This week big events in Louisville and Lexington!
Thursday, April 19 / NextGenArt UK Launch & Exhibition
On April 19, the University of Kentucky Department of Art will host a fundraiser and launch for the NGA-UK Initiative at the Land of Tomorrow Gallery, 233 West Broadway in Louisville, KY. The event will take place from 7pm – 10pm and will feature the work of Theo Edmonds (UK MFA ’13).
Friday, April 20 / Lexington Gallery Hop
Land of Tomorrow, Lexington, in coordination with the University of Kentucky Fine Arts Department, is pleased to announce dontmindifido. an exhibition of recent graduate level artwork by Theo Edmonds, Colleen Toutant, David Martin, Lora Hufton, Abdul Al-Jumaily, Andrea Clark and Natalie Baxter. The exhibition will open on Friday, April 20th with a reception from 7-11pm.
dontmindifido. is a collection of work that speaks to the exchange of ideas between artists who practice within a variety of disciplines and concepts. Shared studio space facilitates continuous discourse that provides threads of connections between seemingly disparate bodies of work.
An exhibit of digital prints from students in the UKCore course, A-S 200, Digital Media Space & Time, will be in the City Gallery at the Downtown Arts Center from 5-8pm—the large-scale images explore metaphoric self-portraiture and commentaries on landscape/land-use, expressing a broadness of aesthetics and perspectives from talented students—both Art Majors and non-Art Majors.
5/3 Pavilion | West Main Street | 9:00-10:00 pm | Free & Open
Later in the evening, from 9-10 pm, students in Doreen Maloney’s A-S 345, Advanced Video, course will ‘video bomb’ the Lexington Art League’s pARTy in the Fifth Third Pavilion. Using pocket-sized projectors, students will throw videos created specifically for this event into the environment, wrapping the available walls, objects, and even people with moving imagery.
Also, don’t forget that UK Theater Department opens a new show this week too!
