Artists in Our Midst,’ not Thomas Kinkade

Exhibitions such as “Artists in Our Midst” are here to remind us that many talented artists are living right here, right now. The 26 artists in the juried show, meaning the art must meet certain standards, were selected from Jefferson County or the contiguous counties of Bullitt, Shelby, Oldham, Spencer, Hardin, Clark, Harrison and Floyd.

What catches my eye constantly varies. One day, it must be abstract paintings; another day, I’m all about glass. For this show, the recurring theme of fascination was a group — women artists. Ask a non-art person to name a female artist, and you might get a blank stare. I didn’t arrive at the gallery to focus on works by only females, but they are the ones that grabbed my attention.

Per the National Museum of Women in the Arts, 51 percent of visual artists are female and have earned half of the Master of Fine Arts, or MFA, degrees in America. While that looks like gender equality in art, pay and representation are another story. But we are focusing on the good news here.

When I sketched [dancer] Martha Graham

He was for many years a fixture on television, called on to make instant illustrations during sporting events and elections. He portrayed presidents (Jimmy Carter), public figures (Robert F. Kennedy, Martin Luther King Jr.) and such cultural icons as Leonard Bernstein, Frank Sinatra, Mae West, Diana Ross, the Beatles and James Brown. Among athletes, a few of his countless subjects included Muhammad Ali, Joe Namath, Sandy Koufax and Jack Nicklaus.
