24 Artists Selected for Kentucky Visions at the Capitol
"With the corps of artists selected for this exhibit, Kentucky's arts community is putting its best foot forward." -- Lydia Bailey Brown, Kentucky Arts Council executive director
FRANKFORT, Ky. (Feb. 7) -- The work of 24 Kentucky artists will grace the hallways of the Capitol Annex beginning Feb. 7.
The Kentucky Arts Council exhibit "Kentucky Visions at the Capitol" will be on display 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, from Feb. 7 through March 31 at the Annex. The exhibit features 58 individual pieces by Kentucky Crafted artists and Al Smith Individual Artist Fellowship recipients.
"Longtime legislators have always remarked how much they look forward to hosting 'Visions' at the Annex, but there are new legislators joining the General Assembly this session who will discover outstanding artwork by Kentucky's finest artists," said Lydia Bailey Brown, arts council executive director. "With the corps of artists selected for this exhibit, Kentucky's arts community is putting its best foot forward."
Michael McCardwell, a 1998 recipient of an Al Smith Fellowship and current Kentucky Crafted artist, has three pieces in this year's exhibit: "My Town," "Funny Drawing" and "APDYF," all in colored ink. McCardwell said he values arts council exhibits like "Visions" as opportunities for artists to stretch their creative legs.
"Art can involve creativity and some experiments in art are not successful," McCardwell said. "But one needs the freedom to try new things and the Kentucky Arts Council provides that support, both as an agency and through the individual staff members who take a personal interest in my work.
"It's an honor to be in any show, and having my work in this show, one that represents work from artists across the state, makes an artist feel that their work is valued by our government."
