FRANKFORT, KY (8 Feb 2018) - For the first time in its history, the Kentucky Arts Council's traveling exhibit "Makings of a Master" will be hosted by two separate organizations in a single community.

The exhibit features a variety of musical instruments, tools and artworks made by master tradition-bearers, interpretive panels, display photos and quotes, along with a push-button video display. Half the exhibit will be on display in Campbellsville University's Pence-Chowning Art Gallery, 205 University Drive, while the other half will reside at Taylor County Public Library, 1316 E. Broadway Street, for the duration of the exhibit's stay in Campbellsville through February 23.

In conjunction with the exhibit, Kentucky blacksmith Karine Maynard of Lawrenceburg-based Maynard Studios will give a presentation Monday, 2pmCT/3pmET, February 12,2018, at the gallery on her life as a tradition-bearer and artist entrepreneur. Master folk musician Sue Massek and her apprentice Melody Youngblood will perform at5pmCT/6pmET, Thursday, February 22, 2018, at the library.

Davie Reneau, director of the university's Pence-Chowning Art Gallery, said that Campbellsville did not want to miss the opportunity to host "Makings of a Master."

"Our gallery cannot accommodate the volume of the exhibit, but the library in Campbellsville was agreeable to help share in the exhibit. They are doing the music portion of it and we are doing the visual arts," Reneau said. "I think this show, at both locations, will have a lot of community interest."

For more information on the "Makings of a Master" exhibit, contact Mark Brown, arts council folk and traditional arts director, at or 502-892-3115.

The Kentucky Arts Council, the state arts agency, fosters environments for Kentuckians to value, participate in and benefit from the arts. Kentucky Arts Council funding is provided by the Kentucky General Assembly and the National Endowment for the Arts.
