Joel Feldman and Todd Herzberg: Fables

March 15 – April 22, 2017
Gallery Hop Reception: Friday, March 17, 5 – 8 PM, with Artist Talk at 6:00 PM

University of Kentucky Art Professor and printmaker Joel Feldman along with UK graduate student Todd Herzberg will explore myths with their take on Aesop’s Fables. Throughout time artists have used myths and fables as subject matter. From Ancient Greek pottery, through the Renaissance, and the modern era artists have used tales of myths, fables and legends as the vehicle to express themselves and their ideas. Feldman and Herzberg will use their unique approaches to printmaking to retell many of the classic stories of Aesop’s Fables in this exhibition that explores narrative art through the eyes of two gifted printmakers.
