September 16 – November 1, 2016
Gallery Hop Reception: Friday, September 16, 5 – 8 PM, with Artist Talk at 6:00 PM

The LASC’s annual Day of the Dead exhibits brings together the rich visual traditions of this holiday that celebrates the memories of family, friends and other public figures. Presented in conjunction with our Day of the Dead Festival, these exhibits generally feature artists of Latino heritage or artists that make work in response to the Mexican celebration Dia de los Muertos.

Originally from Veracruz, Mexico, sculptor and painter Adan Utrera examines his dreams and celebrates his heritage through the creation of his colorful alebrijes; a Mexican folk art made from paper mache, and his imaginative works on canvas. Utrera has created a new series of pieces specifically for this year’s festival with one based on the Catrina; the iconic female skeleton originally developed by 19th Century printmaker Jose Posada and now adopted into the imagery used during the celebration. In addition, Mexican alebrijes created by 5th grade students from Breckinridge Elementary will be featured in our new Children’s Gallery. These works were created during a workshop with artist Adan Utrera.

Reflecting more traditional Day of the Dead imagery, Casa de la Cultura Hispana de Lexington will present a traditional Mexican ofrenda or altar in the new Glo Gallery containing symbols and imagery typically found in the southern regions of Mexico which will be on display leading up to LASC’s Day of the Dead Festival on Tuesday, November 1st from 5:00PM – 9:00PM.

Afterimage
January 14 – March 13, 2015
Gallery Hop Reception: Friday, January 16, 5 – 8 PM

The phenomenon of afterimage occurs when an image is stared upon for a specific length of time (usually around 30 seconds) and then replaced with a white field. The image that now appears on the white field is the afterimage. This type of afterimage is the negative of the original image and the colors in the afterimage are the complementary colors of the original.

To the right is an example of this phenomenon. Please stare at the red circle on the left for 30 to 45 seconds. Then look at the black dot on the right side of the paper. You should now see its afterimage.

Invited area artists asked to produce paintings using the phenomenon of afterimage will be featured in this unique exhibition that combines art (color theory) and science (optics of the eye) presented in conjunction with our Science Discovery: The Nature of Color.

Diverse Traditions:
Imagery and Symbols in Latin America

October 6 – November 1, 2014
Day of the Dead Festival: Saturday, November 1, 5-9 PM

The LASC’s annual Day of the Dead exhibition brings together the rich visual traditions of this holiday that celebrates the memories of family, friends and other public figures. Presented in conjunction with our Day of the Dead Festival, this annual exhibition features artists of Latino heritage or artists that make work in response to the Mexican celebration Dia de los Muertos.

This year’s exhibition pairs the incredible talents of two celebrated regional artists Soreyda Benedit Begley and Rebeca Calderón Pittman with artist Robert Morgan’s private collection of historical masks from Mexico, Honduras, and Guatemala, as we explore the diverse imagery and symbols used during Day of the Dead and other celebrations in Latin America. Originally from Honduras and now residing in Lexington, fashion designer Soreyda Benedit Begley creates works from recycled and repurposed materials and transforms them into elegant pieces art. Begley will produce a new dress for this exhibition that will incorporate Day of the Dead imagery derived from her native Honduras. Through her current work, Cincinnati artist Rebeca Calderón Pittman will present colorful abstract paintings and digital prints that reflect the vibrant colors of her Caribbean homeland, Guatemala. Pittman will create a work specifically for the exhibition based on Day of the Dead celebration practices in Guatemala.

Reflecting more traditional Day of the Dead imagery, the exhibit will also showcase the masks from the private collection of Lexington artist Robert Morgan. Collected from many years of travel to Mexico, Honduras, and Guatemala, Morgan’s masks will effectively illustrate the subtle regional differences of symbols used during Day of the Dead and other festivals throughout Latin America. In the LASC’s library, Dia de los Muertos experts Jacobo and Janice Aragon will create a traditional Mexican altar contain symbols and imagery typically found in the southern regions of Mexico.

A Closer Look at the Art of Cricket Press

August 13 – September 26, 2014
Gallery Hop Reception: Friday, September 19, 5-8pm

Artists Brian and Sara Turner have been making posters for nearly a decade. In 2003, they started Cricket Press from a tiny studio in their home of Lexington, KY. Since then, they have created gig posters for hundreds of bands ranging from indie-rock to free-jazz, bluegrass to punk; as well as promotional work for events both local and national.

Together they have created their own unique and quirky vision of the world, translating their illustrations through the hand-printed processes of letterpress and screen-printing. When they’re not ruining their clothes slinging ink on posters, Cricket Press also spends a good deal of time on numerous design and illustration projects, as well as making various hand-printed goods and ephemera. The Living Arts and Science Center is proud to present the talented duo behind Cricket Press in this unique exhibition featuring the collective and individual art of Brian and Sara Turner in the LASC’s intimate Gloria Singletary Gallery.

CARDBOARD CREATIONS

An interactive exhibition of art made from recycled and repurposed materials.

January 6 – February 8, 2013
Every person uses over 700 pounds of cardboard each year and paper products, including cardboard, now take up over 40% of landfill content. Cardboard Creations is an interactive installation intended to engage participants in an exploration of recycling and the creative re-use of paper products. Presented in conjunction with our Science Discovery Exhibit, Forest Findings, visitors will be encouraged to draw connections between product consumption and its impact on our natural environment. Visiting Field Trip groups will create their own art details that will be added to the exhibit, allowing it to evolve over time. Cardboard Creations will feature a cardboard forest created by artist Jenni Phillips.

Cardboard Creations in the Library is a separate exhibition featuring cardboard sculptures created by Western Kentucky University’s art students. As part of their 3D foundations under the directions of Professor David Marquez, WKU students used recycled and reclaimed cardboard to render everyday objects and construct self portraits. These cardboard structures will emphasize the importance of reusing and recycling materials and will provide an inspiring example of creative thought and innovation through repurposing materials.

The Art of Robert Morgan

October 22 – November 2, 2012

Day of the Dead is an ancient holiday that can be traced back to the time of the Aztecs. Celebrated in Mexico and in other cultures around the world, Dia de los Muertos, celebrates past lives in meaningful, colorful, and often humorous ways. Robert Morgan is a native Kentuckian and nationally recognized artist who repurposes and recycles materials that others have discarded. His works of art often incorporate hundreds of items to express something entirely new. In this new body of work, Morgan draws from many cultures to show humans struggling with and being tricked by death. He tells all his stories with a great sense of humor. Field Trip groups will be led through the exhibit by the artist, will learn about Day of the Dead and cultural expressions, and will create their own Day of the Dead artwork with recycled materials.

Work by Willie RascoeWILLIE RASCOE
The Core of Nature’s Beauty
Art of an African American Folk Artist

August 20 – October 16
Opening Reception: Friday, September 7, 5:00 – 8:00 PM
Artist Workshop: Sunday, September 9, 1:00 – 4:00 PM
School Field Trips: Scheduled individually
Gallery Hop: Friday, September 21, 5 – 8 PM

The Living Arts & Science Center is pleased to present a new exhibition of guest artist, Willie Rascoe, as well as a workshop with the artist for guests to learn about his process and to create their own artwork with natural materials. Presented as part of the Lexington Roots and Heritage Festival, an opening reception with the artist will also take place on Friday, September 7 at the Living Arts & Science Center.

Born in rural Christian County, KY, in 1950, Willie Rascoe was the first black student to graduate from the Sinking Fork Elementary School following racial integration of the public schools. After serving in the 82nd Airborne Division and completing an Associate of Arts degree at Hopkinsville Community College, the Kentucky native joined his father’s business as a builder. Shortly thereafter, he felt the urge to create and was drawn to the pieces of driftwood and other natural materials that he would find during long contemplative walks along the lakes, rivers and Work by Willie Rascoewoods of his Western Kentucky home. Rascoe began sculpting and carving the driftwood that he had collected and Rascoe the construction worker became Rascoe the artist.

His complex and intriguing abstractions are inspired by African imagery and Rascoe’s highly evolved human and animal forms evoke a spiritual quality that blends wood, seeds, bones, shells and other natural materials. Stains are often created from local berries and sawdust.

During Rascoe’s stay in Lexington, the Living Arts & Science Center will also host field trip programs for students to view the exhibit, meet the artist, and explore creating their own artwork with natural materials.

Rascoe has exhibited across Kentucky and has won numerous awards. He was most recently recognized as a 2012 Tanne Foundation Award Recipient, a national foundation that supports artistic endeavors in culturally underserved communities and underappreciated forms of artistic expression. Rascoe’s work is also included in several permanent collections such as the Kentucky Folk Art Center, the Kentucky Arts and Crafts Foundation, and the Kentucky History Center.

Thanks to Campbell Hagerman Flats for hosting Willie while he is in town for the exhibit.

Animal Facts, Fairy Tales, and Fictions

Animal Facts, Fairy Tales, and Fictions

April 16 – May 25
Gallery Hop Opening—Friday, April 20, 5 – 8 pm

Animals are frequent subjects in our stories and Fairy Tales. Alice in Wonderland, Where the Wild Things Are, and The Cat in the Hat represent but a few of the rich history of animals represented literature. Findings of animals in mythologies and folktales from around the world are endless. These animals awaken our creative spirit and feed our imagination. Their unique characteristics such as horns, tails, feathers, and scales, provide endless inspiration to artists whether depicting animals in their truest forms or in more imaginative representations. We relate to their characteristics, such as speed, strength, agility, and their keen sense of perception. As we associate with their characteristics and combine them, new animals are imagined like dragons, unicorns, harpies, and griffins. This exhibit explores the use of animals as inspiration and the artists’ process of drawing from stories of the past while creating new stories as well.

Music by selected students from the SCAPA Band will perform throughout Gallery Hop.

A Special Outdoor Installation of Monarchs by the Community.

Every autumn, millions of beautiful orange and black monarchs flock to Mexico to avoid the cold weather of the North. Their migration coincides with El Dia de Los Muertos (Day of the Dead).

Blueprints for a Garden by Isaac PowellCompanion Planting:
New Paintings by Isaac Powell

August 22 – October 7
Gallery Hop opening—Friday, September 16, 5 – 8 pm

In Isaac Powell’s art, the organic imagery of plants and landforms float on top of backgrounds of saturated colors and multicolored squares. Botanical cuttings are transplanted into new environments and there is a playful experimentation with the balance between order and chaos, and growth and decay. Some of Powell’s paintings are interactive with panels that slide or open.

Through his paintings, Powell interweaves the themes of life, growth, and reproduction with those of his own personal history. Having been born without a right hand, the flora in his work directly references the body, its appendages and digits. By addressing his own anxieties through the imagery of plant cuttings and grafts, he has developed his own method for confronting both awkwardness and beauty.

Powell is a graduate of the MFA program at Washington State University and now teaches at Eastern Kentucky University. Recently his work has been on display at The Armory Show 2011 in New York City, and at the Smithsonian Institution’s International Gallery in Washington, DC.

Pattern PlayPattern Play

April 4 – May 28
Gallery Hop Opening Reception: Friday, April 15, 5 – 8 pm

From circles to stripes, squares and spikes, local and regional artists are showing off their creativity with imaginative plays on pattern. The range of work within this exhibit will extend from painterly abstractions of shapes to the mathematical precision of computer assisted creations.

You will marvel at the variety of patterns these artists have presented and the diversity of sources from which they are inspired—from the natural geometries of plants, to patterns influenced by a cultural identity. While many artists utilize outside inspiration, others still are creating new patterns by playing with shapes, colors, and repetition to create their own unique designs. Whatever the inspiration, it is curious to see the sometimes quite unpredictable ways that patterns are formed and utilized within the artists’ domain.

Friday, February 19, 5 – 8 pm

Two local fiber art groups recently stretched their collaborative skills to create the beautiful and delightful collections in this exhibition. The Japanese-American Quilt Bee of Lexington created a “Whisper Quilt”—a group of quilts created in a semi-secret fashion. One quilter was originally inspired by a landscape photograph and created a quilt based on that inspiration. She shared her quilt with another member who then created a quilt based on the 1st quilter’s interpretation of the photo. The 3rd quilter used the 2nd quilt as inspiration and created her own quilt from that. And so on it went as eight artists created eight quilts, inspired by one another as well as the original photograph. The second collection comes from the Louisville Area Fiber and Textile Artists (LAFTA). This talented group, in a progressive fashion, created dolls that traveled from artist to artist. Each artist contributed to each doll once and documented the dolls metamorphosis in the dolls’ travel journals.
