The Horse: 2D Equine Art: Drawing and Painting
A Juried Exhibition

Application Deadline: November 22, 2019
Exhibition: January 27 – May 23, 2020

The horse is an image strongly associated with Kentucky. The Living Arts and Science Center will feature a juried exhibition in its Atrium Gallery of equine art to celebrating springtime in the Bluegrass. Today, the practice is as strong as ever with many talented artists using the horse as subject matter. The Horse will feature a diverse group of gifted artists who depict the subtle beauty of one of Kentucky’s most recognized icons with paint, pencil and charcoal.
For this juried exhibition, the Living Arts and Science Center will do a national call for equine art. Pieces selected from this call will be on display in the LASC’s Atrium Gallery this coming spring. The full exhibition will run January 27 through May 23, 2020 with a Gallery Hop reception scheduled for Friday, March 20 from 5:00 PM to 8:00 PM. A second Gallery Hop reception will occur on Friday, May 15 from 5:00 PM to 8:00 PM.

Day of the Dead 2013-Andrés Cruz 23-X2

Community Schools Arts Project 2019
A Part of the LASC Day of the Dead Festival

Application Deadline: October 11, 2019
Exhibition: October 27, 2019 – November 1, 2019

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). The Ancient Aztecs of Central Mexico believed that the monarch butterflies were the returning souls of their fallen warriors and that they should be honored. Day of the Dead is a joyous time when the souls of loved ones are remembered and rejoiced. Join us in creating monarch butterflies to be installed outside along the fence by the Old Episcopal Burying Ground at the corner of East 3rd Street and Elm Tree Lane. The monarchs will be tied to the fence surrounding the property of the cemetery for all to see a week leading up to LASC’s Day of the Dead Festival on Friday, November 1 from 5:00 PM – 9:00 PM.
