Gallery Hop: Lennon Michalski, Miniature Invitational, & Kentucky Wildlife Exhibition
March 15 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Featuring Lennon Michalski, Miniature Invitational, and the Kentucky Wildlife Exhibition
Artist Lennon Michalski creates “…imagery of a world where the line between organic and machine becomes blurred” with his deeply compelling large scale paintings. Michalski will be featured in a solo exhibition this spring in the LASC’s Glo Gallery. His approach to the process of art making is truly unique and unusual. Through process, Michalski has developed an aesthetic that is visceral, intuitive, and completely his own. Painstakingly, Michalski slowly builds multiple layers of pigments and varnish upon large wooden panels. He uses color to captivate the viewer to explore his multifaceted ideas. Michalski’s art teeters somewhere between the color field paintings of the abstract expressionists and the covers of 1950’s pulp science fiction novels. This makes perfect sense with Michalski’s background in both fine and digital art.
In the 1700’s, amateur artists started painted miniature portraits on ivory using water colors. Before photography, this practice became so popular that soon academically trained artists began producing ‘miniature’ portraits for the eager public. This practice continued until photography replaced it. Invited area artists asked to create miniature versions of their art will be featured in this unique group exhibition of art produced to a minuscule scale. Participating artists include: Steve Armstrong, Diane Kahlo, Mary Rezny, Robert Morgan, Amy Chase, Rob Bridges, Blake Eames, Mike Goodlett, Bruce New, Patrick Smith, Kate Sprengnether, Marco Logsdon, Guy Mendes, Ruth Adams, Mollie Rabiner, Hunter Stamps, Carleton Wing, Lawrence Tarpey, Jerielle Hanlo, Kiptoo Tarus, Rae Goodwin, Lori Larusso, Mia Cinelli, Jennifer Reis, Ed Franklin, Stacey Chinn, Nathan Zamarron, Elizabeth Mesa-Gaido, Georgia Henkel, Arturo Alonzo Sandoval, and Charles Ellis.
Kentucky Wildlife will feature this diverse group of gifted artists that depict the subtle beauty of Kentucky’s animal life with paint and pencil. For this exhibition, the Living Arts and Science Center did a regional call for wildlife art featuring the indigenous species of Kentucky. Participating artists include: Susan Black, Michelle Armstrong, Pat Banks, Monica Barnett, Maureen Berry, Denise Brown, Deborah Brownstein, Jinn Bug, Kathy Conroy, Sabra Lynne Crockett, Jen Deleeuw, Jacqueline Dillard, Elizabeth Farrar, Dianne Goodnight, Deborah Herndon, Devon Horton, Debbie Howard, Libby Jones, Douglas Miller, Stevie Moore, Marshall Smith, Marie Wadell Pearson, James Perkins, Jenni Phillips, Stephanie Potter, Marilyn Sadler, Shane Allen Smith, Yvonne Todd, SuZanne Troske, Karen Weeks, Anna Fedorchuk, Wendi Smith, Jerielle Hanlon and Agustin Zarate.
