Damon Farmer | Joyride | May 6 - June 16 These paintings reflect my interest in things mechanical, whimsical and fantastical. Creating and sharing images of implausible activities or conveyances of dubious practicality is a joyful experience for me. The title, JOYRIDE, was chosen to express the desire that a tour of these narrative illustrations of an imagined reality would also spark a little joy in the viewers. Haley Younce | Unmade | May 13 - June 23 Unmade is a series of prints inspired by the investigation of coping mechanisms throughout my mental health journey. Since adolescence, the bed has been a consistent means for an escape from my own thoughts and a fortress in which I surround myself to feel relief from everyday life. This exhibition is a public confession of personal, vulnerable, and intimate moments that allow the viewer to identify with the work through shared experiences. For me, creating this body of work is and continues to be a cathartic act while simultaneously facilitating a conversation of perseverance and hope through mental illness. Kevin Nance | Dreamscapes | May 6 - June 16 In Dreamscapes, Kevin Nance explores the spaces between reality and dreams. Using long exposures, reflections, and various forms of distortion (caused by movement, weather and other phenomena), these photographs conjure alternate dimensions that exist just outside our normal ways of seeing. These are the worlds we glimpse in peripheral vision, at the far edges of consciousness, and on the way in and out of sleep. Nancy Ternasky | Paint, Plants and Play | May 13 - June 23 Nancy Ternasky is a California native who now considers Lexington, KY her home. She is a watercolor artists whose clean, illustrative style reflect her love of nature, botanicals and still life. Joanne Hope Skiles Couch, Jeffrey S. Couch, & Phillip Manga | Bluegrass Transplants: Refugee Edition, Exhibition & Fashion Show | May 13 - June 23 "A refugee is someone who survived and who can create the future." Amela Koluder The refugee experience is filled with heartache, fear, and uncertainty. But it is also filled with hope, and an unquenchable desire to build anew from the ashes. This latest iteration of Bluegrass Transplants is partnering with Philip Manga's nonprofit Box2Box, the successful refugee mentorship program that helps young refugees and their families adjust to life in their new home here in the Bluegrass. The exhibition explores our refugee communities: foreign, domestic, and indigenous by taking the students artwork and incorporating it into fashion apparel that will be on display throughout the exhibition as well as presented in a fashion show.
