Feb. 28 – Mar. 28, 2014
(By appointment only the week of Mar. 10)
This sculpture exhibition is the work of a Louisville, Kentucky-based collective of female artists known as ENID: Generations of Women Sculptors. The name is taken from that of the first recognized female sculptor from Louisville, Enid Yandell. Yandell (1869-1934) successfully competed against male artists of her period, winning many important commissions. Notably, she worked on the famous 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition (and World’s Fair) in Chicago. In 1998, a group of local female artisans formed a collective to promote their own sculptural works—naming themselves ENID, in honor of Yandell. Showing regionally, members’ ages range from 40-91years with several members having varying levels of education, from those with graduate degrees to self-taught sculptors.
- Opening Reception for the Artists: Fri., Feb. 28, 5-8 p.m.
