Please join us for the opening reception for the identity exhibit, featuring work by artists with disabilities from across the Commonwealth. The artwork in identity includes all media, and the artists come from different communities, learned their art form in different ways and represent the diversity of the spectrum of people with disabilities. Each artist has self-identified as a “person with a disability,” and has shared his or her perspectives about how having a disability does (or does not) affect and shape the individual personally and as an artist. The artist’s statements and artwork in the exhibit are meant to open a discussion.

One might call this group exhibition demonstration of both the world and of class: one great colorful world with its many classes and cultures and reaches and beliefs. A world that is anything but black and white. A striped world. Diversity is a beautiful thing. As participating Russian artist Luc Mistrotov puts it, “all my years in Louisville I’ve been impressed how many different people are able to live, to communicate, to work together and hold their cultural, religious and other traditions, their diversity, without conflict.” Louisville, International Compassionate City, seems the perfect place for The Striped Show.

LOUISVILLE CLAY POTTERS
The potters of Louisville Clay, many nationally recognized, started their association in 2002 with a dedication to “enriching individual creativity” and “enhancing the understanding and appreciation of ceramic art.” To understand and appreciate ceramic art is to understand and appreciate possibility, for the diversity of possibilities inherent in the manipulation of clay have held the fascination of humans since the discovery of fire.

APRIL 1 – JUNE 30, 2011
Sisters and Brothers, an exhibition that is supported in part through an award by the National endowment for the Arts, has many themes. The overriding exhibition theme is simply that ll members of the human race are sisters and brother. 25 artist pairs, consisting of a professional artist and an artist with a developmental disability, were chosen to exhibit. Then each pair chose their own theme, and had the choice of creating one collaborative piece, or two separate interpretations. The results could be obviously complementary or vastly different-or both.
Some of the artists are true siblings by blood, and some by heart. Some artists did not know each other well at the onset, and some have shared years of connection. In Sisters and Brothers, privileged artists of great renown exhibit with partners who may, by necessity, paint with their mouths. In this atmosphere, boundaries become meaningless. Distinctions fad away, and what is left is only the beauty of the art and the beauty of the artists.
