5 Kentucky Coffeetree Café, 235 W Broadway … Paula Clark creates seriously whimsical works, guaranteed to make you smile.
Artist Statement—From the time I could hold a crayon, I have made some kind of art. Now my interests range from watercolor to fiber to furniture and everything in between. My current "Story" series is about escape from the real world into a fantasy world where I always get my way. I would be happy if this series aided someone else's escape also. Other art forms, that I use, such as fiber and furniture repainting, are experimental. As there is not much that is new under the sun, I challenge myself to find something new in an old form. The process of finding something new in something old can be quite entertaining. Art lessons are available. 859-312-2968

d Suite 711 … "Homages": Meet Jo Leadingham, a teacher of art history whose drawings engage the subjects of her teaching. Artist Statemen–"Homages", the current series of ink drawings I'm developing are initiated by a small sketch of a well-known work of art, or sometimes with a portrait of an artist. The composition iscompleted by developing a complementary environment for the initial images by rendering appropriate objects and subjects derived from my surroundings –architectural fragment, vessels, rocks, foliage, fragments of figures, etc.—as well as from images of my imagination. I regard the drawings as visual odes to the images I delighted in during many years of teaching art history for
Georgetown College and 27 years at Kentucky State University. The drawings are small in scale, quite detailed, and reflect my particular admiration for the abundance of detail in 15th Century Flemish painting, as well as the compositions and markings of the work of Paul Cezanne. The subjects derive from ancient periods to the present.
