Kentucky Museum of Art and Craft Wendell Castle Exhibition
The Kentucky Museum of Art and Craft at 715 West Main Street in Louisville has opened a new exhibition in honor of the renowned master American craftsman Wendell Castle. This exhibition will run from now through February 4th, 2013. The exhibition is entitled "Forms within Forms, the 21st Century", and celebrates Castle's uncanny ability to create sculptural furniture as he enters his 80th year. This show coincides with other openings in New York and Connecticut also celebrating his life and accomplishments.
The museum is closed on Mondays, but both Castle's work and the permanent exhibits will be available Tuesday through Friday from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. until 5 p.m. The permanent collection in the third-floor Brown Forman Gallery offers museum goers an amazing view of local Kentucky artists all year round, featuring works by Minnie and Garland Adkins, Rude Osolnik, Alma Lesch and Wayne Ferguson.
The Kentucky Museum of Art and Craft provides an opportunity to see some of Castle's most amazing creations, like his Caligari Piano, alongside Kentucky's own renowned artists. The Museum of Art and Craft was founded in 1981 and has reached out to provide art education to well over 100 schools, community centers and libraries. The facility encourages art and creativity with enlightening interactive programs, gallery tours, hands-on workshops, teacher training and summer craft camps six days a week.
