Folk Art Masters/Apprentices Exhibit Moves to Madisonville

makings masterMADISONVILLE, KY (11/16/12) – Explore Kentucky's artistic and cultural traditions and the relationships between the people who contribute to their legacy at "The Makings of a Master: Kentucky Folk Art Apprenticeships" exhibition now through Dec.17 at the Glema Mahr Center for the Arts in Madisonville.
 
Kentucky's rich cultural traditions can be traced back to the state's wealth of master musicians, dancers, craftspeople and other artists who create and teach within their communities. Featured in the Kentucky Arts Council exhibition are more than 60 folk and traditional arts apprenticeships documented by the Kentucky Folklife Program between 1993 and 2011.
 
"Kentucky's folk traditions have shaped our state's heritage from our earliest days," said Lori Meadows, arts council executive director. "'The Makings of a Master' offers a glimpse into the past and examines the artists who work to conserve our traditions today."
 
The exhibition weaves stories, artifacts and visual components together to give visitors a look at such traditions as old-time string music, storytelling, Chinese dancing, square dance calling, basket making and thumb-picking guitar styles. Visitors explore the relationships between master folk artists and their apprentices and the culture they share through art, video interviews, live concerts and demonstrations.
 
Concerts featuring a variety of musicians will be performed in conjunction with the exhibition. See master musician Carla Gover and her apprentice, Jeri Katherine Howell; and Maiden Radio, featuring Cari Norris' apprentice, Julia Purcell, at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 16. See Kentucky Wild Horse with master fiddler John Harrod and his apprentice, Rossi Clark; and master musician and storyteller Mitch Barrett, at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 17. Both concerts are at the Glema Mahr Center for the Arts. General admission is $9, $4.50 for students.
