The 2024 Abound Credit Union Celebration of the Arts will honor its winning entries with an Awards Ceremony at the Kentucky Museum on Friday, March 1, from 6pm to 8pm. Remarks begin at 7pm.
The Kentucky Museum presents their annual juried art exhibit, which is truly a celebration of this region’s art. Generously sponsored by Abound Credit Union, any Kentucky resident over the age of 18 and living within 65 miles of Bowling Green was eligible to enter a piece of their original artwork created within the last two years. Monetary awards will be presented in ten categories as well as for Best of Show, the Purchase Award, the WKU Student Purchase Award, the World's Greatest Studio Tour Merit Award, and the Artworks Merit Award.
Presentation with Dr. Pearlie Johnson, Independent Scholar and member, Kentucky Humanities Council’s Speakers Bureau. Based on historical records, secondary sources, and oral history interviews with quilters across Kentucky, Johnson discusses 19th century quilts made by black women living and working on slave plantations, traditional quilts made by African American women of the 20th century, as well as contemporary art quilts made by women of all cultural groups of the 21st century.
Her work explores women’s history, storytelling, identity politics, social activism, and empowerment. Her study of quilts in Kentucky is aimed at examining cross-cultural parallels in technique and assemblage, as well as revealing unique designs.
This program was funded in part by Kentucky Humanities.
