Brief DescriptionExhibition of Medically Themed Artworks
TypeAttraction
CategoryArt Gallery
DescriptionMedicine and its practitioners have worked to improve the lives of people for millennia. Since the advent of medicine, there have also been visual artists to document procedures, illustrate manuals, and create works exploring the emotional aspects of the field. Kaviar Gallery is providing a showcase for visual artists addressing the various components of health and medicine in their work. Through “Donate without Loss” we hope to shed light on the prevalence of medicine in our lives. We also wish to raise awareness for blood/bone marrow stem cell donation, and the fact that it’s no longer an invasive procedure in over 90% of cases. There is a critical need for donors; the average person currently only has a 60% chance of finding a match. For non-Caucasian ethnicities, the chance of a match falls to only 20%.

This juried group exhibition showcases artworks featuring the various components of health and medicine. This may include but is not limited to works addressing medical science, medical equipment, anatomy, cellular structure, health personnel, patients, healing, & wellness. Allie Jensen is exhibiting an anatomical painting exploring the inner structures of a human heart in “Heart No. 5.” Shae Goodlett highlights medical equipment in his vibrant screen prints, “Tangle” and “Clip.” Cellular structure is augmented in Luke Seward’s chemigram series titled, “Chance.” Seward states, “Applying a lens to a lensless photographic process invites an investigation of detail, like a scientist using a microscope. The magnifying glass mimics a petri dish, a place where cells are explored, altered, created, and studied.” While many artists explore the scientific side of the medical field, Connie Vice turns her focus to health personnel and patient care in her painting, “Compassion Knows No Barriers.”

Artistic media and interpretation of the theme vary greatly in this show consisting of 17 artists from 5 states. The works in “Donate without Loss” include acrylic, oil, graphite, charcoal, ink, watercolor, glass, assemblage, metalwork, screen-print, jewelry, mixed media, and alternative photographic processes. Carolyn Spears is exhibiting her blown glass works exploring cellular structure in “Propagate” and “Disseminate.” Amber Jeffries’ metalwork piece, “Deep Breaths” features the human heart and lungs rendered in copper, nickel, and silver. Learning experiences for budding health students are highlighted in Cody Duran’s charcoal/pastel drawing, “Dissection of a Bullfrog.” Peggy Skemp creates wearable art through her sterling silver jewelry: “Vascular Ring,” “Anatomical Lung Locket,” and “Anatomical Heart Locket.” Debra Lott addresses the interrelation of human health and the environment in her oil/collage painting, “Bloodlines.” Lott states, “The figure is connected and confined by wires, plastic tubes and tree roots, symbolizing human veins and representing our dependence on modern medicine, technology and nature.”

“Donate without Loss” will run from May 26th – August 26th. The Opening Reception will be held at Kaviar Gallery on May 26th 6-9PM during the F.A.T Friday Trolley Hop! We are partnering with Louisville Visual Art to get the word out about the importance of donor need; we are looking for $7,000 to cover the cost of a billboard and media advertising. If you or your organization can help with any portion of this, contact Craig Kaviar: ckaviar@gmail.com or 502-938-6762.
