Closing reception at 6pm on Friday, April 19th

Land of Tomorrow is pleased to present Sown, a solo exhibition by Lexington artist Erin Eldred. Sown will be in display at our Lexington location from April 12th to the 19th with a closing reception scheduled for Friday, April 19th at 6pm.

Sown will include both 2-D and 3-D pieces, in a variety of mediums. The majority of the exhibition will be fiber-based, including small and large-scale weavings, soft sculpture, crocheted objects, and installation. Much of the imagery in this body of work is inspired by the natural world – particularly the processes of growth, metamorphosis and propagation.

Erin Eldred is currently pursuing a BFA in Art Studio at the University of Kentucky. Her work has been exhibited in the Foundations Exhibition and a Cary Ellis juried exhibition, both at the Barnhart Gallery, at the University of Kentucky and also as part of The Neighborhood Series here at Land of Tomorrow in Lexington, KY.

Land of Tomorrow Presents: This Woman's Work

Mar 22, 2013 - Apr 5, 2013 6:00 P.M.

Land of Tomorrow, 527 E. Third St., Lexington, KY 40508
A solo exhibition by Aurora Childs
On view at Land of Tomorrow, Lexington
March 22 – April 5, 2013
Opening reception at 6pm on Friday, March 22nd

Land of Tomorrow is pleased to present This Woman's Work, a solo exhibition by Lexington artist Aurora Childs. The show will open with a reception on Friday, March 22nd at 6pm and remain on display until April 5th.

This Woman's Work by Aurora Childs looks at labor, tools, and how our lives, though sometimes monotonous, create moments of tremendous beauty. Childs uses repetition and blasé materials to produce moments of beauty with chore based tools like the clothes iron and sewing machine. Through time-intense process and effort, the artist allows moments to happen that are analogous to a “holiday” from labor. These isolated moments occur as pigmented wax castings from cake molds, paintings produced with clothes irons, and drawings produced by sewing on paper.

Childs is a recent graduate of the University of Kentucky. Her work has been on display in the Expanded Music Project at Land of Tomorrow in 2011, The Lexington Art League, and the Carrie Ellis Juried Show in Barnhart Gallery in Lexington, KY.

Sep 18, 2012 5:00 P.M.-7:00 P.M.

Gallery on Main, 128 W. Main Street, Richmond, KY
Featured artist, Crimson Duvall, uses her personal experiences, nature, motherhood and fairytales to create visual stories by painting on canvas and sculpting ceramic, coil-built creatures. She then places them in environments of mixed media and found objects that enrich the pieces with previous histories. With these two bodies of work, Inklings (paintings and drawings) and Wild Flowers (sculptures), a tale of an esoteric world full of Crimson’s creatures begins to unfold.
