47th Annual Kentuck Festival of the Arts

Saturday, October 20 & Sunday, October 21, 2018
Open to the general public 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. both days.

 

The Kentuck Festival, ranked by the Alabama Tourism Department as a "Top 10 Event in 2018",  nurtures artistic expression by providing an opportunity for undiscovered and established artists to share and sell their work and to educate the public about the creative efforts of artists, all under tall southern pines.
 
Throughout the years, many "undiscovered" artists who have exhibited at Kentuck are now in textbooks, galleries, and museums, such as the High Museum in Atlanta and the Smithsonian Museums in Washington, D.C.
 
To this end, Kentuck strives to showcase work of exceptional quality and creativity by artists in a variety of areas: contemporary art and sculpture, contemporary craft, traditional/heritage craft, and folk/self-taught artists.

The Kentuck Festival of the Arts is a juried show in its 47th year that attracts 10,000-15,000 visitors each year. Festival attendees pay $10 per day, children 12 and under are free. Along with more than 250 exhibiting artists, the Festival features educational demonstrations, interactive arts areas, children's arts activities, music, storytelling, craft beer, and food trucks. The Kentuck Festival of the Arts has been designated a Local Legacy by the U.S. Library of Congress and was recognized on TIME.com as "the Authentic American Experience" for the state of Alabama.  The Festival has been featured in Smithsonian Magazine, voted one of the Top Twenty Events by the Southeast Tourism Society, and described by Southern Livingmagazine as 'the best of all things Southern.’ It was featured on the National Endowment of the Arts website as one of the top arts programs in the state, and is listed as a "Top 10 Event in 2018" by the Alabama Tourism Department.

Festival proceeds help support the funding of next year’s Festival and the year-round programming of Kentuck Art Center in Northport's historic downtown district, where resident artists' studios, exhibition spaces, a community clay studio, and gallery shop are situated around a courtyard and sculpture garden. The Kentuck Art Center presents regular exhibitions, showcasing southern folk artists and traditional and contemporary American craft by both established and emerging artists. More than 200 Festival and regional artists are represented in Kentuck’s Gallery Shop.

Paul Barrett began collecting art in 1985, and his collection includes numerous artists who have exhibited at the Kentuck Festival (with special focus on works by Alabama artists and self-taught artists). He worked as director of both the photography gallery, AGNES, and Stephen Smith Fine Art, and has curated projects at the Abroms-Engel Institute for the Visual Arts at UAB, Birmingham Civil Rights Institute, and the Birmingham Museum of Art. Paul recently curated A Harder Task Than Making Bricks Without Straw at the UA Gallery at the Dinah Washington Cultural Arts Center, featuring works by Mary Lee Bendolph, Deborah Carter, Chris Clark, Thornton Dial, Lonney Holley, and Charlie Lucas.

Teer & SoNo Gallery:
"A Heaven of a Place: Selections from the Kentuck Permanent Collection," showcases work by Kentuck Festival Artists of today and years past. Highlighting some of the most profound and prominent contributors to folk, outsider, and self-taught art history, the Kentuck Permanent Collection contains work by Sam "the Dot Man" McMillan, Bernice Sims, Ruby Williams, "Mr. Imagination" Gregory Warmack, Buddy Snipes, Jerry Brown, Ned Berry, Yvonne Wells, Miz Thang, Michael Banks, "Dr. Bob" Shaffer, Sam Ezell, Lonnie Holley, to name a few. Don't miss this chance to see the history of Kentuck in person.

Museum Gallery:
Kentuck Art Center is proud to present the sculpture of Dennis Thompson. He has won numerous awards but is also famous for turning down a ground floor opportunity with a little company called "Dreamworks" in the early '70s.

He says: "The inspiration for my sculpture is based in my longstanding interest in paleontology and archaeology; an exploration of how universal forms evolve and adapt. I create sculpture that reflects the fluid and dynamic forms found in the natural world. My curiosity about how these forms developed and how different cultures perceive these forms is the driving force behind my work. My work is often viewed as "fantasy" art. However, for me, the dragons developed more as a cultural interpretation of archetypal reptilian forms rather than a representation of mythological creatures. The sculptures I build are diverse and encompass a wide range of richly organic forms. It's all about the bones."


Courtyard of Wonders:
Enjoy live music from G.W. Henderson and booths from local vendors.

Artists Studios:
Kentuck's Studio Artists will have open studios for browsing, learning, observing, and buying.

Museum Gallery:
Leanna Leithauser-Lesley has a degree in visual arts from Auburn University and has spent most of her life drawing and painting. For fun, she's always needlepointed. Until college, she needlepointed painted canvases that were purchased in a needlepoint shop. Once she was in college, she could no longer afford hand-painted canvases, so she started designing her own. Her work has evolved into stitching portraits. Though she doesn't draw or paint the image onto the actual canvas, her ability to draw helps her needlepoint; she looks at a photo while she stitches, just as she would look at a still life while drawing. She follows the line and the form, lights and darks, making for a perfect marriage of her talents.

Lesley is compelled by the power of jazz music, the drama of photography and the intention to raise the awareness of needlepoint to an art form. She is preoccupied with the idea of weaving together the quiet, methodical ways of needlepointing with the often-unrestrained methods of jazz, while also capturing the emotion of the photograph she prefers to stitch. Rejecting the shortcuts associated with technology, she chooses to rely on her training as a visual artist to paint the canvas with yarn, using a photograph as her still life. Each piece stitched is a unique freehand homage to the musician she decides to needlepoint.

Jazz, an American art form, is the product of a cultural collaboration and a universal language of tolerance and freedom. Lesley’s heartfelt exhibition “Textures of Jazz” reveals the story of lives profoundly lived and layered with experience.

Kentuck Art Center is proud to present the work of Col. Lee Busby (Ret).

Lee is an incredible sculptor and ceramicist, and says his most interesting work is a juncture between the two.

Kentuck Art Center is proud to present the work of Col. Lee Busby (Ret). A native Tuscaloosan and University of Alabama graduate, Lee has had a distinguished career in the United States Marine Corps and was Vice Chief of Staff to General John F Kelly. Lee is an incredible sculptor and ceramicist, and he says his most interesting work is a juncture between the two.

"Col. Lee's interest in sculpting began to overlap with his military experience when he decided to look up Alabamians who'd been killed in Iraq or Afghanistan. He decided to contact one of the families, hoping that the parents would be open to him creating a sculpture honoring their son's likeness. Col. Lee reached out to the father of Johnny "Mike" Spann, of north Alabama – a Marine Captain killed overseas while he was working for the CIA. Mike's father met several times with Col. Lee, and they finally got the likeness down. This was only the beginning for Col. Lee, who realized the impact of his gift. 'I'm no Michelangelo, but I know the world that these people operate in and I know what they went through. And, I do have some ability to sculpt. So, that's what I want to do.''

Museum Gallery:
Kentuck Art Center is proud to present the work of Kentuck Festival Guest Artist Missionary Mary Proctor. Proctor's painting "Art Heals" says it all--"I Mary have been painting since 95. I have been painting nationwide. My mission is to show you can make good out of anything." In 1994, three of Proctor's family members perished in a home fire while trying to find their way out. A year later, Mary received a spiritual message, "the door is the way." She followed directions, painted an old door, leaned it up against her chain link fence, and sold it to a passing collector. More doors were commissioned, and a show in New York convinced Proctor that art was her calling. Her work has been featured in the American Visionary Museum, Raw Vision Magazine, the Smithsonian Anacostia Museum, and in Kentuck's Permanent Collection. In 2015, she was voted Folk Artist of the Year by the Folk Art Society of America. Mary Proctor's work was recently part of a large gift to the Metropolitan Museum from the Souls Grown Deep Foundation. Click here to read more about Mary in an article from Bitter Southerner. Meet this inspirational artist at Art Night, June 7th, at Kentuck Art Center's Main Gallery (artist talk at 6:30 pm), or Friday, June 8th, at Kentuck's Hotel Indigo Gallery in the lobby of Tuscaloosa's Hotel Indigo.
