      11:00 am – 4:00 pm

      An exploration of 19th century photographic technology with a 21st century vision, each of these photographers uses different photographic techniques to create photographs without the use of a lens. Using a pinhole camera and traditional B&W paper, Kevin Griggs exposes the image for months resulting in an eerie landscape that documents times travels. Darrell Kincer’s silver gelatin images of contrasting typography and illustration begin by placing currency on photographic paper (photogram) and then finishing with a mordançaged, an unusual alternative process that allows for the literal removal of dark emulsion from the print. Nadezda Nikolova relies on wet plate collodion, a 19th century antiquarian process, to create handmade, one-of-a-kind images on aluminum plates. Mary Rezny explores Lumen prints created by placing objects directly on traditional B&W paper and exposing it to sunlight for long periods.

    2. ART EXHIBIT: “Seeing Christ in the Darkness: Georges Rouault as Graphic Artist” at Apostles Anglican Church
      8:30 am – 12:30 pm

      Georges Rouault (1871-1958) was one of the few modern artists whose work was clearly religious, according to Bill Dyrness, Professor of Theology and Culture in Los Angeles. But even though Roault was a life-long Roman Catholic, his work was resisted by the church for much of life, due its dark nature. The graphic art in this exhibition, which was created at the height of the artist’s powers, reveals how deeply the artist identified with peoples’ sufferings. This exhibit focuses on Rouault as printmaker, as it was especially in his graphic work that his religious vision took shape. The exhibit includes eighteen pieces from the “Miserere” series, five from “Fleurs du Mal I,” several colored pieces from “The Passion and Fleurs du Mal III,” along with two signed works and several other prints. The exhibit will be on display Feb. 18 – May 15, 2015. Gallery hours:  Tues. – Fri., 10 a.m.-4 p.m.; Sunday Services 8:30 & 10:55 a.m. or by appointment. An Art Talk in March will be announced soon;  for more information call 859-245-1318.

    3. Lecture on Georges Rouault by Linda Stratford, Ph.D.
      12:30 pm – 2:00 pm

      “Georges Rouault (1871-1958) was one of the few modern artists whose work was clearly religious,” says Bill Dyrness, Professor of Theology and Culture in Los Angeles. “But though he was a life-long Roman Catholic, his work was anything but Christian in the traditional sense. Too much of it seemed overly gloomy and depressing. Indeed for most of his life the Church resisted the darkness of his work—not until the end of his life did he receive a church commission. But the graphic art in this exhibition, done at the height of the artist’s powers, shows how deeply the artist identified with peoples’ sufferings and, indeed, saw within this darkness the salvation that Christ brought. Dr. Linda Stratford, Professor of Art History at Asbury University, will engage us to learn more about the artist, Georges Rouault, and examine the connection of art and Christian faith in his works. Dr. Linda Stratford received her Ph.D. from the State University of New York, Stony Brook with emphasis on Art and Society.  Her recent book ReVisioning: Critical Methods of Seeing Christianity in the History of Art explores art and Christian faith in well-known works of art.

      7:00 pm – 11:00 pm

      Now in its third year, Rockin’ Round the World is an annual event designed to support the programs of Kentucky Refugee Ministries in Lexington. Last year in Lexington we welcomed more than 300 individuals from all over the world– from Iraq and the Democratic Republic of Congo to Afghanistan, Bhutan, and Cuba. Support from the community is essential as we help these families and individuals begin their new lives and work toward self-sufficiency. The funds raised at Rockin’ Round the World help KRM maintain the highest quality of services for refugees in our community. You can help support refugees while enjoying a night of international celebration! Tickets include barbecue dinner and drinks. Programming includes musical performances by the Refugee Children’s Choir, Abraham Mwinda, and Boogie G & the Titanics. There will be a silent auction and a “chairity” auction of chairs painted by local artists and members of Lexington’s refugee communities.

    1. ART EXHIBIT: “Seeing Christ in the Darkness: Georges Rouault as Graphic Artist” at Apostles Anglican Church
      8:30 am – 12:30 pm

      Georges Rouault (1871-1958) was one of the few modern artists whose work was clearly religious, according to Bill Dyrness, Professor of Theology and Culture in Los Angeles. But even though Roault was a life-long Roman Catholic, his work was resisted by the church for much of life, due its dark nature. The graphic art in this exhibition, which was created at the height of the artist’s powers, reveals how deeply the artist identified with peoples’ sufferings. This exhibit focuses on Rouault as printmaker, as it was especially in his graphic work that his religious vision took shape. The exhibit includes eighteen pieces from the “Miserere” series, five from “Fleurs du Mal I,” several colored pieces from “The Passion and Fleurs du Mal III,” along with two signed works and several other prints. The exhibit will be on display Feb. 18 – May 15, 2015. Gallery hours:  Tues. – Fri., 10 a.m.-4 p.m.; Sunday Services 8:30 & 10:55 a.m. or by appointment. An Art Talk in March will be announced soon;  for more information call 859-245-1318.
