    1. ART EXHIBIT: Elissa Morley’s “Delights: Bathing in Another World” at Apostles Anglican Art Gallery
      May 4 (all-day)

      Elissa Morley, “Delights: Bathing in Another World” @ Apostles Anglican Art Gallery. May 1-July 31

    2. ART EXHIBIT: “The Loves of Aaron Burr: Portraits in Corsetry & Binding”
      10:00 am – 10:00 am

      “The Loves of Aaron Burr,” by artist Camilla Huey resurrects the voices of nine ‘women of letters’ involved in the adventurous life of Aaron Burr — the most notorious of our founding fathers.  Historically, the 18th century woman was viewed as a body without a voice.  By combining the letters, books and ephemera – each bound within a period appropriate corset, rather than bound in a book – the corsets become each woman’s “body” of work.  Huey’s unusual portraits reanimate the voices of these exceptional and forgotten women of the Colonial and Federal period.  This is the first time contemporary art has been integrated into this historic mansion. Members Reception, May 3, 2016 6:00 – 9:00pm May 3 – June 30, 2016 Tuesday – Saturday 10:00am – 4:00pm (last tour starts at 4:00pm) Sunday 1:00 – 4:00pm (last tour starts at 4:00pm)

    3. ART EXHIBIT: R. C. May Photography – PAUL SHAMBROOM: Lost
      10:00 am – 5:00 pm

      In his recent series Lost, Paul Shambroom photographs weathered posters of missing pets, digitally enhancing aspects of the ghostly images. He abstracts the owners’ pleas into snippets of “found” poetry that speak to our deep connection with animals: “She is quite shy and doesn’t answer to her name.” The sense of love and of loss is palpable. Museum Hours: Tue-Thu: 10 am – 5 pm; Fri: 10 am – 8 pm; Sat & Sun: 12 – 5 pm; closed Mondays. image credit: PAUL SHAMBROOM, Daisy, 2013, pigmented inkjet print on paper, courtesy of the artist

    5. BOOK LAUNCH: C.E. Morgan reads and signs, “The Sport of Kings” at The Carnegie Center
      6:00 pm – 8:30 pm

      The Morris Book Shop is excited and honored to host the launch of C.E. Morgan’s new book, The Sport of Kings. Join us at the Carnegie Center for music, refreshments, and a reading from The Sport Kings, by C.E. Morgan (author of All The Living). About the book: Hellsmouth, an indomitable thoroughbred with the blood of Triple Crown winners in her veins, runs for the glory of the Forge family, one of Kentucky’s oldest and most powerful dynasties. Henry Forge has partnered with his daughter, Henrietta, in an endeavor of raw obsession: to breed the next superhorse, the next Secretariat. But when Allmon Shaughnessy, an ambitious young black man, comes to work on their farm after a stint in prison, the violence of the Forges’ history and the exigencies of appetite are brought starkly into view. Entangled by fear, prejudice, and lust, the three tether their personal dreams of glory to the speed and grace of Hellsmouth. A spiraling tale of wealth and poverty, racism and rage, The Sport of Kings is an unflinching portrait of lives cast in shadow by the enduring legacy of slavery. A vital new voice, C. E. Morgan has given life to a tale as mythic and fraught as the South itself―a moral epic for our time. Praise for The Sport of Kings: “With The Sport of Kings, C. E. Morgan has delivered a masterpiece. Rich, deep, and ambitious, this book is, by any standard, a Great American Novel.” ―Philipp Meyer, author of The Son C.E. Morgan studied English and voice at Berea College and holds a master’s in theological studies from Harvard Divinity School. She was named in the 2010 National Book Foundation “5 under 35″ list, and won the 2010 Lannan Literary Fellowship, 2012 United States Artists Fellow award, 2013 Whiting Award, and the 2016 Windham–Campbell Literature Prizes (Fiction). She is the author of All the Living and lives in Kentucky.

    2. ART EXHIBIT: “The Loves of Aaron Burr: Portraits in Corsetry & Binding”
      10:00 am – 10:00 am

      “The Loves of Aaron Burr,” by artist Camilla Huey resurrects the voices of nine ‘women of letters’ involved in the adventurous life of Aaron Burr — the most notorious of our founding fathers.  Historically, the 18th century woman was viewed as a body without a voice.  By combining the letters, books and ephemera – each bound within a period appropriate corset, rather than bound in a book – the corsets become each woman’s “body” of work.  Huey’s unusual portraits reanimate the voices of these exceptional and forgotten women of the Colonial and Federal period.  This is the first time contemporary art has been integrated into this historic mansion. Members Reception, May 3, 2016 6:00 – 9:00pm May 3 – June 30, 2016 Tuesday – Saturday 10:00am – 4:00pm (last tour starts at 4:00pm) Sunday 1:00 – 4:00pm (last tour starts at 4:00pm)

    3. ART EXHIBIT: R. C. May Photography – PAUL SHAMBROOM: Lost
      10:00 am – 5:00 pm

      In his recent series Lost, Paul Shambroom photographs weathered posters of missing pets, digitally enhancing aspects of the ghostly images. He abstracts the owners’ pleas into snippets of “found” poetry that speak to our deep connection with animals: “She is quite shy and doesn’t answer to her name.” The sense of love and of loss is palpable. Museum Hours: Tue-Thu: 10 am – 5 pm; Fri: 10 am – 8 pm; Sat & Sun: 12 – 5 pm; closed Mondays. image credit: PAUL SHAMBROOM, Daisy, 2013, pigmented inkjet print on paper, courtesy of the artist

      6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

      Workshop for Inventors & Entrepreneurs hosted by Don West and Raj Shah In our Workshop, everyone gets an opportunity to talk about their invention, startup, product or business, and talk about where you are and/or where you’re stuck. Plus we all work under a confidentiality agreement, which means what we talk about at the Inventors Workshop stays at the Inventors Workshop. And you don’t just get one person’s input, you get a whole room of people with varying expertise, experience, and angles of approach that you may not have seen otherwise.  Think of it as a brain-storming session on steroids.
