Our next Family Fun Day will be taking place on January 14th. Visitors can expect free admission, art making activities, artist demonstrations, docent-led pop-up tours, live music & more! 

This Family Fun Day is inspired by the work featured in our current exhibitions Erasure's Edge, a solo exhibition of work by Noel W. Anderson and Natureish/Nurtureish, a solo exhibition of work by Monica Stewart.

We will have hands-on art making activities led by our Education team, a community art project inspired by one of the works in Natureish/Nurtureish and artist demonstrations led by KMAC artist in residence, Monica Stewart.

Monica Stewart

KMAC is excited to host artist Monica Stewart, who was KMAC's Artist in Residence studio from August 12 - October 31, 2022 this Family Fun Day.  Stewart specializes in paper art and used her residency to make work in the museum that is currently exhibited in her solo show, Natureish/Nurtureish which is on view until January, 22nd,  2022. This residency was funded in part by a grant from South Arts in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts and the Kentucky Arts Council.

Monica Stewart is a Louisville-based artist specializing in cut paper and fiber art. She holds a BFA in painting from Murray State University and an MFA from the University of Louisville, where she currently teaches studio art. Her work demonstrates exemplary technical skill and precision in assembling imaginary scenes of feminine endurance and creativity. Through the use of cut paper and fiber, Stewart’s work takes on an additional dimension of societal critique in which mediums considered “women’s work” are elevated to the level of fine art.

 

Stewart’s work has been exhibited at the Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts (Gatlinburg, TN), the Cressman Center for Visual Art (Louisville, KY), Revelry Gallery (Louisville, KY) and Tim Faulkner Gallery (Louisville, KY). She is a Hadley Creatives alumnus (2019) and was awarded the Emerging Artist Award by Louisville Visual Art in 2019.
