JCC Patio Gallery Serves an Artists’ Breakfast Group Show, February 24-April 2
LOUISVILLE, KY (Feb. 12, 2013) – Modeled after the Algonquin Round Table in New York City, Louisville artists have been meeting for discussion and exploration over breakfast for the past 18 years/ Now, the JCC Patio Gallery is proud to present Artists’ Breakfast Group Show, February 24-April 2 with an opening reception on February 24 from 2-4 p.m.
Twenty-six works of art will be on display from the group which started with four people and has grown to over 40. In the beginning, the group was born out of a need to discuss art and share professional information with other mid-career artists. After gathering for breakfast one Thursday morning, Susan Gorsen, Barbara Pence, Sally LaBaugh and Joyce Garner decided to start the group by inviting another fellow artist to breakfast the next week.
Artists displaying work in the show include: Ann Stewart Anderson, Keith Auerbach, Joe Autry, Catherine Bryant, Jean Distler, Laurie Doctor, Teri Dryden, Linda Erzinger, Sarah Frederick, Susan Gorsen, Bob Gottleib, Rebecca Henderson, Vallorie Henderson, Philip High, Keith Kleespies, Marti Kuehn, Sally LaBaugh, Bette Levy, Mark Needham, Tom Pfannerstill, C.J. Pressma, Paul Reynolds, Chuck Swanson, Kathleen Welin, Suzi Zimmerer and Christy Zurkuhlen.
