Kent Mansion Gallery Hosts Photo-Biennial
The eleventh Louisville Photo Biennial takes place September 20, 2019 to November 10, 2019 throughout Louisville Metro and its surrounding communities. All photography exhibitions – spanning traditional to contemporary, local to global – are mounted at museums, galleries, universities, and cultural institutions. The Biennial also presents accompanying workshops, public lectures and panel discussions to stimulate learning and reinforce visual literacy. Since photography is the most widespread art form, our goal is to educate via meaningful dialogue to help bridge understanding in our diverse world through this dynamic medium.
St. Paul’s will be one of the southern Indiana sites for the photo-biennial. This is the first show in our newly renamed Kent Mansion Gallery. The show opens September 20- October 24, 2019. Title of Exhibit is Cultivating Creativity and features works by retired art educator, Kevin Schultz, along with some of her former students.
Description of Exhibit: it was a dream of Kevin Rose Schultz to curate an exhibition of award winning photography created over her 17 years of teaching art at New Albany High School. This exhibition brings her dream to fruition showcasing Schultz’s photography with her students’ art. Sale proceeds from student artwork will go to the New Albany Floyd County Art Awards Fund; which provides monetary awards to students for exemplary art in the annual New Albany Floyd County Schools Secondary Art Competition and Exhibition.
Reception and Trolley Hop: The official reception
for the show will be Friday, October 4 from 5:30 – 9:00 pm. There will be a free trolley that will shuttle between all the galleries in New Albany.

Light in the Darkness: A Study of Hope and Healing
The holidays can be a challenging time for those in pain, whether that pain is physical, psychological/emotional, or all of the above. Deaths and suicides tend to spike during holidays as people suffer alone or in groups where they cannot seem to make connections. Where can those who suffer find light? How can they find hope and healing? Your artwork should explore light in darkness, hope and healing, or both ideas together—in whatever way that means to you. It may be very personal or have a broader relevance. You may choose to include the darkness in your work, but also make sure you include in some clear way, the light, hope, and/or healing that leads one out, even if it’s only small part to hang on to—make that small part unmistakable
