Kentucky Wesleyan College is hosting ‘A Women’s Perspective: In Celebration of Women Artists’ from February 6 – March 10, at the Ralph Center Gallery of Fine Arts on campus at the corner of College Drive and South Griffith Avenue.

The touring exhibition of artwork by ten western Kentucky women artists prominently features artworks by Professor Heather Logsdon, director of the Wesleyan Art Program, and Enid Roach, Wesleyan art instructor. 

The exhibit includes more than fifty works in a variety of media, and began in November at the Mellwood Art and Event Center in Louisville, then traveled to Bardstown’s Gallery on the Square before coming home to Owensboro.

The women artists are not only creating and exhibiting art today, but have contributed to the future of art in their current or former roles as administrators, professors and instructors at Wesleyan College (Heather Logsdon and Enid Roach), Brescia University (Rebecca Hamlin Green), Owensboro Community and Technical College (Lou O’Leary), Western Kentucky University (Dr. Miwon Choe, Frederica Diane Huff and Enid Roach), and VSA KY, the State Organization on Arts and Disability (Delaire Rowe).

‘A Women’s Perspective: In Celebration of Women Artists’ seeks to share a perspective of the world through the eyes of a community of Kentucky women artists.

The exhibit is free and open to the public, and gallery hours are Monday-Friday from 8 a.m.- 6 p.m.

The Ralph Gallery of Fine Arts will host a Closing Reception with an opportunity for the public to meet the artists on Friday, March 10, from 6 – 8 p.m.
