The Little/Gaines Artist Series is sponsored by the Lucille C. Little Fine Arts Library and the Gaines Center for the Humanities. It showcases Kentucky artists collaborating on a unifying principle or theme.
The exhibit entitled “Collaborate,” showcases “Kentucky artists working collaboratively around a unifying principle or theme.” The exhibit features collaborative work by eight artists as well as individual pieces by all of them. Three artists, Marco Logsdon, Melissa Hall, and Kathleen O’Brien, were on hand to explain their working methods and elaborate on the outcomes. There was an enthusiastic discussion after her presentation, with the audience and artists all participating.
For several years the Little Library has been collecting Mary’s handmade books featuring photography and the Little Fine Arts Library is currently exhibits a display of Mary’s artists’ books (pictures attached). Visitors to the Little Library can see five of her photographic works that depict a clarinet, kettle drum, viola, and trumpet.
