An exhibition featuring artists from Kentucky and the seven states which directly border it – Illinois, Indiana, Missouri, Ohio, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia. Geographically, Kentucky is a mixture of the Midwest and the South and historically, Kentucky was one of the “border states” in the Civil War as it was situated on the dividing line between the northern and southern regions of the United States. The exhibit will examine the shared histories and common threads that connect a wide array of creators working within the region.Image: Brian McCutcheon,

Creative Growth: Dan Miller and Judith Scott brings together works by two artists who are closely associated with Oakland’s Creative Growth Art Center: Judith Scott (1943–2005), who worked at the center between 1987 and 2005, and Dan Miller (b.1961), who has now been working at Creative Growth’s studio for more than fifteen years. The Creative Growth Art Center’s mission is to establish an environment that fosters and nurtures the creative process, rooted in the fundamental idea that people with disabilities “can gain strength and fulfillment through the visual arts.”
KMAC will also be collaborating with artists from StudioWorks in Louisville and Visionaries + Voices in Cincinnati.
