A touchable art experience
“Tactile Expressions in Wool and Wax” by Jan Durham
 
Evening LandsacpeM S Rezny Studio/Gallery is pleased to present Jan Durham’s first solo exhibit “Tactile Expressions in Wool and Wax”.

Adapting to the change of gradually losing her eyesight mixed media artist, Jan Durham, is attracted to the tactile components of working with wool and wax. She has created artwork that has both a tactile and visual appeal.

In learning what it means to be visually impaired she has a heightened sense of how difficult it is for the blind to participate in visual art events. In this exhibit, we all are encouraged to touch the art. 

Ms. Durham finds that both wool and wax are very tactile to work with but in different ways. “Wool has that soft and cuddly quality that makes you want to pet it like your favorite animal. Wax, once dry, has a cool smooth feeling. Both are wonderful to feel, touch and manipulate… Both come in touch with my emotional side in different yet softly satisfying ways and each has a unique olfactory soothing sensation.”

Inspired by nature, Ms. Durham’s artwork has a strong sense of color and pattern. “The decline of my vision has brought on a heightened sense of patterns. I see the touch of the sun on water and the shadow of a leaf in a way that I had not noticed before…”

Each of her creations are filled with emotion. By seeing, sensing and touching the artwork her desire is that you will share in some of the Wanderingssame emotions.

On September 3rd from 11-3pm Jan Durham will demonstrate the felting process. Two workshops are also planned where participants can create their own felted art; September 10th “Two dimensional Felting and September 24th “Three Dimensional Felting”. Call or write for additional information.

Radio Eye listeners and supporters can also meet the artist September 12th and 22nd from 2-4 PM in the gallery. 

Gallery Hours are Tuesday-Friday 11am-4pm, Saturday 1-3 and by appointment. Anyone needing assistance can call the studio at 859-252-4647.

Exhibit Dates:  August 30th – September 30th, 2016

Artist Reception: September 16th, 5-8pm in conjunction with LexArts Gallery Hop


The studio is located in Lexington’s Distillery District at 903 Manchester Street, Suite 170, Lexington, KY  40508.
TIME TO STOP ELDER ABUSE
An update from Outreach Committee member Marlene James

 
 
The 2016 Annual Elder Abuse Prevention Conference was held this year on July 8th at BCTC. Lucy and I attended to represent Radio Eye and learn about the topic.
 
It was a very informative day for a worthwhile cause.
 
Dr. Gregory Jicha, Professor of Neurology, Sanders-Brown Center on Aging was the keynote speaker. His presentation was filled with interesting information about how to understand cognitive impairment – the four main types, as well as case studies that were discussed by the group on whether they were elder abuse or not.
 
Gerina Wethers and Lori Farris, of the Attorney General’s Office, presented information on the popular scams being seen in their office such as fake jury duty calls, fake IRS calls, fake Social Security, the “your computer is locked” scam, and a government grant scam, as well as getting promised refunds/monies on iTunes cards or prepaid Visa or Green Dot cards.
 
Dondra Meredith, Cabinet of Health and Family Services, revealed the new Caregiver Misconduct Registry, so individuals can research their health care provider. Diane Fleet, Greenhouse 17 Domestic Violence Abuse Program, presented the latest figures on abuse in later years.
 
Last of all, Det. Chris Russell, Lexington Police Department, Special Victims Unit, revealed to us how to recognize, as well as how to report, elder abuse.
 
We’re glad we went this year, and plan to go back next year. If you’re interested in more information on the topic, go to

Reading Glasses
 
Occasionally we have volunteers who forget their reading glasses, drive all the way over here, and then can’t read.  Thanks to everyone who donated unused reading glasses to Radio Eye to help your fellow volunteers in a pinch! 

We have a good selection of strengths and any glasses we were unable to use were donated to the Lions club.  If anyone has any glasses – any kind – that they want to donate to the Lions club, you are more than welcome to bring them to the studio.
Thank you to our recent donors!*
