Bones...when someone thinks of bones, they think of the human skeleton. I automatically think of the song my grandmother taught me when I was a little girl; The ankle bone connected to the shin bone, shin bone connected to the knee bone, knee bone connected to the thigh bone, the thigh bone connected to the hip bone and you go all the way up until you connect the neck bone to the head bone. The rest of the song talks about tripping over shoelaces and being a fool.The Bones on exhibit at the Arts Council of Southern Indiana, Pat Harrison Arts Center had nothing to do with the human bones or that song...however I'm sure that Mary; the resident ghost (so the story is told) also sung that song to her children and grandchildren.
The stones of Kimberly Carroll Raber’s carvings are  made of alabaster, soapstone, and Italian alabaster. She considers them, “the bones of the earth. ” Her carvings are, in her own words… my meditation and a metaphor for my life. She says; “Carving stone is:...

World Fest 2011...3 days of dancing, music, foods, arts, crafts and fun from a variety of cultures all in one place. From Hard Rock Cafes Tour Bus, to Louisville's very own talented musicians performing on the steps as you enter World Fest; you could hear and see the Belvedere spark with laughter, applause and smiles of approval as thousands daily enjoyed the festivities.
Driving onto Main and 3rd St., the aroma of the ethnic cuisines coming from the Belvedere and World Fest tantalized the taste buds. I love the gyros, which I get from a certain vendor every year and couldn’t wait to see him to enjoy that delicious treat, which proved to be worth the wait.

Hub caps and Art: when you think of these you normally do not put them together. I ask Chris, a visitor to our beautiful city, who resides in Columbus Ohio and is in town for the World Fest, what is the first thing he thinks of when he hears the word hub caps. He said, "riding down the road and one popping off so you have to go chase it." I found that quite amusing given the story that artist Karen Welch relayed to me about a certain artist hub cap. You can hear that story and see that hubcap for the final week at the Museum of Arts and Crafts.www.kentuckyarts.org
Heartwarming and open are two words to describe the Kentucky Museum of Arts and Crafts, 715 W. Main Street in downtown Louisville. I had the privilege of speaking with several local artists of the “100 Art Inspired Hubcaps” exhibit.  Among those was Louisville native Karen Welch...
