Reception:
Venn Diagram
Intersecting circles
Overlapping ideas
Shape and color

Paintings by Blake Snyder Eames
Prints by Elizabeth Foley

Featuring paintings by Blake Snyder Eames and prints by Elizabeth Foley. For this exhibit the artists wanted to exhibit their work side by side and create a dialogue between the shapes and color. While the work was created in their individual studios using different methods, there are commonalities, or elements of overlap, as in a Venn Diagram. More information HERE.

In their art Blake Snyder Eames and Elizabeth Foley use color to achieve a sense of happiness. Compositionally, each explores shape (circles), color, and pattern. Blake paints and Elizabeth prints. Blake’s style is pop art infused and art deco inspired, resulting in vibrant patterns that inspire the senses and soothe the mind’s desire for structure. Elizabeth’s style is abstract, creating a vibrant dialogue between shape, color, and pattern that both delight and challenge. Both push their mediums to achieve a contemplative space for the viewer.

For this exhibit the artists wanted to exhibit their work side by side and create a dialogue between the shapes and color. Each brought a body of work to the gallery and then arranged it so as to have a conversation among the pieces. While the work was created in their individual studios using different methods, there are commonalities, or elements of overlap, as in a Venn Diagram.

After years of admiring each other’s work, Blake and Elizabeth met in 2016. As well as having common goals for their art, they realized how much their lives overlapped, too. And, their passion for color has kept the conversation going.

Blake Snyder Eames is a professional artist who has exhibited her work in multiple venues for more than 20 years. Her paintings, design, murals and furniture pieces can be found in homes, businesses, and collections across the country. Well known for her bold, geometric paintings, Eames is also the owner of Blake Eames Design, an independent enterprise specializing in commercial and residential interior design and furniture redesign. Eames is a lifelong resident of Lexington, Kentucky, where she lives with her musician husband, Willie Eames, and their two children in a century-old restored house downtown.

Elizabeth Foley is a printmaker living in Louisville, Kentucky. She received a BFA in graphic design from Washington University and an MFA in printmaking and M.Ed from Ohio University. She has exhibited work nationally for over fifteen years and has art on view at 21c Museum Hotel Lexington, UK Chandler Medical Center, May Department Stores, and Kentucky One Healthcare Network. She is a founding member of the Bluegrass Printmakers’ Cooperative and was Executive Director for ten years. After twenty years teaching middle and high school art, she is pursuing art full-time.

High adventure meets history when you board Rockin’ Thunder’s new 20-passenger jet boat for a Kentucky River History and Nature Tour. Enjoy expert narration by exceptional guides conducting memorable and entertaining tours of the family’s opulent late 18th century city house and rustic 19th Century country estate.

First, meet at Liberty Hall, the 1796 home of Kentucky’s first US Senator, John Brown. You’ll learn about early Kentucky life and the Brown family’s connection to the river. A light breakfast includes our exclusive Liberty Hall Tea and local Bourbon Barrel Coffee from Kentucky Knows and breakfast breads.

After a short van ride to the Kentucky River View Park, you’ll board the jet boat and leave Frankfort behind. Your Captains, Paul and Jane will delight you with river stories and lore, as well as pointing out important landmarks. Along the way you will lock through two dams built in 1838 and perhaps spot Bald Eagles and more Kentucky wildlife.

Your down-river trip ends at Blue Wing, the Brown family’s 1850 peach plantation and summer retreat near Gratz, now lovingly restored by Doug and Kathleen Martin. While there you’ll enjoy a locally catered lunch and live music. Good food, great scenery, history and fun!

This special tour is a fundraising partnership with Rockin’ Thunder and Blue Wing Landing. Tickets for this charity fundraiser are $250 with $100 of that fully tax deductible as a donation to Liberty Hall Historic Site. For information on tax deductions, please call (502) 227-2560.
