'Passages of Simplicity' Exhibit Opens Thursday
By West Kentucky Star Staff
PADUCAH, KY - West Kentucky Community and Technical College's Paducah School of Art and Design (PSAD) will host an art exhibit entitled Passages of Simplicity starting March 1, featuring fiber art and ceramics by Paducah artist Helene Davis.

A free reception will kick off the exhibition on Thursday from 5 - 7 pm in the Bill Ford Gallery at PSAD's 2D and Graphic Design Building at 905 Harrison Street.

PSAD Director Paul Aho said it's a pleasure to have the opportunity to recognize Helene's work in fibers and to present her ceramics to new audiences.

"With the opening of our fiber arts studio this past year, PSAD has embraced contemporary practices in the field," said Aho. "This exhibition showcases the work of Helene Davis, a leading artist in our community, known for her inventive dyeing techniques and their application in her elegant fine art wall quilts, but less well known for her work in clay."

Paducah artist Lily Liu assisted in selecting the works on display, which as the exhibition's title suggests, illustrates a transition from complexity to deceptively simpler works in both fibers and clay.

A student exhibition will also be on display during the Passages to Simplicity exhibition. In continuing PSAD's Bright Futures exhibitions to showcase the work of high school students from throughout the region, Bright Futures 3 is an exhibition of students' works from Paducah Tilghman High School under instruction of local art teacher John Romang.

Both exhibitions will remain on display in the Bill Ford Gallery through April 11.
