Sandoval Lectures, Exhibits in Louisville

Published: Jan 22, 2013

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Jan. 22, 2013) — At the invitation of University of Louisville's Hite Art Institute and Louisville's Jewish Community Center, Arturo Alonzo Sandoval, Alumni Endowed Professor of Art at the University of Kentucky School of Art and Visual Studies, will give the lecture "Creating a Sense of Space: Between Art and Craft" at 2:30 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 23, at the Chao Auditorium of the Ekstrom Library, on the UofL campus. In conjunction with his lecture, his art is on exhibit through Feb. 20 in the Jewish Community Center Gallery, located at 3600 Dutchmans Lane.

 

Sandoval's lecture and exhibit will highlight his aesthetic using 20th Century materials. With either a sewing machine, a floor loom or hand interlacing techniques, he has incorporated materials such as computer tape, battery cable and microfilm into visually and technically complex pieces of art. The fiber artist's experimental techniques and expressive interpretations have earned him an international reputation.

 

Sandoval’s mixed media art works are featured in numerous collections including the Museum of Modern Art and The Museum of Art and Design in New York. His works have been exhibited extensively regionally and nationally and have included such international showings as the 8th and 14th Biennial of Tapestry in Lausanne, Switzerland, and the Textile Triennial in Lodz, Poland.

 

As a result of his talents, Sandoval has been awarded two National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) Visual Arts Fellowships; NEA supported Visiting Artists Grants; two Kentucky Arts Council Al Smith Visual Arts Fellowship awards; two Al Smith Professional Service Awards; the Kentucky Craft Marketing Honorary Award; the Kentucky Craft Marketing and Kentucky Art and Craft Foundation Inc. Rude Osolnik Craftsman Award; and the 2003 Governor's Award in the Arts Artist award. He is also the recipient of a Kentucky Star Award presented to the artist by the Downtown Lexington Corporation in 2007.

 

The Department of Fine Arts at the University of Louisville was founded in 1937. In 1946, the department was endowed as the Hite Art Institute in recognition of the bequest of Allen R. and Marcia S. Hite. The institute currently has 500 undergraduate and 35 graduate majors in the combined studio and art history areas.

 

Sandoval is an esteemed faculty member of the UK School of Art and Visual Studies at the UK College of Fine Arts. The school is an accredited member of the National Association of Schools of Art and Design and offers undergraduate and graduate degrees in the fields of art studio, art history and art education.
