LEXINGTON, Ky. (Feb. 22, 2017) The College of Design at the University of Kentucky is honored to announce the acceptance of work from several faculty and alumni into the latest exhibition, "Expanding Fields," at the Lexington Art League. The show, which runs through March 26, will open during this month's Fourth Friday from 6-9 p.m. Friday, Feb. 24, at Loudoun House, located at 209 Castlewood Dr.

"Expanding Fields" is an exhibition of art by architects, curated by Cat Wentworth, former director of Institute 193 and a College of Design alumna. The exhibition seeks to broaden the understanding of architecture beyond the conventional notion of building buildings. In recent decades, architecture has found new inspiration and outlets in an ever-widening variety of disciplines, and the boundary between architecture and other disciplines appears more blurred.

Participants from the college’s School of Architecture faculty include: Jordan Hines, Mike McKay, Jerzy Rozenberg, Jason Scroggin, Martin Summers and Liz Swanson. School of Architecture alumni who will also be exhibiting include: Haviland Argo, Rebecca Cox, Joanna Grant, Sarah Heller, Erin Ruhl, Ainsley Wagoner and Jonathan Ware.

This exhibition is not intended to showcase representations of architecture — plan drawings, architectural models or renderings — but instead present works that stand on their own and together serve as a sampling of sensibilities that are unique to the language of architecture.

"Expanding Fields" is free for members of the Lexington Art League and students with a valid student ID and $5 for general admission.

​Founded in 1957, Lexington Art League provides free quality contemporary art programming, including exhibitions, youth education and outreach programs, artists conversations, community tours and more.
