COLUMBIA, Ky. -- Works by Columbia artist
Ken Page are on display through Feb. 25 at Lindsey Wilson
Columbia artist Ken Page featured with his
sculpture "The Maestro Takes a Walk" His paintings and sculptures
are on display through Feb. 25 in the Lucretia C. Begley Art
The show features paintings and sculptures by the noted
Southcentral Kentucky artist.
Page's works are featured in the Lucretia C. Begley Art Gallery,
which is located in the college's W.W. Slider Humanities
The exhibit is especially meaningful for Page because it allows
him to exhibit his works on the campus where he developed his
skills as an artist.
A graduate of Lindsey Wilson, Page studied under the late Helen
Flatt, a legendary art professor who taught at Lindsey Wilson for
almost 40 years.
Ironically, Page's late mother, Effie, attended Lindsey Wilson
in the 1920s and then later taught Flatt when she was a student at
Page spent his formative years Southcentral Kentucky, and he
continues to draw from that experience. His work featured in the
Begley Gallery presents a familiar scene combining a rural
background with urban living, which gives his sculptures and
paintings a unique edge.
Page has had multiple selected one-person shows, including:
Hansen Gallery in New York City; Closson's Gallery in Cincinnati;
Carnegie Art Center in Covington, Ky.; Swearingen Gallery in
Louisville, Ky.; Northern Kentucky University; College of Mount St.
Joseph in Cincinnati; Lincoln Memorial University in Harrogate,
Tenn.; Xavier University in Cincinnati; Nordheim Art Gallery in
Covington; and Cathedral Basilica Gallery in Covington.
He has also been featured in several selected group shows and
selected corporate collections throughout the region.
In addition to Lindsey Wilson, Page also earned degrees from
Eastern Kentucky University and Northern Kentucky University.
The paintings and sculptures of Ken Page are featured
through Feb. 25 in the Lindsey Wilson College Lucretia C. Begley
