The Kentucky arts community lost two of its most iconic artists over the past few weeks. James Archambeault's photographic images captured the incredible natural beauty of the Kentucky landscape. He died under hospice care in South Carolina. Famed glass artist and Centre College faculty member, Stephen Rolfe Powell, died unexpectedly on March 16th. His work is found in public and private collections.
Critical Mass III at The Carngie in Covington on March 16th, was a great success. Special thanks to Matt Distell at The Carnegie for helping organize, host, and moderate the event. Thanks to the panelists and presenting artists for provocative dialogue and illuminating presentations. And thanks to the good crowd for showing up on a Saturday. Look for CMIV next year at around this time of year.
UnderMain is now featured on regular segments of WEKU's Eastern Standard, hosted by our own Tom Martin. Broadcast on Thursdays at 11AM and rebroadcast at 7PM on Thursdays and Sundays at 6PM.

Look for upcoming pieces about the Outside The Spotlight jazz series.
