2019 promises to be a banner year for UnderMain! Our goal to produce insightful writing about local and regional art and artists just got a huge boost. UnderMain has been awarded a grant by the Great Meadows Foundation to produce a year-long series of in-depth essay profiles of the works of twelve Kentucky artists. The grant also sustains our reviews of exhibitions.

As a companion to the written work and supported by Great Meadows, UnderMain will present in March Critical Mass III at The Carnegie in Covington, Kentucky, the latest in our series of conversations about contemporary art, artists, and art writing. Watch for more upcoming details about the date for this event and the participants in, what promises to be, a lively conversation!
