What does it mean to be a woman?
An intern show by Gracie Koesters
August 27th - September 10, 2021
Opening Reception: August 27th, 5:30 - 7:30 PM
Gracie Koesters’ series “What does it mean to be a woman? The thread that connects us all” consists of five fine art pieces that attempt to answer the question, “What does it mean to be a woman?” The series tackles difficult issues such as sexual assault and the period stigma, but also celebrates women, their strength, and their beauty through mixed media art forms including acrylic painting, collaging, and embroidery.
Koesters said, “My hope is that this series will teach you something about womanhood, and encourage you to learn more about it on your own. Women are such strong and powerful individuals that are all too often put down by the men in charge, or, sometimes, even other women. While my series does touch on some pretty serious issues in regards to the treatment of women, my main goal was to celebrate women and their beauty.”
Gracie has joined the staff of Bourne- Schweitzer Gallery. She is a 2021 graduate of Presentation Academy and will be attending the University of Louisville in the Fall of 2021. Gracie began her internship in 2014 while attending St. Mary’s Catholic Academy. Please join us in celebrating her amazing accomplishments.

The Photo Biennial exhibitions – spanning traditional to contemporary, local to global – are mounted at museums, galleries, and cultural institutions. The Biennial also presents accompanying workshops, public lectures and panel discussions to stimulate learning and expand visual literacy. Since photography is the most widespread art form, our goal is to educate via meaningful dialogue and to help bridge understanding in our diverse world through this dynamic medium.
This year, we have all been affected by the extraordinary circumstances of the pandemic. As a result, we will make the exhibits, presentations and activities of the Photo Biennial available virtually, as well as in-person, to the greatest extent possible.
One very important aspect of the Photo Biennial is that almost all of the exhibits and activities may be enjoyed for free, both in-person and virtually. It is very important to our participating artists and organizations that the cultural richness provided by the Louisville Photo Biennial is accessible to everyone.

Knock on Wood 2020
August 15th – November 6th, 2020
137 East Main Street, New Albany, IN
We are excited to be opening a new exhibit, however the opening reception will be affected by Covid-19 precautions and the reception date and format may change. Please subscribe to our newsletter for updates.
Please join us for this exciting exhibit featuring the work of five local wood artists. Paul Schreck, Alan Shrebtienko, Floyd Cornett, and collaborators Clay Colvin and James Michael Kearney.
All five artists live and work in Southern Indiana and are self-taught.
Paul Schreck and his wife are retired health care workers. They moved to a farm in southern Indiana with their children in the 80’s to “homestead”. The material for his exquisitely crafted tables is harvested from his farm. His passion is creating something beautiful from wood that otherwise would be firewood. His furniture pieces include “live edge” and epoxy, and intricately pieced tabletops.
Alan Shrebtienko retired as physics professor after losing his sight. He had always loved wood turning since creating his first piece in high school. He now creates incredibly detailed segmented vessels and bowls. The pieces are created by engineering and gluing hundreds to thousands of pieces of various woods together. The effect is stunning. In 2020 he won top prize in the America Printing House Insights Exhibit.
Floyd Cornett’s creations evolved through his love of art and his profession as an autobody technician. He has always created art, and wood, clay, and metal have now become a passion. Inspired by the availability of barrels tops from the bourbon Industry and local woods, Cornett creates fluid sculptures and commissioned barrel top carvings.
Clay Colvin and James Michael Kearney met through their love of driftwood, anthropology, and local history. Colvin’s business degree and Kearney’s master’s in construction management came together to create the perfect collaboration for their creations. Their works feature masterfully created abstract sculptures and furniture.
The exhibit and reception are free and open to the public. Please join us to meet the artists and enjoy this wonderful exhibit.
We are open by appointment. Masks are required. We are available Monday – Saturday 10:00 am to 5:00. Call to schedule an appointment.
