‘Celebration of Louisville Artists’ @ Kaviar Forge & Gallery

Through Sept. 6

Kaviar Forge & Gallery
1718 Frankfort Ave. • 561-0377

Sharon Matisoff is an artist who paints artists. She gave herself a mission — paint artists of national and international acclaim who live and work in Louisville. Some of the local heavyweights included in “Rites of Passage: A Celebration of Louisville Artists” are painter John Michael Carter, ceramicist Tonya Johnson, and sculptor Ed Hamilton. “I love painting the human face and form because of the complexity and beauty inherent in each sitter,” says Matisoff. “My journey over the past year gave me a deeper insight into how each artist approaches their subject. I had no idea how gratifying it would be as an artist to create the paintings for this show.” The artist’s reception is Friday from 6-9 p.m. during the F.A.T. Trolley Hop. —Jo Anne Triplett
