Mythical Creatures: New Exhibition by Amy Wiedl and Tremain Ferrar

We have a new exhibition on display at Block Party featuring Kentucky artists Amy Wiedl and Tremain Ferrar. This exhibition combines the artists’ two unique styles. Wiedl’s work is part of a series called ‘Chimera Types,’ which is an exploration of the animal kingdom through a mythical lens. Her work includes different aspects of animals grouped together into one being to create unique combinations. Ferrar’s work is part of a series called ‘Solipsism’ that combines fairy tale heroines with both narrative and theatrical spectacle creating unique animal-human hybrids. Both artists pay great attention to detail in their work that depicts their talent for illustration.

Tremain Ferrar ibex for webAbout Tremain: Originally from the small town of Campbellsville, KY, Tremain Farrar decided to pursue art as a career and attended the University of Louisville. She graduated in 2010 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 2-D Studio. Continuing her artistic education, she moved to Savannah and graduated from Savannah College of Art and Design in 2014 with a Master of Fine Arts degree in Illustration. In addition to creating fine art, Tremain is a full time graphic designer and is currently exploring videography as new means of artistic expression.

About Amy: I studied fine art at the University of Louisville with a focus in drawing. I am an active artist in the community and have displayed work in many group shows in and around Louisville. Currently, I reside, work, and play in this lovely city and my work is often inspired by all the creative and diverse people I meet here. My drawings depict the combination of animals, humans, and the inanimate. I enjoy the challenge of creating unique images through the marriage of seemingly mundane subjects. All Originals are hand drawn, inked and painted on wood panel, with much care and attention paid to detail.
