LEXINGTON, Ky.—Transylvania’s Morlan Gallery ends the 2008-09 year with Lost and Found, an exhibition of work by three senior art majors. The work of Kaci Clay, David Kenton Kring and Corey Washburn opens May 12 and runs through May 19. A reception honoring the artists will be Thursday, May 14, from 6-8 p.m., with special musical guests “The Tillers.” The exhibit and reception are free and open to the public. Gallery hours are Monday-Friday, noon to 5 p.m.

Clay presents a variety of her most critical work, including ceramics, paintings, drawings and sculptures. Clay's work gives a nod to the humorous, while addressing issues of contemporary importance.

Kring’s incarcerated ceramic figures soar through Morlan Gallery, buoyantly carrying the hope and the heaviness of Southern culture. Strongly influenced by Southern music, Kring says his hand-built and painted figures are created with surfaces that are extremely worked; often built up in layers, then stripped away and built back up again.

Washburn’s room-sized installation is a mystery waiting to be solved. Cluttered with ephemera, furniture and the melancholy, compulsion leads to discovery in a room with a story.
