Garner Narrative welcomes Laurie Fader for her first solo show with the gallery, Odysseys, in which Fader paints through fraught political and personal territory with a Vestal Virgin as a guide.
Fader has been the recipient of many honors and awards, including a Pollock-Krasner Award, an Adolph and Esther Gottlieb Emergency Assistance Grant, and the Helen W. Winternitz Award for excellence in painting from Yale University. She was recently awarded a Great Meadows Foundation Award to be a Visiting Scholar at The American Academy in Rome. She has attended other residencies in France, Haiti, Hungary, and Italy. Fader lived in New York City for 25 years where she taught at Pratt Institute, then lived in Baltimore where she taught at the Maryland Institute College of Art. She came to Louisville in 2011 to launch The Kentucky School of Art (now KyCAD), where she was Chair of Academic Affairs and Associate Professor. She is now a full-time practicing artist.
