The Carnegie Center for Art and History presents The Art of Elmer Lucille Allen, Sandra Charles, and Barbara Tyson Mosley, an exhibition of work by three prominent local artists. Artists Elmer Lucille Allen, Sandra Charles, and Barbara Tyson Mosley are three Louisville artists who have formed strong bonds of friendship through their art. They all view art as a way of communicating and sharing everyday experiences in creative form, but each artist has a distinctive way of expressing what stimulates her creativity.

Elmer Lucille Allen creates richly colored cotton and silk shibori wall hangings that reflect her scientific background both in style and process. She is able to translate geometric patterns of triangles, squares, diamonds, and circles masterfully using the serendipitous–and sometimes fickle–Nui, Iajime, and Arashi shibori methods.

Sandra Charles is an interpretive portrait painter using facial expression and bodily gesture to celebrate the strength of African American women. Her paintings capture the self-confidence of individual, everyday people, while simultaneously tying their personal journeys to the larger historical context of African American experience. 

Barbara Tyson Mosley uses the canvas to express the beauty of landscapes and seascapes in abstract form.  Her work vividly reveals changes in light and color as dawn breaks into day and the subtle shift as dusk slips into night. United by the use of color and texture, this exhibition brings together the unique, contemporary, and traditional styles of these artist friends.
