Art director brings new image to Tuska Center

By Erin Molwigg
news kykernelcom

The new director of the Tuska
Center for Contemporary Art said
students should expect more inter-
esting and exciting exhibits this year
from the on- campus venue.

Kate Sprengnether, who took
over as director in early September. is
an artist with a master of fine arts de—
gree in ceramics from Syracuse Uni-
versity. Her job responsibilities for
the part»time position include over-
seeing and planning exhibits. contact-
ing artists. developing ideas. hosting
events and installing artwork.

“l _was interested in the position
because of the opportunity that it af-

forded me to focus on bringing con~
temporary an to the university audi»
ence." Sprengnether said.

For the last three years,
Sprengnether served as the visual
arts specialist for the Lexington Art
League. Sprengnether is well con-
nected with the different artists liv~
ing and working in our community.
said Allison Kaiser. executive direc-
tor of the Lexington Art League.

Sprengnether is the former edu~
cation director at the Headley—Whit-
ney museum and an independent cu~
rator. Her experience will be valu-
able to the department. said Ben—
jamin Withers. chair of the UK De-
partment of Art.

“I think Kate will use her

knowledge of art to attract a higher
caliber of shows and at the same
time to help us bring in new audi-
ences.“ Withers said.

The Tuska Center for Contem—
porary Art was created in the mid-
1990s and the Center is dedicated to
introducing contemporary art to
both the student and Lexington
communities Withers said.

Since 2005 Anna Brzyski. an as-
sistant professor of art history at
UK. served as director of the Tuska
Center. Before Brzyski. there was
not a lot of direction or continuity in
the program. Withers said. and the
position was held by a series of one
year appointments. However. Brzys—
ki's threeayear term ended this year.

Withers said he hopes that the
job of director will someday evolve
into a full—time position because of
an increasing interest in provoca-
tive. cutting—edge contemporary art.
Sprengnether said one thing she can
contribute is her full attention to the

"In recent years. the past direc-
tor of the Tuska Center was one of
the an history professors. So. as
such. her attention was kind of di—
vided." Sprengnether said. “1 have
the highest respect for her. but be—
cause l‘m not pan of the depart—
ment. 1 can offer something new.
iThe Tuska Center) is my primary
focus. I‘m not teaching on the side
or anything."

Sprengnether said her goals for
the center include maintaining the
high quality of shows. bringing in
more exciting and interesting ex~
hibits and raising the visibility of
the gallery throughout the region.

“Kate will work very hard to do
the absolute best thing that she can
do for the gallery. sometimes at the
sacrifice of herself and her own per-
sonal time." Kaiser said. “She'll
work very hard to realize the mission
of the gallery for the university.“

As for now. Sprengnether said
she is focusing on getting organized
and settling into the job before plan-
ning the exhibit schedule for the
2009le season.

Donnie Keathley grew up
seeing stars. As a kid. he said he
watched “Apollo 13" at least 30

“I‘ve always been wrapped
up in space flight. mainly the en-
gineering side of it. ever since 1
was a kid." said Keathley. an
electrical engineering senior.

Now. his fascination with
space flight is paying off as
Keathley was awarded a
$10000 scholarship from the
Astronaut Scholarship Founda-
tion. an award given to only 19
students nationwide.

The scholarship will be pre—
sented by Edgar Mitchell.
Mitchell is one of 12 men to
have walked on the moon. He
was assigned to Apollo 14 as a
Lunar Module Pilot and on Feb.
5. 1971. he and Alan Shepard
landed their lunar module on
the moon.

“lt‘s definitely an honor and
a privilege." Keathley said. “It‘s
a once in a lifetime opportunity
to meet Dr. Mitchell. not even
considering the monetary as-
pects of the award.“

“To get an award from an
Apollo 14 astronaut is absolute—
ly phenomenal."

According to the ASF Web
site. faculty members in their
department must nominate
scholarship candidates. 'l‘wo
candidates per school are cho-v
sen and reviewed by the ASF
scholarship committee before
picking one recipient from each

“lt‘s a big honor. especially
on the UK level. to say they se—
lected me to try to represent UK
for the scholarship." Keathley

The ASF is a nonprofit or—
ganization formed in l984. The
scholarships are meant to main-
tain world leadership by the
US. in various fields of science
and technology.

Keathley said all the money
from the scholarship will go to-
ward school and eventually a ca—
reer in research. His presidential
scholarship ran out this year. so
the money will be going toward
this semester's tuition.

Todd Hastings. an assistant
professor in the electrical and
computer engineering depart—
ment. has worked with Keath-
ley in a research lab for the past
two years. Since Keathley has
joined the lab. Hastings said he
has accelerated their research
and brought new insights to
their program.

Two weeks ago Nathan Morris

He went from being an unsigned

being an unsigned pop singer work-
ing at Starbucks whose song is in ro»

coffee shops across the nation.

Ten months ago. Morris' second
CD and first full-length album. “A
Gentleman‘s Closure.“ had just been
released. He was living in Nashville.
Tenn., working as a Starbucks barista
to make ends meet between gigs at
local venues. and he was gradually

plan. He traded in Nashville. a town
that is so saturated with music that it

Morris said he went against the
grain and left Nashville to pursue a
more grassroots method to get his
music out to a larger audience. With
the help of lriends and family. and a
small nudge from Web sites My-
Space and Facebook. Moms said he
hoped to generate whispers about his
music on a basic level.

"I didn‘t have many ties in
Nashville. Other artists are going to
be your friends. but they aren‘t going
to buy your records." he said. “Peo-
ple in Lexmgton could hear the mu»
sic and tell a friend in Ohio. In
Nashville. you spend more time
building relationships and not with
the individuals who will take the
time to purchase your music."

In Lexington. Morris found him

Eventually. the best com—

MTV's “Total Request

At first. this seemed like
an interesting idea. but the
more I thought about it I
found myself starting to won—
der if games like “Rock
Band“ and “Guitar Hero"
could actually be hurting mu»
sic more than helping.

When music games first
made their way onto the
scene. I thought the whole
concept would help spread
interest in music and could
perhaps encourage people to
actually pick up a real instru~








ment. We could possibly
have many more musicians
in the world. which could
evolve into new ideas and
bring us some great music.
Now that the games have
been around for awhile. I
have not met one person who
has told me that the game in-
spired them to start making
actual music.

This thought caused me
to reminisce about my own
childhood. 1 can vividly re-
member being 10 or 11 and
playing air guitar to my fa-
vorite bands while jumping
around my room like some
son of crazed animal. Be-
cause of my excitement for
the music. I was driven to
take up playing guitar so that
l could jam along with my
musical heroes.

Now that kids can son of
get those feelings from play»
ing video games. it may be
enough to fill their musical
voids and cause them to new
er even pick up an instru»
ment. In theory. the game
could cause the world to
have fewer musicians and
>|Usl more kids who play
video games. Could the game
be an angel of Death for the
media it promotes‘.’ Probably
not. but it‘s something to
ponder upon.
