If you follow Louisville Visual Arts, you may have seen Shawn Wade’s takeover of LVA’s social media for their #TakeoverTuesday last week. But did you know Shawn’s also a recent addition to the Mellwood artist community?
Perhaps you’ve stopped by our gallery recently or saw us promoting the current show, “Nature vs Man Made,” which features work by a father and son pair of photographers, Anil and Aravind Vinayakan. While Anil’s a healthcare professional by trade, he’s a lifelong artist at heart; not only as a photographer, but as a painter with a studio here at Mellwood too.
It could be argued that the key to success is adaptability. Sometimes we set out to do something and see it’s not a good fit. Other times we’re forced to change plans by external forces. And occasionally circumstances changes such that something we had initially given up on can now be pursued. For Nathan from Fusion Photography, this has been his journey as a photographer.
