The weather’s been odd lately in Louisville, but it hasn’t stopped me from running around, chatting up artists. Over the weekend I caught up with an old friend of mine, Neil Mulac. We discussed acting, Carl Jung, Indigo children, and creative obstacles. Neil is an actor of both film and theatre, who also writes scripts, screenplays, and poetry. Above is a sample of some of his film work titled ‘Mae Waits’ ( a film inspired by the ‘Mumblecore’ movement ). Currently, he is in the midst of collaborating on a short film along with planning some plays for the near future.
Hey there listeners. Just thought I’d stop in and update you on what to expect in the coming weeks. I’ve got a pretty full schedule as far as interviews are concerned this week. I’m slated to talk to local actor and writer Neil Mulac, Samuel Herring of the band Future Islands from Baltimore, Mark Kramer aka his music project Tender Mercy, as well as female music duo Twin Limb (brand new to the scene, but tackling it like champs.) So, yeah, this is what you got to look forward to…be excited! I know I am.
It’s the middle of the week once again listeners. The weekend is almost here. It definitely should be a pretty interesting one in Louisville, due to the Open Studio Weekend hosted by LVAA. To learn more about this first time event, visit louisvillevisualart.org. Speaking of first time events, only a few more days till Glances: an evening of short films and performances.

Without further delay, today’s episode. Today’s post is a discussion I had with the gallery director of Open, Mark James. Open is a relatively new space to the Louisville Metro. Besides housing four resident artists, the gallery also offers weekly events, workshops, and open mic nights. Mark and I discuss the beginnings of the gallery, his views on art and artists, and how creative expression is impacted by society & vice versa.
If you keep up with the blog, you’ll know that my guests today are Erin Clark and Katie Scott. Both of these talented ladies are Governor’s School for the Arts alumni who dance and choreograph for many different groups, as well as their own creative ventures. Below are some links to those groups.
