Tim Faulkner http://wfpl.org en Inside Tim Faulkner's New Portland Arts Complex http://wfpl.org/post/inside-tim-faulkners-new-portland-arts-complex <p>Many of Louisville's art galleries are intimate spaces. They're re-purposed storefronts, hosting carefully curated&nbsp;solo or invitational small group shows that boom on opening nights and quietly go about their business with collectors and aficionados the rest of the month. But Tim Faulkner and his gallery director Margaret Archambault have always had a more raucous vibe going, first on East Market and <a href="http://wfpl.org/post/butchertown-loses-artists-gallery-and-theater-move-west">then in Butchertown</a>, where their bursting-at-the-seams Tim Faulkner Gallery moved in 2012.</p> Mon, 26 May 2014 11:00:00 +0000 Erin Keane 9409 at http://wfpl.org Inside Tim Faulkner's New Portland Arts Complex Byline | FBI Looks at Metro Gov't; Legislature Mulls Felon Voting Rights; Corvette Museum Sinkhole http://wfpl.org/post/byline-fbi-looks-metro-govt-legislature-mulls-felon-voting-rights-corvette-museum-sinkhole <p><object height="81" width="100%"><param name="movie" value="https://player.soundcloud.com/player.swf?url=https%3A//api.soundcloud.com/tracks/136083688&amp;color=205075&amp;auto_play=false&amp;show_artwork=true&amp;show_playcount=true&amp;show_comments=true" /><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always" /><embed allowscriptaccess="always" height="81" src="https://player.soundcloud.com/player.swf?url=https%3A//api.soundcloud.com/tracks/136083688&amp;color=205075&amp;auto_play=false&amp;show_artwork=true&amp;show_playcount=true&amp;show_comments=true" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wi Sat, 22 Feb 2014 00:53:10 +0000 Laura Ellis 8670 at http://wfpl.org Byline | FBI Looks at Metro Gov't; Legislature Mulls Felon Voting Rights; Corvette Museum Sinkhole Butchertown Loses Artists as Gallery and Theater Move West http://wfpl.org/post/butchertown-loses-artists-gallery-and-theater-move-west <p>Right on the heels of gallery owner / art scene impresario Tim Faulkner's announcement that his eponymous gallery and studio spaces will soon move to the Portland neighborhood from its Franklin Street compound, where it moved in 2012 after it outgrew its previous East Market Street digs, <a href="http://www.thealleytheater.org/">The Alley Theater</a> announced it would also leave the Butchertown&nbsp;neighborhood for a new downtown location.&nbsp;<span style="line-height: 1.5;">The Alley has made its home in The Pointe on Washington Street for the last four years.&nbsp;</span></p> Fri, 03 Jan 2014 18:56:02 +0000 Erin Keane 8112 at http://wfpl.org Butchertown Loses Artists as Gallery and Theater Move West Quick and Close to the Bone: Marrow Street Theatre Focuses on Short Plays http://wfpl.org/post/quick-and-close-bone-marrow-street-theatre-focuses-short-plays <p><span style="line-height: 1.5;">The one-act play is having a moment. Once a vital component of American theater, the form thrived as curtain-raisers before three-act productions in a time when audiences expected to spend hours at the theater on an evening out. Its &nbsp;popularity has faded in recent years in favor of ten-minute plays, which abound in Louisville, but following a significant handful of recent local productions, three Louisville theater artists are committed to giving these shorter world premieres a permanent home, too.&nbsp;</span></p> Mon, 09 Sep 2013 19:06:03 +0000 Erin Keane 6769 at http://wfpl.org Quick and Close to the Bone: Marrow Street Theatre Focuses on Short Plays Blooming Where You're Planted: Robot Memory Play Finds Home in Tim Faulkner Building http://wfpl.org/post/blooming-where-youre-planted-robot-memory-play-finds-home-tim-faulkner-building <p>Sometimes beautiful theatre happens in unlikely spaces. When Tim Faulkner Gallery moved from East Market Street to Butchertown last spring, the new digs gave the gallery room to breathe. A whole building on the intimate, tree-lined Franklin Street showcases not only to the many artists Faulkner represents, but also the art parties the gallery has become known for. Tim Faulkner Building also houses studios rented to artists, Matt Anthony's Record Shop, a used bookstore and other small enterprises.
