ABOUT THE GALLERY

The JCM Gallery is a commercial gallery
operating since 2004 in the lobby of
Expree Credit Union in Frankfort,
Kentucky, curated by Larry W. Moore &
Stephanie Potter for Broadstone Media.

The gallery provides an opportunity to
see and purchase original art in a
variety of mediums created by local
and regional artists, both emerging
and established.

In addition to the current show, we
carry works on consignment by many of
our artists.

For information on purchasing art or
exhibiting in the gallery, contact us at

OUR GALLERY MISSION

"In our experience as gallery curators, we
have found that the introduction of the right
work of art into a person's home or life can,
and has, added immeasurably to the quality of
some of our patron’s lives. Even those simply
passing by and viewing have told us how much
they appreciate our shows.

It is part of our gallery philosophy that art is
incomplete until it is seen and appreciated.  
The role of Broadstone Gallery is to find the
artists, display their works, and give those
who might appreciate their art a chance to
see it.

To us, art represents not only beauty, but
hope and optimism. Especially in these
distressed times, art is an important reminder
that these are still part of the human spirit.  
We hope to be able to continue to foster it for
a long time to come.

Thanks to our artists, our patrons and
especially to our gracious hosts at [Expree]
(then KECU) for their support."

Jane Chancellor Moore (1951-2010)
Jane Chancellor Moore was the curator of
Broadstone Gallery from its opening until her
untimely death in the spring of 2010, at which
time Expree renamed the gallery in her honor.
Jane is pictured in the photo above, in the
center in the background. That was
appropriate, for while she was very much the
center of everything we did at Broadstone,
she also preferred to remain in the
background. For more photos and information

Melanie Sunbeam Smith
It was a bittersweet time installing this show. A little sad, because it is the last in our
series of invitational group shows celebrating 15 years of our gallery, bringing back
the artists who have exhibited with us over those years. But not too sad, because the
art in this show is guaranteed to make you happy. I've called it "Mixed Media &
Miscellany" because it consists of all of the art that did not fall neatly into the
categories of painting, photography, and printmaking that we featured in the
preceding shows. And what a wide range of art that makes for: drawing, fiber,
pottery, construction, collage, and yes, mixed media. What I love best about this
show is that it illustrates how anything can be the basis for creativity. In the minds
and hands of artists, any material, any subject, can be transmuted into the magic
that is art.

The artist who taught me this most compellingly was the late Melanie Sunbeam Smith,
who is represented in this show by drawing, weaving, and collage. From a young age
she suffered from rheumatoid arthritis, and over the years her condition gradually
diminished her dexterity. But at no point did she stop making art - she simply moved
from one medium and material to another, using whatever abilities she had at the
moment to allow art to flow through her into the world. She was never confined to
any single definition of what art could be - it was whatever she, as an artist, created.

While the other artists in this show may work under less extreme circumstances, in all
cases they are creating work that extends the boundaries of what art can be. And
that is what artists should do, and what art should be - always new, always
challenging, always - magic.

My thanks to all of the artists in this show, in all of our preceding anniversary shows,
and all the others who have shared their work with us over the years. It has been my
privilege to get to know you, and to exhibit your art in our gallery. I look forward to
many more years of working with you and the artists yet to come.
