IMPORTANT NOTICE
In response to the need to reduce non-essential public activities during the
Covid-19 pandemic, and in cooperation with our hosts at Expree CU who are
limiting lobby access, the JCM Gallery will be
CLOSED to walk-in visitors until
further notice.  We have rescheduled our spring and summer exhibitions and
will continue to monitor public health information while we decide when we
can safely reopen. We will be offering virtual gallery exhibitions on this site in
the interim, so please visit this page often for the latest shows and news.
Thank you for your support.  Stay safe, stay well, stay in!

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 business office:

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
about Jane, please
click here to visit our
memorial page.
One consequence of the Covid-19 pandemic has been the need for us to reschedule
shows that were planned for this spring and summer, beginning with an exhibition of
paintings by Shelby County, Kentucky artist Debra Kay Guess that would have been up
in the gallery now.  Fortunately Debra will be back with us in person in 2021, and
meanwhile we can offer this preview of her work.

As it happens, this show illustrates a far worse consequence of the virus than a
temporary closure. All of us are responding to the pandemic and related disruption to
our lives in our own ways, and artists - to no surprise - are responding by making art.
In the case of these recent paintings, Debra is responding to the intensely personal
tragedy of the death of a sister, compounded by the fact that pandemic travel
restrictions prevented her from being with her sister (who lived out of state) when
she died. While her sister's death was not caused by Covid-19, her surviving family
suffers the collateral emotional damage of this scourge. This is an experience shared
by countless families across the world right now, and one not captured in the statistics
that dominate the news.  

These paintings, created out of this experience, and Debra's grace and generosity in
sharing them with us, help us to comprehend better this tragedy at human scale. This
has always been one of the highest callings of art, and artists, and we are humbled by
the opportunity to share these works with you.

Selected Student Artwork from the
Kentucky Derby Museum
March-May 2020
"A New Playbook"

Acrylic on Canvas
40x30

Completed after my sister and
I had a conversation about how
some aspects of teenage angst,
and our response to them
(healthy or otherwise), can
forever shape our identity.  
I've been struck more recently
by the relevance of a "new
playbook" as our lives are being
reshaped by CV19.   

                             $1200.00
"Hold My Hand"

Acrylic on canvas
40x30

Painted in response to my
sister's diagnosis in early
December.  

$1200.00
"Tracing My Contacts"

Acrylic on canvas
30x30

I've always been
fascinated by the notion
of "six degrees (or fewer)
of separation."  It's now
clearer than ever that
immediate human
contacts can have
far-reaching effects.   

                     $900.00
"Simmer Down"

Acrylic on canvas
30x30

If we could just temper
demands for "Mine!" with
a greater concern for
"Ours".


$900.00
"The Ability to Adapt"

Acrylic on canvas
3
6x36

As we each adapt to
circumstances alone,

we then adapt to
one another.

$1300.00
"In Stitches"

Acrylic on canvas
6
0x20

Even when it feels like
things are holding
together only by a
thread, you gotta keep
your sense of humor.


$1200.00
