Sarah Heller is an artist for whom life and art are seemless, both an expression of her passion for
responsible living. Her body of work is thus an ethical statement as well as a creative one, and
viewing it challenges us to rethink our relationship to our materialistic culture. Not incidentally,
it’s also bright, energetic and fun!
In addition to welcoming Sarah to the gallery, I am also pleased to be partnering with the Paul
Sawyier Public Library on Wapping Street in Frankfort, to sponsor a lecture by Sarah on "The
Art of Sustainability" on Tuesday, May 28th at 6:30pm. My thanks to Diane Dehoney and all
the library staff for allowing Sarah to share her insights as an architect and artist for ways in
which we can all live more responsibly and humanely.
Larry W. Moore, curator
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 KECU for their support."
Jane Chancellor Moore (1951-2010)
Jane Chancellor Moore was the principle
curator of Broadstone Gallery from its opening
until her untimely death in the spring of 2010, at
which time KECU 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

"ORDER IN CAMOUFLAGE" Mixed Media Construction 1 11 x 18 inches
Our momentum in life constantly sways between two extremes: order and chaos. Making a form
in a meaningful way and constructing it within the proportional constraints of the golden ratio is
nothing new in the realm of design. It is often an attempt to gesture toward the order side of the
Currently, the way in which we consume and dispose of materials is chaotic and unsustainable.
The body of my work brings together people with what they have abandoned, to allow them to
see afresh the natural world. Living in urban and suburban societies, nature becomes what is
outside the door – often far from the pastoral ideal of grassy slopes and bubbling streams, and
more often, the concrete streets and alley ways, littered with discarded objects, after usefulness
or beauty has faded in the eye of its beholder. This includes not only scraps of papers and
textiles, but metals, wood, and ceramics, tossed away and left to disappear beneath or beside
the unseeing footsteps of pedestrians.
I recognize the natural world around me, even what is considered “waste,” and see its potential
and beauty, and create a space for it to be highlighted. I search out these items that are not
necessarily unknown, only largely ignored and devalued. I find this world of secrets open to me
while walking down a street and am amazed by the hundreds of pennies waiting to be noticed, by
the sections of wires now curled into spirals, by the abandoned hardware with a fine layer of rust.
Each of these is constructed and crafted intentionally, making each a feat of design. All it takes
is someone with the eyes to see beyond the surface. These found objects, in combination with
color and texture on a canvas, provide the space for them to be seen, in all their intricacy.
Sarah Heller received her Bachelor and Master of Architecture degrees from the University of
Kentucky and has worked in the field internationally, in the process embracing the necessity of
incorporating sustainable materials and practices into our built environment. She now applies
these lessons and materials in her work as a visual artist, based out of her studio in Lexington,
Kentucky. Her work has been exhibited in California and Kentucky. She also offers programs
on sustainability in life and art to groups of all ages.
