Starting as a young child, Liesl showed an interest in designing fashion presented
through her unique illustrative styles. Her interest in pursuing this field as a career led
her to the Visual Arts Magnet at duPont Manual High School in Louisville, KY, where she
was given the opportunity to further develop her passion and creative skills.
Upon graduation in 2005, Liesl was awarded the "Fashion Designer of Tomorrow"
national scholarship by the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising (FIDM) in Los
Angeles, CA. Moving to LA, Liesl continued to paint while earning her degree in Textile
Design with a minor in Fashion Illustration.
Following graduation from FIDM, Liesl immediately went to work for a textile design
company in LA, designing unique textile prints for global fashion companies, including
Lucky Brand, Brighton and David Meister.
During this time, Liesl also started painting unique and fanciful children's art for
Colleen Karis Designs which are nationally sold in TJ MAXX Home Goods.
Returning to Louisville in 2011, Liesl continues her art career painting as a freelance
children's and fashion illustration artist, creating commissioned art, and giving art
lessons to children and adults. Her paintings can be found for sale in local art galleries
"I love to reach out and share my artistic gifts with others. It makes me feel honored.
That is what makes art so special - it unites and connects the hearts and minds of
everyone it touches."

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
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
Jane Chancellor Moore (1951-2010)
Jane Chancellor Moore was the principal
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

I like to think that all of our shows are special, but this one is extra special - you might
say it's been 14 years in the making.
Way back in the spring of 2005, we had the first of our annual "Art in the Winner's
Circle" exhibitions of student artwork from the Kentucky Derby Museum. One of our
artists that year was a high school senior named Liesl Long. Her piece was a knockout,
so much so that we installed it in the entry where it would be the first artwork that
Here's how it looked:
I remember I liked it
enough to try to purchase
it, but her parents said
they were keeping it for
Liesl's portfolio, as she
was planning to enroll in
art school. But I kept this
photograph, to remind
me of her work.
Fast forward a decade or
so: I was back at the
Derby Museum, and I
heard that one of the
judges for the student
art show that year was Liesl Long Chaintreuil. Of course I recognized her name
immediately, and was excited to learn that after having indeed gone to art school, and
pursuing a successful career in fashion design in California, Liesl was back home in
Louisville working as a free-lance artist specializing in equestrian scenes. I got in touch
with her at once and invited her to exhibit her artwork at our gallery.
So this is a homecoming of sorts. And what a wonderful and inspirational story of a
young artist who did go on to fulfill her ambition.
Another thing that I love about having Liesl back in the gallery is that it gives us a
chance to see how the promise exhibited in that student painting has been more than
realized in her professional work. In fact, we can see that her signature style was
emerging in that early piece.
Finally, what could be better than a show of racing-themed paintings and prints just in
time for the fall meet at Keeneland, which appears along with Churchill Downs in many
of Liesl's works.
So come to the gallery to celebrate the season, and to welcome back an artist from
our very first year. And best of all, this time we can buy her work!
