Lyn Drennan

In case you haven’t noticed, it’s Derby time. And apparently that involves chickens. Just add the two together to get Derby Chicks by Louisville artist Lyn Drennan. Her original paintings of anthropomorphized animals, as well as her line of Derby Chicks greeting cards, are on display at Gallery Janjobe. “I have fun attempting to capture the beauty and whimsy of nature on canvas,” she said. “I am particularly drawn to birds with personality, and any animal that displays a bit of attitude.” They do indeed strut their stuff. There are some hats and fascinators adorning her birds that I’m sure I saw atop the heads of the British royal family. It’s all about the hats, ladies — oops, chickens.
