What a wonderful way to honor an influential teacher. “Remembrance” is an exhibition dedicated to the late textile artist Lida Gordon, who died in 2021. She was the head of UofL’s fiber arts program and helped to create LAFTA (Louisville Area Fiber and Textile Artists). A few of her former students (PYRO member Bette Levy with guests Elmer Lucille Allen, Denise Furnish and Melinda Snyder) are showing their work, all the result of her encouragement and guidance. “She was respected for her personal characteristics as well as her vast expertise and willingness to share and encourage other artists,” Levy told the Kentucky Foundation for Women (Gordon was a KFW grantee and member). —Jo Anne Triplett
