Madelaine Enochs-Epley Works
Lexington artist and yoga teacher Madelaine Enochs-Epley found herself in a place where her life was on the verge of becoming frenetic. A hairdresser by trade, she had also taken on a job with the University of Kentucky STEPS program, working in the kidney and liver transplant center. The two jobs had become a lot to handle -- she was constantly exhausted and unable to spend the quality time with her family that she wanted.
Fast forward six months, and Enochs-Epley is nearing 200 portraits of friends, friends of friends and complete strangers. The concept has snowballed into a full-fledged community project, with Enochs-Epley spending a couple of hours most days on the project, not only painting but juggling the constant flux of e-mails and Facebook messages of community members who want to be painted.
A reception, which is open to the public, will be Thursday, October 6, on the 5th floor executive area of the bank.
