Annmarie's Art Breakfast on Derby

The 4th Annual Annmarie’s Art Breakfast on Derby is hosted by the Lomenta Foundation, and will benefit art and environment initiatives in the region. This includes the Annmarie Campbell Art Student scholarships at Murray State University and the Annmarie Campbell Zen Garden at Bernheim Forest and Arboretum. The event is organized by the late artist Annmarie Campbell’s mother, Dawn Marie Yankeelov. It will be in the Brown-Forman Playroom, 626 W. Main, from 9:30 AM to 1:30 PM on the morning of the Kentucky Derby. All those over 18 are invited to this buffet breakfast event that will feature selected artists as the Derby Morning’s Art Ambassadors exhibiting their works for sale; a silent art auction; reggae, jazz, and rock by the Johnny Doughnut Experience; and an exhibition of Annmarie Campbell’s work, along with selected arts and crafts. There will be a full breakfast buffet included in your ticket price and a cash bar for all drinks. Rooibee Red Tea, a local, bottled organic ready-to-drink tea, will be available for purchase and samplings. The breakfast buffet will feature egg creations, bacon, seasonal fruits, quiches, assorted cheeses, muffins, scones, or breads, and decadent desserts.

Entertainment will be provided by the award-winning ballroom dancers from Blair’s Ballroom.

Tickets are $35. Reserved sponsor tables will be $250 for 8 people.

Annmarie Campbell, grew up in Louisville, and was a passionate artist and Murray State art graduate that understood both the dark and the beautiful sides of weathering life’s journeys. The intent of her work was to investigate relationships of duality—principally, attraction and repulsion. Campbell devoted much of her time to drawing, printmaking and photography.
She died at age 23 in May 2006, while serving as an artist-in-residence at Fancy That in Paris, Tenn., attacked by an alligator on an outdoor adventure in Ocala, Florida. Yankeelov, her mother, established a scholarship in her name at Murray State to support art students, which is funded by the Lomenta Foundation.

Previous and currently committed exhibitors include: Michael Waddell (fused photography), Vian Sora (mystical works from Baghdad), and Jesse Cooley (compiled and found art), as well as other famed artists in other genres and others.

The Annmarie Campbell Memorial Zen Garden can be found off the trail around Lake Nevin. http://www.bernheim.org/memorial.html
