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. The Lomenta Foundation is looking to raise monies to support recipient art students up to a full scholarship each year.
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 Lomenta Foundation
The Lomenta Foundation, founded by Dawn Marie Yankeelov has been formed to work in the areas on interest of the late Annmarie Campbell, who lived a life of passion and adventure working as an artist. The mission of this organization is to fund and empower activities that support growth and expansion of individuals being trained at higher academic institutions in the arts, or already working in arts communities, expressing or exploring issues, genres, and thought-provoking ideas. www.lomenta.org

Bernheim Arboretum and Research Forest
Isaac W. Bernheim established Bernheim Arboretum and Research Forest in 1929. I. W. Bernheim (1848-1945) was a German immigrant who settled in Kentucky. From a humble beginning as a peddler, he became successful in the whiskey distilling business where he established the I.W. Harper brand. Grateful for his good fortune, he gave Bernheim Arboretum and Research Forest to the people of Kentucky as a gift. Bernheim features a nationally recognized arboretum, the first LEED® Platinum certified building in the state of Kentucky, beautiful gardens, tranquil lakes, and miles of trails. The Annmarie Campbell Memorial Zen Garden can be found off the trail around Lake Nevin. http://www.bernheim.org/memorial.html
