Give Where You Live Recipient
Habitat for Humanity – May 2017:
Lexington Habitat for Humanity is dedicated to eliminating substandard housing locally and worldwide through constructing, rehabilitating and preserving homes; by advocating for fair and just housing policies; and by providing training and access to resources to help families improve their shelter conditions. Habitat for Humanity was founded on the conviction that every man, woman and child should have a simple, durable place to live in dignity and safety, and that decent shelter in decent communities should be a matter of conscience and action for all.
Art in the Café
My name is Jerielle, and I am an artist. I am also a citizen of Big Blue Nation! My art is made especially for Kentuckians, by a true blue Kentuckian. I try to give Kentuckians what they already love, only in a way that connects them to the rest of the world. I have a love for all the KY icons that I paint or draw, and I believe that sense of pride is one that every Kentuckian should feel. I do commissions, murals and portraits.
I direct Art in Post Time at Meadowthorpe Elementary two days a week, and teach painting at Employment Solutions (a program that empowers people with disabilities) two days a week. Occasionally, I teach 6 week courses with “Art on the Move,” a non-profit that services children at risk. I’m currently curating and installing an Art Program at a prominent insurance company’s corporate headquarters in Hamburg.
I have a Gallery downtown on the third floor in the Square “Galerie Jerielle” above Saul Good. In addition, I have an Etsy store and you can also find me at the NOLI Night Market. I do private or group lessons, by request.
