Listen in for an hour of hat-centric songs as we spoke with milliner Sarah Havens about her process and upcoming events! With Derby right around the corner, you won’t want to miss this one.

Each of Haven’s hats is a unique creation often designed with a specific person in mind. Her handmade lids are characterized by embellishments that are sewn, not glued, so they can be changed for something new for every event. This versatility allows the hats to be worn for many different occasions and in various seasons.

“After each hat is formed in straw or felt, I then remove it from the block and cut away the parts that aren’t part of the design,” Havens explains. “I size the piece to an appropriate stiffness; add millinery wire to the brim to hold its shape; and then add the ‘sweatband’ inside the hat. From there, I add trim and lining, if needed. I then style the hat with the help of a little steam, and pinch it in certain places to ensure the hat compliments and frames the client’s face in the most attractive way.”

Havens’ hats are available at The Gift Horse in Louisville, KY and she will be a part of the KMAC Couture: Art Walks the Runway on April 11, 2014. She is also the featured artist at the Louisville Visual Art Association’s April Food for Thought: LUNCH & LEARN series. Havens will discuss her practice, including a live demonstration, and offer hats and fascinators from her most recent collection for sale at the Louisville Boat Club on April 8, Noon to 1:30PM. Tickets are only $15 for LVAA members and $25 for nonmembers. The price includes lunch, dessert and beverages. Sure to be a sell-out, make your pre-paid reservations, today!

Julie Baldyga works primarily in oil pastel. Many of her pieces depict women working on machines, engines, and motors. She is fascinated with electrical systems, and this focus on the way things work also applies to her soft sculptures— which are built from the inside out, so a sculpture of a person would have a liver and intestines inside, for example. Julie is currently featured in a show at the Jewish Community Center along with other StudioWorks artists, and last November showed artwork at the Kentucky Museum of Art and Craft. She also recently completed a large commission for the Big Ass Fan Company.

This week we tried something a little different. A couple weeks ago Jonathan Bastian interviewed Marc Murphy, the editorial cartoonist for the Courier Journal, about his style and process as an event to pair with the On the Strip exhibit at PUBLIC gallery. This week’s show paired clips from that interview with a few songs inspired by his political cartoons.

Marc Murphy’s editorial cartoons are published 5 times each week in the Louisville Courier-Journal and at They are reproduced in Gannett newspapers around the country. He is also a practicing trial attorney in federal and state courts. His mother was an accordion player and his father hosted dance parties on TV, and it is entirely possible his art is an effort to deal with this. It is, at a minimum, not out of the question.

He was raised in Northeastern Kentucky, attended Notre Dame, served in the Army in Germany and Central America, and held political office in Louisville. He is a liberal. Or a progressive. Or both.
