For Release: 01/14/15 12:42 PM
The next episode of Louisville Life, hosted by Candyce Clifft, profiles renowned sculptor and educator Bob Lockhart, chocolatier Kelly Ramsey of Art Eatables, author Sharon P.S. Marx, and Belmar Flower Shop. The program airs Saturday, Feb. 7 at 5:30/4:30 pm on KET2 and Sunday, Feb. 8 at 10/9 am on KET.
First, Louisville Life spotlights longtime Bellarmine University professor and acclaimed sculptor Bob Lockhart, whose works were the subject of a three-exhibition retrospective co-produced by the Louisville Visual Art Association, Bellarmine University and the University of Louisville Hite Art Institute last fall.
Then, the program showcases the delectable chocolate creations of Art Eatables, owned by Kelly Ramsey, who launched her business with a goal of making “sophisticated” bourbon candy. Ramsey’s sweets have become popular not only with Louisville locals but with celebrities as well: a box of her candies were included in every nominee’s gift pack at the 2014 Academy Awards.
Just in time for Valentine’s Day, the “Throwback Louisville” segment takes a look at several other Kentucky-based candies, including the Modjeska, created in Louisville to honor a visiting actress; the Taffy Tolu, one of the country’s first flavored gums; and Rebecca Ruth Candy, based in Frankfort.
In the studio, host Candyce Clifft interviews author Sharon P.S. Marx, whose book Looking for Love Through Thicker Lenses: A Guide to Dating Later in Life dispels misconceptions and myths about dating for older adults.
Finally, the show visits Belmar Flower Shop, a family-owned and operated florist on Preston Highway, which has been serving up the freshest of bouquets – especially at Valentine’s Day – for more than 70 years.
Louisville Life is a KET production, produced and directed by Gary Pahler. Jayne McClew is co-producer, and Angelic Phelps is associate producer.
