On Tuesday March 19, 2013 from 12-1 pm at the Carnegie Center for Art and History in New Albany, Indiana, Warren and Julie Payne, guest curators of the Carnegie Center’s current exhibit The Artists of the Wonderland Way, will present the Lunch & Learn program A Virtual Tour of Fairview Cemetery and Artists’ Homes in New Albany. The Artists of the Wonderland Way is on display through April 6, 2013, and Lunch & Learn attendees are encouraged to view the exhibit before or after the program. Participants can bring a lunch, drinks are provided. This program is free, but registration is required (812-944-7336 or email
). The Lunch and Learn programs are sponsored by the Carnegie Center, Inc.
Warren and Julie Payne will discuss the use of genealogical research and tools such as ancestry.com in researching works of art, and in particular those included in The Artists of the Wonderland Way. This virtual tour will include images of headstones of a number of Wonderland Way artists buried at Fairview Cemetery, and photos of many of the Wonderland Way artists’ homes today. Genealogical research also played an important role in the discovery of where these artists lived, and their former residences can be found in the Midtown neighborhood on Cedar Bough Place, Oak Street, Culbertson Avenue and Shelby Place, and on DePauw and Florence Avenues, as well as near Silver Creek on Beharrell Avenue.
Warren and Julie Payne, of Payne Fine Arts, are art collectors who have curated exhibitions in Southern Indiana and Louisville for many years. The Paynes curated a similar, though smaller scale, exhibit of the Wonderland Way artists in 2000, titled The Collectors’ Showcase: Artists of the Ohio Valley School and the Wonderland Way, 1883-1940.
