Gallery Hop This Friday in Lex!

Gallery Hop this Friday in downtown Lexington from 5-8 PM, a great chance to visit galleries, see contemporary works of art, hang out with friends and make new ones, as well as earn some Nexus/CEP Flex credit (ask me how).

I'm especially excited about this year's University Open show, featuring student work from Kentucky colleges and Universities. And once again, Georgetown will be represented in the show. You can find the show at ArtsPlace, 161 N. Mill Street in Lexington.

Here's what LexArts says about the Gallery Hop...
LexArts’ Hop is a self-guided tour of the visual arts in downtown Lexington, KY. Patrons visit the sites of their choice, beginning at any location. It occurs 5-8pm on the third Friday of February, April, June, September and November. Hop began 25 years ago and continues to be the premier event for the visual arts in Lexington. Admission is always free and sites present a new exhibit for each hop. Most sites offer refreshments for guests.

LexTran generously provides Colt Trolley service free to hop patrons, which will stop at any bus stop along the routes marked on the map in this brochure. Thanks to the Colt Trolley service Hop borders have expanded in recent years to include artist studios being established in the Distillery District on Manchester Street and on North Limestone. The season sponsorship by Stoll Keenon Ogden has also contributed to the growth of Hop by funding an increased marketing effort. Hop is managed by LexArts, as a service to the visual arts
community in Lexington.
