What do 73 Local Studio artists and my high school Art teacher have in common? They opened the doors into their studios and let me experience the world through their eyes. This weekend right here in our own community, 73 artists will open the doors to their studios and let you experience the space that inspires them to make beautiful art! This incredible two-day event sponsored by the Louisville Visual Art Association, the University of Louisville Hite Art Institute, and Maker’s Mark is one you won’t want to miss!
You know, as I read about this event, and the many local artists participating it makes me grateful to live in this city. A city where Arts are thriving and changing peoples lives. Gratitude is one of the most powerful feelings you can express. It is a cornerstone of charity. And thanks to your ongoing support, we are in the charity business! So watch this week’s video blog and then email me your story of gratitude!
