Photo screen printing techniques presented through a workshop with Ed Lambert (Georgia) at University of Louisville under the continuing education program by Julia Duncan. Alma Lesch screen printed a family photograph using her parents (Paducah)  and used the image for surface design and fabric printing in a subsequent workshop with Sister Mary Remy Revor the following semester.

I regret missing your presentation at the Carnegie, but am enjoying seeing more of Alma Lesch's art and learning more about her.

METRO Louisville galleries command a tradition within the Bluegrass. Art surrounds us, everywhere, in Kentucky. The tradition of celebrating exemplary art found in our American landscape while honoring the legacy of the Commonwealth itself is reborn in Craft(s) Gallery on South Fourth Street. Heading into it's third year on South Fourth this anchor has rejuvenated the downtown between the Brown and the Seelbach. Even the floor on which you stand inside the SOFO gallery has the history of Baer Fabric artists as Alma Lesch and her circle. There are few folk art venues matching this architectural masterpiece unless you drive 140 miles east to visit Morehead's Folk Art Center in Rowan County.

The price points are beyond Metro Louisville expectations with a stellar assortment of artists materials for the active studio artist. Monthly gallery exhibits feature local emerging artists and digital printing services meet photography and graphic arts specs.
