Always ahead of the curve Yoko Ono, Season of Glass... we now live in a similar time as the middle ages when a segment of the population stares at the illuminated surface of glass. Unlike the Gothic cathedral's rose window, yet equally as impressive in clarity, the devices humans carry with them ...

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.
