May 1st Friday Trolley Hop

Posted by chaska on May 10, 2010


Don’t worry if you missed the First Friday Trolley Hop on Market Street. Most galleries will have their shows up all month. Here’s a quick look some of the highlights in the NuLu area.

Reba Rye at Zephyr Gallery

At Zephyr Gallery, 610 East Market Street, check out the big photographic canvasses of Reba Rye of Frankfort. If you find photographs a bit cold for your taste, these will warm you up. They are often arranged as triptychs or diptychs, frequently with one panel showing a person turning away from the viewer. The idea is, you’re seeing their world, from their point of view. Each panel of the triptychs works at a different scale, from close-ups of sand to aerial shots of the U.S. West. More artists, more hop

Derby Days…

Posted by chaska on May 5, 2010


Oh first Saturday in May. Joy. From hawkers that stand around Central Avenue, selling their wares or allowing car tire divots in their yards, to those that pass in their beautiful refinery, eating magnificent foods and drinking heavenly cocktails, enjoying an atmosphere like none other. My Old Kentucky Home indeed.

Building toward the next step…

Posted by chaska on May 4, 2010

Building toward the next incarnation of BVS is proving to be a beautiful adventure – one of which, I couldn’t be more excited. We’ll be announcing some of our feature contributors soon, but in the meantime, we’re still looking for a few good folks – writers, photographers, event organizers/caterers & ad sales – especially in the areas of Lexington and N. KY/Cincinnati. We’ll be doing our soft launch by the end of this month and then doing a full launch within a month to 6 weeks. Not only will we have amazing articles, but you’ll also find insider information, tips and tricks in our forum.

What we’re looking for and what to look forward to… Read the rest of this entry »
