YOU ARE INVITED to attend the Opening Reception for “Side by Side: An Exhibition of Artistic Collaborations”, May 19 through August 20, 2022. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Friday, 10am-3pm and Saturday, 11am-4pm. The exhibition includes collaborative artwork by student artists from Dreams with Wings and professional artists in the Louisville area. The Artist Reception is free and open to the public and will take place on Thursday, May 19 from 5pm – 7pm at The Lou Tate Gallery.
This Side by Side exhibition is made up of ten groups of art – one made by the student artist, one made by the professional artist, and one collaborative piece. Each design represents a lively interaction between youthful spirit, and the experience of professional working artists. Side by Side is an annual program offered by Arts for All Kentucky in partnership with Dreams with Wings, and The Little Loomhouse.
Before they partnered with a professional artist, the student artists took a series of art classes, at Dreams with Wings, taught by Arts for All Teaching Artist Tricia Hart. Art classes are provided free of charge as is the mentoring session with the professional artist, making this program an exceptional opportunity for participants.
