The Lou Tate Gallery at The Little Loomhouse
Gallery Hours: Wed-Fri 10am-2pm & Sat 11am-4pm
Artist Reception, free and open to the public, is Thursday, May 11 at 6:30-8:00 pm
This Side by Side exhibition is made up of sixteen 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 VSA Kentucky in partnership with The Kentucky School for the Blind, and The Little Loomhouse.
Before they partnered with a professional artist, the student artists took a series of art classes, at the Kentucky School for the Blind, taught by VSA KY Teaching Artist Michelle Amos. Art classes are provided free of charge as is the mentoring session with the professional artist, making this program an exceptional opportunity for participants.
VSA Kentucky is a statewide, nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting arts education, and creative expression for all, with an emphasis on persons with disabilities. For more information visit the website at www.vsartsky.org.
