Paint by Nature: Trees

The city of Lexington’s Environmental Services division is partnering with Arts Connect to produce an Artist’s Showcase Exhibition. This year, the inspiration for artwork will be trees. Artists — both amateur and professional — are invited to select from these 23 trees throughout the city.

Deadline: November 6, 2020


Black Lives Matter: The Call for Positive Change!

Held in conjunction with the exhibition Ayé Alton: Sun Ra and Beyond and during Black History month, the LASC is seeking art work centered on the theme Black Lives Matter: The Call for Positive Change! The rise of the Black Lives Matter movement has brought to the forefront the issue of plight among African-Americans and the injustices inflicted on our Black communities. During this period of strife and political unrest, great change can occur. Through the bridging of communities and self-expression, understanding can emerge. The LASC is seeking artwork that reflects this movement and its positive call for change during this important chapter in our nation’s history. This will be a juried exhibition of 2D framed art that will be presented on the walls of the LASC’s Atrium Gallery this spring.

Deadline: December 4, 2020


Open Call

Over the years the gallery has hosted exhibitions by Kentucky’s finest artists, as well as new and emerging artists exhibiting for the first time. Inquiries to Patricia Wheatley, pwheatley@centralbank.com.

Deadline: Rolling
