Venue Description
The John G. Irvin Gallery was created to promote Kentucky's visual artists and opened in March 1987. The creation of the gallery was a labor of love and a passion of the late Irvin, a Lexingtonian and former employee of Central Bank. 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. It is located on the 2nd and 3rd floors of the Central Bank building.
