Rusty and Mel

Louisville’s First Friday Gallery Hop, founded in 2001, is a monthly collaborative art event filled with demonstrations, featured artists, great shopping, and lots of excitement. Using the trolleys of TARC (the Transit Authority of River City), art fans can hop from one gallery to the next to explore the city’s “Art Zone” around the Main Street, Market Street, and 4th Street corridors. Along the route, they’ll find a wide range of galleries, exhibit openings, and refreshments during special late-night hours.

For Mixed Media’s exploration of the November 2004 Gallery Hop, Mel recruited KET Director of Louisville Operations Rusty Cheuvront. Splitting up to cover as many galleries as possible, they also talked to gallery owners, patrons, and artists about why people collect art and how it enhances their lives.

Even with two people on the case, we couldn’t quite make it to every gallery. The complete list of participating galleries:

  • Actors Theatre Gallery
  • Baer Fabrics
  • Bittners
  • Brown Hotel
  • Chapman Friedman
  • The Cinderblock
  • Elaine Claire
  • E&S Gallery
