For nearly 30 years the Lexington Art League has been hosting a yearly Kentucky Nude Exhibit. This year marks the first time that the exhibit has been hosted as a biennial. But that's not the only change that is happening with this iconic event.
Earlier in the year the Lexington Art League began a period of rebranding to focus on local and regional artists. Prior to this the League's events and exhibits were focused on bringing in national and international artists. This new direction allows the League to provide opportunities to local artists. The 2019 Kentucky Nude Exhibit is the primary example of this shift in focus.
With over 80 works by local and regional artists the 2019 Kentucky Nude Exhibit is filling the galleries of the historic Loudoun House, the League's historic home. From now until January 5 visitors will be able to explore the works of these artists. The show is a premiere example of local talent, further progressing Kentucky's position as an artistic leader in the 2020's.
The 2019 Kentucky Nude Exhibit will be open until January 5. Gallery hours for the Lexington Art League are:
Tuesday - Friday [12-6pm] and Saturday - Sunday [1-4pm]
The Lexington Art League will be closed December 23 - January 1 for the Holidays.
