PRHBTN Exhibition is a radically inclusive salon style exhibition in celebration of Kentucky visual artists. This exhibition is produced in tandem with the 9th annual PRHBTN public art/mural festival that enlivens our community with new public murals in Lexington, KY each fall.
The Lexington Art League has hosted ‘The Nude’ annual exhibition for most of the past 30 years. It has grown to be one of the most anticipated annual exhibitions in Lexington. With redefining, and a return to its founding mission to ‘create opportunities for Lexington area artists and those who appreciate their work,’ the Lexington Art League is proud to present the Kentucky Nude as a biennial. This exhibition showcases contemporary nude figurative art by Kentucky artists. Juried by Don Ament and Helene Steene.

Alternative Project Space Proposal - Call to Artists
Alternative Project Space: The Lexington Art League has occupied the historic and dynamic Loudoun House since 1984. It’s primary spaces are activated with exhibitions and special events, community rooms, markets shops, workshops, artist studios and offices. Instep with our renewed mission to serve local artists, we have identified new opportunities for local artists to activate a couple of our smaller, more intimate, and underutilized alternative spaces of the Loudoun House… the tower, and the back staircase landing toward the attic.
The Lexington Art League is launching its first ever permanent Local Art Store this November. The store will occupy the prominent Woolfolk Gallery on the main level of the historic Loudoun House and will be open to the public during all exhibition receptions and gallery hours, which are always free to attend.
This winter the Lexington Art League introduces a brand new one day holiday market exclusively for Kentucky artists. This market will give art lovers a perfect opportunity to find artwork and holiday gifts by over 20 local artists, all in one location. Hosted at the historic castellated villa, the Loudoun House, this market will provide the perfect setting to kick off the season.
We invite artists creating 2D and small scale sculptural artworks to submit to join us for feedback and group discussion of finished artworks or artworks in process. Selected participating artists may bring one artwork or a body of up to 3 small/medium artworks for discussion in a group of peers and facilitators. Our first facilitators have included Paul Michael Brown of Institute 193, Sarah Madison Brown, Director of Parachute Factory and Adrienne Dixon, visual artist and Lexington Art League Events Director.
