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.
On April 25, 2020 the Lexington Art League will host the second annual NorthSide Festival in honor of LaVon Williams. The festival will take place at 209 Castlewood Dr. Lexington, KY 40505 on the grounds of the Loudoun House from 10 am - 5 pm. The application process for this event is open call and invitational. Applications will be juried by LaVon Williams and Lexington Art League staff. The application fee is $25 and is open from September 30th - December 16th, 2019. Preference will be given to artists residing on the North Side of Lexington.
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.
We accept proposals for solo and group exhibitions by artists and curators of local artwork in the greater Lexington area for 2021 for our individual galleries. Proposals will be accepted by KY visual artists who are current members of the Lexington Art League. Priority will be given to artists from Lexington and adjoining counties.
Opportunities for All
Fall Back Art Swap: Sunday, November 3rd, 2-4pm. Don’t forget to change your clocks--fall back. Bring an artwork and swap it for something new. Artists and art lovers are invited to participate in this art swap. $25 per artwork, up to three artwork per person. More information for artists and participants in the link above.
A rental space for groups and individuals who share our mission to support local visual arts. The Lexington Art League makes its community room available to the public for workshops, meetings, and other events. The community room is available if there are no pre-scheduled events and if the proposed activity and date/time is deemed appropriate by league management.
The Lexington Art League offers professional internship opportunities on an ongoing basis. Internships can be tailored to the individual's interest, availability, and educational requirements. Typically an intern will work 120-150 total hours over the course of 3-4 months under the supervision of Art League staff. While many interns are students, enrollment in a college or university is not required.
