M.S. Rezny Studio brings color for Gallery Hop

The M.S. Rezny Studio & Gallery has been overtaken by color. Spiky, primary-colored bacterial and human cells climb the white walls; whimsical, mixed media sculptures with animalistic faces — narwhals, bears, unidentified mammals — and pastel bodies stand in the center of the room; luscious paintings with bright strokes that form bodies, written words and abstract patterns anchor the exhibit. These seemingly disparate objects, created by four different artists, are all part of a tightly woven exhibition at the gallery called Renegade Chroma.

Young artists accelerate their business through Kentucky Crafted

This weekend, the Lexington Convention center will be crowded with booths — some stacked high with sculpture or jewelry, others strung with tapestry and weavings, while yet others serve as the display for deft and vibrant watercolors. This marks the 34th annual Kentucky Crafted: The Market, which is the Kentucky Arts Council’s signature event, produced each year featuring art, craft, literature, music, film and food found in the Commonwealth.
