The ninth Downtown Paris Artwalk is 5-8 p.m., April 15. The event will showcase 38 venues and more than 100 local and regional artists.
Some of the mediums included are photography, oil and acrylic paintings, pen and ink sketches, bronze sculpting, stained glass, wood carvings, handmade quilting and fabric art and mixed media art.
Also, The Orchid Society will be displaying its spring orchid collections at Overly & Johnson as well as Ardery's Antiques. Master gardeners will be giving away free flower, fruit and vegetable seeds at their artist displays in front of the Horne's building.
Gerard Massey and his team of aluminum sculptors will create another live metal pouring at the lot of the 500 block on Main Street. The theme for the sculpture is the Paris Fleur de Lis, which symbolizes the Paris connections and the theme that "Art is Everywhere" in Bourbon County. If you would like to be a part of the sculpture by purchasing and carving your own block, please contact Miranda Reynolds at (859) 988-0109. Proceeds benefit the Paris Main Street Program and future Artwalks.
Other events include the Annunciation Catholic Church's Friday night fish fry from 5 to 8 p.m., with live music by Joe Akemon and the Barbershop Pickers, a special wine tasting by Arabella Wines at Varden's, and patio food and drink specials that include an outside martini bar at Clay's Downtown.
Main Street will be closed to traffic from Fourth through 10th streets. Shuttles will transport Artwalk attendees.
