The final Gallery Hop of the year is 5 to 8 p.m. Friday, and it's a doozy: burlesque performers, outsider street art at the PRHBTN festival and even some shopping opportunities.
The Bluegrass Printmakers' Cooperative will host an Off the Block T-shirt printing event at its basement studio at ArtsPlace, 161 North Mill Street.
Just pick out a linoleum-cut design by one of the members, and they'll print it on a shirt for $15 (cash or check) per tee. Participating artists are: Paul Adanick, Nick Alley, Marta Dorton, Elizabeth Foley, Natalia Ilieva, Derrick Riley and Stephen Wiggins.
Members also will have other types of prints for sale including etchings, relief prints, monoprints and collagraphs.
