Friday, April 5th marks an important day in Louisville, Kentucky. It is exactly 30 days from the 145th Kentucky Derby.

On the same block, Mysterious Rack will be crafting fascinators and  Block Party Handmade Boutique is having their 6th Anniversary Celebration. Across the street, a hands-on sugar-cookie-art-making event at Belmar Baked can be found at the Cellar Door Chocolates Gallery and just down the street The Winner’s Circle Hosted by The Brown Hotel will be opening.

On the North end of 4th Street, we have another very special event. For the first time, the public will have the opportunity to Meet the Galt House Artist in Residence Finalists 5 PM – 7 PM, Kacy Jackson, Jordan Morgan, Gibbs Rounsavall and Ewa Perz will be in the gallery for a meet and greet.
