Meet The Artists: A Celebration of ART & Community
Paducah has discovered that Art is one of its greatest resources for education, engagement and community spirit. The diverse artists and crafts persons who are part of its creative cultural community have enriched our city, enhanced our personal lives, changed perspectives, and broaden our international horizons.
A new, unprecedented event is being created for the local community, region and visitors in Paducah, KY. A collaboration of the Paducah Art Community, over 50 artists have come together to create “Meet the Artists”, A Celebration of ART & COMMUNITY.
It is an opportunity for Paducah Artists to connect and re-connect with the Public, build relationships, share their stories and show their art. Many of the artists also want it to be a time to show their appreciation of the community that has supported them.
As an UNESCO designated city, it will also provide an opportunity for the public, art lovers, and art collectors to come experience a Celebration of Paducah Arts and meet those artists up close and personal who have contributed to this defining designation.
The event is being held in the Historic Coca Cola Plant at 3141 Broadway, which is one of Paducah’s recently rehabilitated historic treasures. Our sponsors and partners are Paducah Main Street, the Paducah Convention and Visitors Bureau, Paducah Economic Development and the Chamber of Commerce. Light Hors d'oeuvres will be provided and the Dry Ground Brewery and Piper’s Tea and Coffee will be open for drinks.
There are fifty-one artists participating in the event from the local area including both individual artists and art groups like Paducah Art Alliance, the Art Guild, Yeiser Art center, Bricolage Art Collective, Wastelanders and PAPA Gallery.
