Gallery 916

A great little gallery in the heart of Kentucky is Gallery 916 in Bowling Green. I was with Lot 916 (now a home studio of artists David, Kim, and Marlee Jones) as one of their artists for years and then Gallery 916 took over and the gallery still promotes some of the best art in the area. They have changed formats in that now they have exhibitions of artists once a month rather than a purely retail artists space. Both are fine, but having a new exhibition every month does give one a fresh new reason to visit the gallery every month. Up top is an image from thier webpage of the store front, after they remodeled the place, it just looks great. I can't wait to visit them again soon. A few other art spaces you should visit in Bowling Green are Memphis Art Gallery, Capitol Art Center, and Western Kentucky University Gallery.
