First Friday Photo Fun [Visual Art]

Print

 

It seems everyone is a budding photographer now that we have instant access to a camera whenever we want (thank you smart phones). Still, there’s a lot more to taking pictures than a push of a digital button. Louisville is being taken by storm by professional photographers from all over the country and even from our northern neighbors of Canada during the entire month of October.

The Photo Biennial is Louisville’s premier photographic festival that started in 1999 by Swanson Cralle East Market (now Swanson Contemporary), Galerie Hertz, Zephyr Gallery and Erin Divine Gallery (a predecessor of Pyro). With more than 30 exhibitions citywide, the Photo Biennial is Louisville’s largest cooperative effort among local museums, galleries, universities and other public art venues. This month long event is open to the general public to allow viewers the opportunity to learn about and to appreciate photography on a local and global level.

The First Friday Gallery Hop will provide the kick-off to many of the coordinated gallery openings.

Cressman Center for Visual Arts- Mitch Eckert

Firehouse Gallery- Julius Friedman

About Julie Gross
I’m originally from Ohio, but have been a Louisvillian for half my life. I divide my time between hubby, 3 kids, too many pets, and the 930 Art Center. When I'm not, you'll find me running the trails in Cherokee or Jefferson Memorial Forest.
