Creative Workshops lead to Fundraiser for Hotel Metropolitan

Paducah Arts Alliance had artist/printmaker Pat Kabore from Spartanburg, South Carolina as their artist in residence this June. While in Paducah, Kabore is conducting printmaking and dying workshops with eight students from the Oscar Cross Boys & Girls Club. They’re hosting a silent auction featuring the art they created to support the Hotel Metropolitan. iSupport art raising funds for a great institution.

Monster Lyrics

When music lyrics and cartoon monsters become the muse for a young father and elementary art teacher, you never know what unexpected personal art project will evolve. That’s exactly what happened to Paducah Arts Alliance (PAA) member and Massac County Art teacher John Romang. Music and illustrations together? Oh yes, iLove The Arts!

 

Tim Jaeger: 10

Tim Jaegar is an artist that was born and raised in Paducah but currently lives in Florida. He has returned to his roots to share the latest exhibition of his work. He is also sharing some of his artistic skills to others in a workshop. A Mid-career retrospective – just another reason iLove The Arts!

Art Side by Side

Life Through A Lens

This weekend YAC is hosting an exhibit of photography and MAC is showing some spectacular videos. All this great photojournalism was created during the Mountain Workshop, which was held in Paducah last year. It’s all about “life through a lens” – in this case pointed at people and places you know and love. iLove the arts in our area and you don’t want to miss these events!
