Paducah’s LowerTown Arts District is exploding with holiday excitement as the season approaches. A host of holiday events are planned this year including the 2nd Annual Affordable Art Show, scheduled for Thursday, December 2, from 5 to 8 p.m. The show will be held at Philosophy Gallery, located at 333 North 9th Street, in the LowerTown Arts District.

Last year’s show was hugely successful with over 20 local artists selling art priced from $25 to $500. This year the event has expanded and about 45 local artists will present a variety of affordable fine art options, including paintings, prints, jewelry, ceramics and pottery.

For the best selection of work, attendees should come to the gallery early before everything sells out!

“All of us in Paducah love to tell people how great our arts community is, but we sometimes forget to shop there,” said Jessica Perkins, Marketing Manager for the Paducah Renaissance Alliance. “This is the perfect way to support our local arts community and to keep our artists successful in Paducah.”

The Affordable Art Show is a great place to purchase unique gifts for family and friends.

“There is always someone on your shopping list who seems to have everything, and this show will be the perfect venue to find those gifts which are exceptional and unique,” said Perkins.

Food will be provided by Artisan Kitchen and wine by Glisson Vineyards and Winery of Paducah. The show is also sponsored by the Paducah Renaissance Alliance, iList Paducah, Paducah Life Magazine, Paducah Printing and Banterra Bank.
