Paducah’s Yeiser Art Center opens a solo exhibition of Southern Indiana artist Rob Millard-Mendez later this month. Much of the sculpture in his show harkens back to his youth onboard his father’s fishing boat in Massachusetts.  Millard-Mendez blends a wry sense of humor with an unusual amount of depth in his work. Drew Adams speaks with Mendez about his work and sense of humor.

The opening reception for Rob Millard Mendez’s “A Futile Armada” is Saturday August 18th at Paducah’s Yeiser Art Center.

Murray State's Music Department and a pair of Paducah artists will share a $6,500 Art Meets Activism Grants  from The Kentucky Foundation for Women.

A contest is on to bring the controversial movie “Bully” to 10 towns around the U.S. for a free premiere and Paducah is one of the top contenders. The Demand It! contest website has Paducah in 3rd place for the movie, which goes to the top ten cities with the most votes. The contest ends Friday at 2 pm.

The Paducah School of Art opens the exhibition “Howard Finster Vision House Touring Exhibit” at the Clemens Fine Arts Center Gallery at West Kentucky Community and Technical College this evening.  The show’s curator, David Leonardis owns a Chicago  gallery with contemporary, pop and folk art, photography and late 19th and early 20th century French lithographs.
