The Mellwood Art Center is located at 1860 Mellwood Avenue, Louisville Kentucky. This unique building is located between Zorn Avenue and Brownsboro Road. Mellwood is known to many Louisville natives as the old Fischer meat packing plant.
Now, Mellwood houses roughly over 200 tenants from artist and art galleries, to a cafe, dance studios and novelty shops. The tenants of Mellwood has formed a non-profit organization named M.A.C., which will host demo days on the courtyard, the second Saturday of each month.
This allows artist to work outside their studio and gain exposure. Patrons my see performers, painters, wood carving or learn how to create a glass center piece. If you are an artist and would like to be a part of Demo Days, send an email to email@example.com.

Come one, come all to the glass carnival! Running from June 3 – July 30, Flame Run is pulling out all the stops for this fun-filled kid-centric glass art exhibit.
The show will include whimsical contemporary glass art such as Eddie Bernard’s alphabet zoo animals and Shelley Muzylowski Allen’s colorful jester giraffes. And what would a carnival be without ice cream vendors, balloon animals, face-painting, and giant (four-feet tall) popsicles at the Flame Run entrance!
Proceeds from the show (10 percent of all sales) will benefit Children’s Hospital Foundation.
Children are invited to an opening day kid-friendly reception from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. on June 4. Steve Scherer will do a flame-working demonstration and Carrie Battista will do a hot glass demonstration.
October’s Fat Friday Trolley Hop lands just two days before Halloween – Clifton Art Supply / Spot 5 Art Studio will be ready for fun! Local artists will be setting up booths in the space between Clifton Art Supply and Pottery Rowe. This is a great chance to pick up original pieces of art while supporting the local arts community.
Also, as you may recall, Spot 5 had a call for entries for their Haunted Headquarters Exhibit in which everyone was invited to decorate a Styrofoam wig head with fluorescent paint. The show opened October 18 (you can come by and see it any time during business hours) – but the artists reception will be October 29 starting at 6 PM. Everyone is invited. The entries are a lot of fun and just the thing to get you psyched up for Halloween!
New Classes Forming – The Spot 5 Press will have a printmaking class starting Wednesday, October 27th. Rob Firestone will be teaching the finer points of linocutting – just in time for the holidays! There is still time to join the class if you are interested, click here.
Laurie has also opened a new studio painting class on Fridays 12:30 – 3:30. The class is already filling quickly – if you are interested, give her a call or visit the Spot 5 website.
The Artist in You, located in Louisville, is for anyone interested in painting his or her own pottery. The Artist in You offers over 300 pieces to choose from, ranging from $5-$75 each.
