Sculpture in the Dell

Local art will find a home this summer as the second annual Sculpture in the Dell art showcase kicks off. The works of more than 20 regional sculptors and glass artists will be on display and available for purchase all summer long. Professional artists won’t be the only ones with work on display, though, as students from three Oldham County high schools will be participating as well.

“Sculpture in the Dell offers a truly unique environment for regional artists,” says Yew Dell executive director Paul Cappiello. “We are delighted to be able to foster collaboration in the local arts community.”

The two-day opening weekend includes art from Gallery 104 in La Grange and the Louisville Clay Club, who will display ceramic art in Yew Dell’s two-story stone castle. Regular admission will be $7, seniors $5. —Dennis O’Neil
