‘Around the World’ @ Bearno’s by the Bridge

Through Oct. 1

Bearno’s by the Bridge
131 W. Main St. • 584-7437

Louisville’s annual World Fest brings together 20 local artists for a group show, each offering his or her interpretation of the theme “Around the World.” From the color-soaked canvases of Josh Loveless to the visual poetry of Jinn Fuller Renfro, the exhibit, now on display at Bearno’s By the Bridge, is diverse. Sandie Griffin, one half of Lucent Dreams Photography, contributes a vibrant picture of a stone doorway, its starry cutouts and evil eye a far cry from her typical, nature-focused work. “The symbols and shapes of the architectural details caught my eye,” she says. “I like to imagine that it is a portal to another world. I kept thinking if I walked through that doorway, I would instantly travel somewhere I had never been, a strange mythical and wondrous place.” Friday’s opening reception will also feature a performance by world progressive pop/rock band Son of the Widow. —Jennifer Harlan
