Six years ago, the Kentucky Art and Craft Foundation (KACF), The Louisville Visual Art Association (LVAA) and The Speed Art Museum developed a social organization of artists and art lovers.  That organization became Artcentric -- its mission was to create opportunities for young professionals to interact with artists in a fun, yet informative way. 

Artcentric continues as a strong, vibrant organization, with this past year being one of the most memorable. Highlights include a glassblowing demonstration at the studio of Jonathan Stokes, a holiday home tour to view the Reverend Al and Mary Shands’ magnificent art collection, and a studio tour at the home of artists C.J. Fletcher and Eugene Thomas. 

Plans for next season are already underway.  We are organizing collector’s home tours, more tours to the studios of local artists, and more Artcentric events with KACF, LVAA and the Speed.

Artcentric is a young professionals group.  It is a partnership of the Speed, the Kentucky Art and Craft Foundation and the Louisville Visual Art Association. Its mission is to develop arts patrons through interaction with visual art and artists using the programs of the Speed, the LVAA, the KACF and by learning more about artists and art lovers in the Louisville community. 

Artcentric membership is $15 per person, $25 for a dual membership.  The benefits of membership include:

·        Free or discounted admission to Artcentric artists’ studio tours, home tours and parties.  There is an average of five Artcentric events per year.

·        Free or discounted admission to selected events sponsored by KACF, LVAA and The Speed Art Museum

·        Free subscriptions to KACF’s newsletter MADE IN KY, The LVAA’s Visual Art Review, and The Speed Art Museum’s Program Guide
