The Exchange Club and the Exchange Club Foundation of Tuscaloosa recently presented donations of $1000 to two Tuscaloosa area organizations: the YMCA and Kentuck. Money for the donations came from the Exchange Club’s annual Chili Cookoff, held each year in February.

Yvonne Wells’ quilting genius was noticed at her very first Kentuck Festival of the Arts, where she won Best in Show in 1979.   
 
A fixture at the festival for over 30 years, her work as a folk artist has moved far beyond Tuscaloosa.

The first Thursday of every month is a time for celebrating in downtown Northport, and that time is upon us once again. Kentuck Art Night is set for this Thursday, July 7, from 5 to 8 p.m. Guests can enjoy great live music, food, and of course, incredible art.

Art Night in Northport is always great fun, but it was particularly so on Thursday night, when crowds gathered to see the newly renovated Kentuck Art Center museum building. An open house party was held, and attendees were able to get an up close look at all of the work done to the building – work that began thanks to the efforts of Kentuck’s Capital Campaign Steering Committee and Board of Directors.

Door prizes were awarded, live music was presented by Matt Wurtele and Chase Childress, and visitors were treated to an exhibit of glass sculpture by artist Thomas Spake.

A champagne toast in Kentuck’s Gallery Shop was held, and spirits were high.

Druid City Living’s own Allison Adams was there, and she snapped some great photos of the evening’s festivities – including a shot of the brand new, gorgeous conference room table designed and created by Alon Wingard and Steve Davis.

Congratulations, Kentuck! Well done!
