Kentucky’s art scene is alive and kicking; with contemporary art galleries in Lexington growing in number and scope, the city is becoming a cultural destination worth a trip. From traditional equestrian photography to experimental installations, from Southern artists to international creatives, we explore the best galleries displaying modern art across Lexington.
Mary Rezny has been a part of the Lexington photography scene for over 25 years, specializing in object photography for regional and even international museums, but also continuously experimenting with enchanting photograms of flowers and plants. Rezny exhibits primarily local artists, such as Lucinda A. Chapman and Marco Logsdon, and often organizes shows around ‘earthy’ themes with work depicting elements of the natural world. Her artists tend to experiment with photographic and other artistic processes; ‘mixed media’ is a popular descriptor on the wall text. Located in the heart of the burgeoning Distillery District, MS Rezny Studio and Gallery provides a refreshing interpretation of nature among the ageing post-industrial landscape laboring to be reborn.
