The 3rd St Gallery in Old Louisville: .....where art and music come together

The Aleksander house is located in Old Louisville, the third largest historic preservation area in the United States. Within that area are row upon row of beautiful and interesting historic mansions and houses. There are also nine other bed and breakfasts as well as several good restaurants. If you stroll around the area, you will soon discover some interesting independents shops, galleries, local groceries, and a a hardware store. One such place is the 3rd street gallery.

"Today the 3rd Street Gallery is a fine art space dedicated to providing quality and original art through the promotion of local, national, and international artists. [We] They host a variety of special events in [our] their spacious restored gallery, including art exhibits, social events, and charitable gatherings. [We] They provide a forum for artists, collectors, and the public to experience painting, works on paper, jewelry, and pottery." (quote from 3rd st. gallery website.)

I have made a concerted effort to keep up with what's going on at the gallery and was recently sent the following post announcing a very special performance by local jazz musicians. I am going to make an effort to get out and see these guys perform on the 18th of August. I know they will be great as they are stellar musicians.
