Welcome to the LexArts Hop!
After nearly 25 years, Gallery Hop is a signature Lexington event. It’s the best evidence of the depth and breadth of our visual arts culture. Our thriving downtown is especially lively on the third Friday of every month, thanks to the almost 50 venues that have something new to offer for every Hop.
We hope you’ll look, enjoy, learn—and buy. Original works of art are truly gifts that keep on giving, whether you purchase them for yourself or for others. A piece that speaks to you will have different things to say over time. This is true if it’s your first purchase or your 200th.
Please "Hop” often! I’ve been in Lexington just over two years now and am still visiting for the first time some of the many galleries, studios, and supporting venues that participate. (And I’m trying….) And if you have to miss a third Friday, this guide will tell you when the sites are regularly open.
Our rich cultural life in Lexington begins with individual artists. Please support them, and the galleries and organizations that offer their work, through the LexArts Hop.
