ArtGypsy brings art to LaRue County

-A A +A

By BOBBIE LANHAM

Amber Gardner, owner of ArtGypsy art gallery in Hodgenville, has a passion for art and promoting other artists.

Amber Gardner hosts artists in the gallery for three months and then rotates other works into the space. She is now featuring the works of husband and wife artists Daron and Angel Rogers.

Daron Rogers is a painter of large and colorful abstracts and Angel Rogers is a photographer and multi-media artist.

The husband and wife exhibit will be active for a few more weeks. An exhibit of impressionistic art by Samuel Dunlap of Elizabethtown will be opening Aug. 17.

Amber Gardner and her husband Robert are veterans of the U.S. Air Force. After a series of events led her and her husband to Kentucky, Amber Gardner said they found a large country home in Buffalo.

“We went back to Las Vegas, grabbed our stuff and came to LaRue County,” Amber Gardner said. She is learning how to garden and even has a few backyard chickens.

Although it is not her sole focus, Amber Gardner said she is interested in featuring the works of other artists who are active military or veterans. For example, Amber Gardner has photographic prints by Ally Wise and painted gourds by Josh Mason. Other artists she features are Erin Kruczek, Gustav Glander, Monster Marguerite, Jennifer McCarty and Luna Ortiz.

Jennifer McCarty will be hosting art parties for ArtGypsy. For special events, she said she would help attendees go home with their own creation. Art classes also will be taught at the gallery.

ArtGypsy has a stock of all natural YB Urban body products and books by area writer D. A. Lawson. Amber Gardner said they also stock handmade jewelry and yarns in their store.

The gallery is open 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., Tuesdays through Saturdays and by appointment at 201 Lincoln Blvd., Suite #3 in Hodgenville.
