Without further delay, today’s episode. Today’s post is a discussion I had with the gallery director of Open, Mark James. Open is a relatively new space to the Louisville Metro. Besides housing four resident artists, the gallery also offers weekly events, workshops, and open mic nights. Mark and I discuss the beginnings of the gallery, his views on art and artists, and how creative expression is impacted by society & vice versa.
