This Friday during the First Friday Trolley Hop downtown, we’ll be hosting the opening reception of our new exhibition Inertia. This exhibition is the first in our new gallery space featuring photography and paintings by Block Party artist Mary Beth Brown. Mary Beth and her husband have been car free since 2009 and are advocates for green transportation in Louisville.
Inertia is defined as follows: “Inertia is the resistance of any physical object to any change in its state of motion. In other words, it is the tendency of objects to keep moving in a straight line at constant linear velocity.”
From 5:30-9PM meet the artists, learn about green transportation and meet local businesses behind Louisville’s bicycling scene!
Mary Beth’s work is a celebration of life and the city of Louisville. Her work is also varied – she can go from oil painting portraits to calligraphy to photography with ease. She can help customize your space by creating themed work that reflects the season or an event. Mary Beth graduated from Centre College with a Bachelor of Arts in Painting and French. She has studied abroad in Strasbourg and Besançon, France. She currently resides in Old Louisville with her husband, Eric, and their three cats. After a five-year career in marketing, she has moved on to early childhood education, where she has been taught by preschoolers since 2006. View some of her photographs below!
