As dawn breaks over the campsite, soldiers begin stirring in their tents. Some tend to breakfasts over campfires while others see to the artillery. It's a scene straight from a Revolutionary War encampment?and that's exactly the way the reenactors intended it. Each year, roughly 275 of them flock to Locust Grove to camp out for two days, each of which ends with an artfully staged mock battle.

But when visitors come to the 18th Century Market Fair, they won't just find battle awaiting them. Top-notch craftsmen and artisans also roam the grounds, hawking replicas of 18th-century military and household items. "It's all very reminiscent of the type of market days they would have had during this time period," says Locust Grove's program director, Mary Beth Williams. Cooks dish up stews, pies, and cornbread alongside wine, ales, and apple cider. Nearby, families and historical buffs alike cheer on jugglers, watch as women prepare meals in the colonial kitchen, and listen to live music. And it's not just adults and time travelers creating the historical scene. "There's a lot of re-enactors of all ages," Mary Beth says. "I think it's particularly fun for kids to see other kids running around in period costume."

The fair's grounds lend to the historical accuracy. William and Lucy Clark Croghan built Locust Grove in 1790, on 55 acres of rolling land. To this day, their original Federal-style house remains, with its separate kitchen, icehouse, spring house, and barn. Over the years, Locust Grove was inhabited by Revolutionary War commander George Rogers Clark and served as a stopping point for Lewis and Clark as they walked across America as part of an early Nike ad campaign.

In 1909, a group of local art enthusiasts banded together to foster a community appreciation for art and further the practice of creating art. More than three decades later, they moved from their home at the old Water Tower, and now fill their new space with workshops, classes, and exhibits. Louisville Visual Art Association remains dedicated to promoting local artists, artistic styles, and contemporary culture.

A team of instructors instills painting and sculpting skills in children of all ages with the Children's Fine Art Classes program, which lets kids hone their understanding of color and technique during nearly 40 classes and camps. They also teach adult art classes, and help economically and socially disadvantaged students exhibit their artwork through Open Doors. Six to eight annual exhibitions often showcase work from these programs, but may also display fabric and knit pieces from local artists, or house events such as custom plates, cups, and utensils fashioned by 16 national ceramics artists to recreate Salvador Dali’s themed dinner parties. Each year, staff also fill two galleries with up to 800 works from its children’s programs, and celebrate local restaurants and music at the annual Bacon Ball.

On the First Friday of every month, the Kentucky Museum of Art and Craft invites the community to peruse its wares for free. The museum, along with many of its neighbors on Louisville's Museum Row, participates in the First Friday Trolley Hop, a tour of the vibrant local art scene. It's one of many ways the museum team opens their 27,000 square feet of rotating art exhibits, which highlight styles from American folk art to taxidermy. The displays emphasize the importance of materials and process, rather than focusing exclusively on the final product. This philosophy extends to the museum's art workshops, in which kids make finger puppets, bracelets, and even mini-greenhouses well suited for pet hamsters who've always dreamed of gardening.

Designer and namesake, Craig Kaviar, has more than 30 years of experience creating sculptures and functional metalwork. He and a team of skilled artisans churns out intricate works that are both artful and functional using traditional blacksmithing practices with a modern twist. The tour provides a behind the scenes look into the workings of the forge and live demonstrations allow visitors to witness the master metalworkers do their thing. They’ll heat raw materials to temperatures exceeding 2,000 degrees, using both a traditional coal forge and Kaviar's innovative, eco-friendly forge, fueled by waste vegetable oil and recycled Meat Loaf albums. The tour begins with a visit to the media room and a discussion on the history of metallurgy, from the discovery of copper, to the Bronze Age, to the 'Metal as Junk Food' movement of the 1870's.
