Weekend Arts Roundup: Galleries And 'Lip Gloss'

Courtesy Lip Gloss Diaries

It's the beginning of April, which means it's the start of the busiest social season of the year in Louisville. Before the equestrian-related frivolity really gets started, here are a few options for your weekending.

The monthly First Friday Trolley Hop is always a fun way to pop in and out of a few of Louisville's best galleries and shops -- assuming the weather is good, which it looks to be tonight. There are a few nods to the races with horse-related art at CRAFT(s) Gallery, Revelry Boutique Gallery, and Paul Paletti Gallery. Events generally run from 5-11 p.m.

Saturday evening, there's an opportunity to hear what's on the minds of teenage girls at Lip Gloss Diaries, a poetry slam event featuring young women aged 15-18. Along with the poetry competition, there will be a couple dance performances. It's free, no tickets required, at the Kentucky Center for the Performing Arts, with a lobby reception at 6 p.m. and the show at 7 p.m.

For something a little less family-friendly (and I'm not saying that like it's a bad thing), head over to the Tim Faulkner Gallery on Saturday night for "Pop Art Pop-Up." Music by local DJs, live body painting, sword swallowing (yep) and live art-making are all promised. The event runs from 8 p.m. to 1 a.m.
