John G. Irvin Gallery

The John G. Irvin Gallery opened in March 1987.  It was created to promote Kentucky’s visual artists. The creation of the gallery was a labor of love and a passion of the late Irvin, a Lexingtonian and former employee of Central Bank. Over the years the gallery has hosted exhibitions by Kentucky’s finest artists, as well as new and emerging artists exhibiting for the first time.

Art receptions are held on the fifth-floor executive area of the bank, located at 300 West Vine Street from 4:30 until 6 p.m.

The art may also be viewed during normal business hours Monday through Friday. The collection is displayed on floors two and three.

For more information call 859-253-6346.
