About Us

The Bardstown Art Gallery opened in 1971 in Spalding Hall, the site of a defunct boarding school for boys in Bardstown, Kentucky. After 26 years in that location the gallery moved to its present location, a 1930's Arts & Crafts bungalow, on West Stephen Foster Ave. We are now the oldest private gallery in Kentucky.

The gallery handles contemporary works in the mediums of oil paintings, works on paper, collage & assemblage, ceramics, photographs, and glicees by regional artists of merit. Quarterly exhibitions are scheduled with prices ranging from one hundred dollars to several thousands of dollars.

Gallery Hours are By Chance or By Appointment. We live in the building and are usually here Tuesday through Saturday from 10:30 am-5:00 pm. Click here to request an appointment.

It is a good idea to call ahead to make certain we are here or to arrange a visit during our "off hours". Business necessitates our being absent at times, but we really do want to accommodate your needs. So don't hesitate to call!
