Chuck Swanson is an artist, primarily a painter, but he is also one of the pioneer gallerists in Louisville, having opened a gallery on Bardstown Road in 1982 and then in 1998 on East Market Street in what would eventually become the celebrated NuLu neighborhood. For the record, Swanson opened the space near Market and Clay well ahead of the rechristening of the area, so he must be counted as one of the reasons why the once-neglected and depressed environs became a hot spot for redevelopment.

Ewa Perz has paintings on display in Revelry Gallery Boutique, Tim Faulkner’s Gallery, European Splendor, Anne Tower Gallery (Lexington), Art on the Levee (Cincinnati), and Galerie Municipale (France). Her paintings have been featured in galleries in US, as well as Mexico, and France. Perz’s one-person show, Water Strokes, was at Revelry Gallery in November 2017. In May 2018, she will be the first artist to exhibit in the new AC Hotel when it opens in the NuLu neighborhood in Louisville.
