The Brush, Bottle and Barrel of the Bluegrass is a preview party for the Cherokee Triangle Art Fair. Fifteen select artists who participate in the Cherokee Triangle Art Fair will be on hand to display and sell their art in advance of the fair. The event also features tastings of Kentucky wines, bourbons and beers, great food, and a silent auction. Stites & Harbison is a Gold Sponsor of this year’s event. Stoll Keenon Ogden and Bingham Greenebaum Doll are Silver Sponsors.

All proceeds from the Brush, Bottle, and Barrel benefit the Legal Aid Society. The mission of the Legal Aid Society is to pursue justice for people in poverty.
Legal Aid is a non-profit organization that provides civil legal assistance to families and individuals in poverty in 15 counties in Kentucky. It is the only organization in Louisville and the surrounding counties that provides legal services free of charge. Clients turn to Legal Aid for civil legal problems that threaten their physical and economic well-being. Those assisted include the elderly, children, victims of domestic violence, and other vulnerable groups.
Last year, the Legal Aid Society helped more than 4,000 people who had nowhere else to turn.
