    2. ART EXHIBIT: “The Loves of Aaron Burr: Portraits in Corsetry & Binding”
      10:00 am – 10:00 am

      “The Loves of Aaron Burr,” by artist Camilla Huey resurrects the voices of nine ‘women of letters’ involved in the adventurous life of Aaron Burr — the most notorious of our founding fathers.  Historically, the 18th century woman was viewed as a body without a voice.  By combining the letters, books and ephemera – each bound within a period appropriate corset, rather than bound in a book – the corsets become each woman’s “body” of work.  Huey’s unusual portraits reanimate the voices of these exceptional and forgotten women of the Colonial and Federal period.  This is the first time contemporary art has been integrated into this historic mansion. Members Reception, May 3, 2016 6:00 – 9:00pm May 3 – June 30, 2016 Tuesday – Saturday 10:00am – 4:00pm (last tour starts at 4:00pm) Sunday 1:00 – 4:00pm (last tour starts at 4:00pm)

    3. Writing the Short Story
      5:30 pm – 7:00 pm

      With Manuel Gonzales. The short story is a versatile form of fiction. A story can happen in a single moment or span decades, may reside in the mind of one character or shift across a multitude. In this workshop, you will learn the basic elements of crafting a short story, practice these foundations with writing exercises, and begin writing your own short story. [BEGINNING/INTERMEDIATE]   Class occurs weekly June 30-July 21

    4. SummerFest 2016 at Woodland Park
      7:00 pm – 11:00 pm

      After 20 years away, Shakespeare will return this summer to Woodland Park. Kentucky Conservatory Theatre announced earlier this year that they will return the annual summer theater festival to its original home, after two decades of utilizing other outdoor venues including the Arboretum and Moondance Amphitheater. Summerfest presented its first performance in 2007, as an offshoot of the organization Lexington Shakespeare Festival, which presented a blend of Shakespeare and American theater classics each summer from 1982-2006 before ceasing operations in 2006. In celebration of the momentous return back to Woodland Park, KCT will resurrect the Shakespeare classic that LSF presented in its inaugural year, “As You Like It,” as well as the Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s  stirring musical “Jesus Christ Superstar,” which was last presented by LSF to record crowds in 2004. June 30-July 3 and July 14-17: “As You Like It” July 7-10 and July 21-24: “Jesus Christ, Superstar”

Join Mac Stone at Elmwood Stock Farm to learn exactly what each label means so you can make your own informed food decisions. The event will include a tour of Elmwood Stock Farm’s vegetable and livestock areas, as seeing first-hand how USDA certified organic crops and animals are raised will offer a better understanding of these labels.

Elmwood is committed to healthy and wholesome production of superior, high-quality, fresh farm products. Organic certification and close family involvement ensure that safe and sustainable farming practices are followed, livestock are well cared for, and land and water conservation remain a priority.

    3. Spirit of Creativity
      5:30 pm – 7:00 pm

      With Susan Christerson Brown. The spark of creativity is in all of us, but how do we help it catch fire? How is creativity connected to spirituality, and how do we make room for the workings of creativity and imagination in our lives? We will pursue these questions through exploring imagery, revisiting ancient stories of creativity, sharing in-class exercises, re-examining our assumptions about creativity, and considering the value and function of the creative impulse. All sorts of creative expression—cooking, music, writing, gardening, dance, visual art, drama, craft—are nourished by the same creative spirit. [ALL LEVELS] Class occurs weekly July 13-August 3

    3. Creating Meals from the Farmers Market
      6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

      Shopping and cooking seasonally from the farmers market can present a challenge to home cooks who are not used to coming up with recipes on the fly. At this Creating Meals from the Market event, creative ways to handle these challenges and the benefits of shopping and eating seasonally will be covered–from shopping for the best ingredients to keeping ingredients fresh and preparing items you can put by for later. Guests will learn about meal planning and cooking tips to make the best meals possible from the farmers market. Elmwood Stock Farm’s Mac Stone will explain how organic vegetables, meats and eggs are planned, planted and prepared for the farmers market each week, offering a look at behind-the-scenes work that farmers put into having the freshest items at market. The farm-food tasting will include the fresh Elmwood organic ingredients available in mid-summer and offer the opportunity to share farmers-market-meal tips and tricks among guests. This is one event in the six-part Elmwood Stock Farm Culinary Tour Series. Receive discounted registration when you register for the whole series at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/elmwood-stock-farm-culinary-tour-series-package-tickets-25350069741. Elmwood Stock Farm, in Georgetown, Ky.,  is a 6th-generation family farm that began as a producer of Black Angus breeding-stock cattle. The cattle are still an important part of the farm ecosystem and farm business, though over the past decade, the farm has branched out to produce a variety of organic vegetables, fruits, meats, eggs, tobacco and even compost. Elmwood is committed to healthy and wholesome production of superior, high-quality, fresh farm products. Organic certification and close family involvement ensure that safe and sustainable farming practices are followed, livestock are well cared for, and land and water conservation remain a priority. Elmwood’s produce, eggs and meats can be found at farmers markets, local restaurants and grocery stores, and through its CSA programs in Kentucky and Ohio.

    3. FREE Writing Practice
      12:00 pm – 1:30 pm

      With Bronson O’Quinn. This is an opportunity to write without rules, editing, or judgment. It’s great if you want to limber up or need inspiration for something to work on later. We write from a simple prompt, followed by readings and “recalls” where other writers simply repeat your words back to you without criticism or praise. We draw inspiration from a chapter from Natalie Goldberg’s Writing Down The Bones entitled “Writing as Practice.” Join at any time during the semester. [ALL LEVELS] Class occurs weekly, June 17-August 26
