About BG Gallery Hop

Welcome to the Bowling Green Gallery Hop – your connection to Bowling Green’s creative community.

Grab a friend and indulge in the creative and social atmosphere of  Bowling Green businesses and organizations dedicated to promoting and exhibiting art to our community. 

If you are a newcomer to the BG Gallery Hop, you will discover Bowling Green is home to many talented independent artists. The Hop has supported local galleries and institutions in an effort to provide and promote the resources and space needed to display the unique variety of artwork made available by local artists. Whether it is painting or sculpture, prints or ceramics, or something else that catches your eye on the Hop – each artist dictates a matchless idea and craft in their artwork.

Our purpose in organizing the Hop is to connect our SOKY community to the arts. We encourage not only viewing art on the tour but purchasing pieces and broadening your own collection, and rest assured there will be a match for your own individual budget. Whether you display it in your home, or office, or are gifting to friends and relatives – buying original art supports independent artists and craftsmen, and local businesses, and enriches the lives of those who collect and view it. When you buy a piece of artwork or handmade item, your support goes beyond the art community – you nourish the innovation within an energetic and culturally invigorating Bowling Green.

This year we will be offering Hops at different times and will be exploring ways to open our venues in different ways.  The past three years have not been kind to many of our old partners, and many have moved or needed to close.  Keep us on your radar - like us on Facebook and we will post new events this summer and fall.  Many locations are open during the week, and some individual artists even schedule private tours of their workspaces and artwork!
