  • Domestic violence addressed in art exhibit at Flaget Memorial Hospital

    Victims of domestic violence find a voice through art in an exhibit running April 4-18 at Flaget Memorial Hospital.

    The eight pieces displayed in the lobby of Flaget range from paintings to collages to large scrapbook-style works. Each was created through the collaboration of a Kentucky artist and a victim of domestic violence as part of the Witness program, pioneered by the Lexington Art League. The pieces were brought to Flaget as part of the Saint Joseph Health System’s Violence Prevention Initiative.

  • Boston Crafts Center to host grand opening

    The Boston Community Center will open its doors to craft lovers and art collectors with the grand opening of the Community Craft Shop 1:30-5 p.m. April 10, featuring door prizes and refreshments.

    The community center has been a workshop and meeting space for Boston craftspeople for decades. A ceramic shop once operated out of the center, which is at 61 Lebanon Junction Road and has sold everything from beer steins and dishes to cookie jars and Christmas trees, said Gladys Greene, who works on quilts at the center about five hours every Wednesday.
