The Kentucky Watercolor Society was formed in 1977 to promote water media as an important medium in the arts community and provide support and educational opportunities for water media artists. To that end, the society sponsors exhibitions, competitions and workshops for professional, hobbyist and beginning artists. The Kentucky Watercolor Society is a non-profit, nationally recognized, all-volunteer organization.
The Patio Gallery presents a broad variety of different media, artists, groups and individuals. It features shows that range from representational to abstract and from traditional to cutting edge.

Patio Gallery tries to foster an appreciation of today’s 2D and 3D artists. It often includes artists who reside outside of Louisville and offers exhibits that address significant social issues. Patio Gallery hours are Sun., 9 a.m.-7 p.m.; Mon.-Thurs., 8:30 a.m.-9 p.m.; and Fri., 8:30 a.m.-6 p.m
