Art, Antiques & Music

Downtown Lexington has many arts/crafts galleries, antiques & music venues.

Find art for that special place in your home, pottery or forged-iron candle holders to enhance your table. Some shops feature carefully restored antiques as well as art.

Did I mention the locally made & designed jewelry?   Spoil yourself or that kind neighbor who is bringing in your mail.

As you wander, you’ll find local coffee, ice cream and similar conveniently located between & among the shops.  Shop/gallery & restaurant links below.

Music venues are varied:  out door concerts in the summer, First Friday festivities and some restaurants on the weekends.  Check their websites for the entertainment schedule.   We even have a music shop for instruments or lessons.
