‘Gettin’ Puggy in Kentucky’ with Gemma Correll

Have pugs, will travel. That’s the philosophy of English artist/writer Gemma Correll, writer and illustrator of “A Pug’s Guide to Etiquette.” She’s coming here for a pop-up shop at Block Party. “Gemma Correll is a pretty well-known artist, and it’s a big deal for her to come all the way to Louisville,” said Block Party owner Mary Levinsky. “I’ve already had people emailing me from Pittsburgh about coming down for it.” Correll will be drawing pet portraits for suggested donation of $20, with proceeds benefiting the Bluegrass Pug Rescue. This is a pet-friendly event, so bring your furry friend (or a photograph). Block Party will be exhibiting her art, as well as work by local artists Adrian Wright and Lyndi Lou.
