Carol Labashosky's scrapboards debut at Handmade Block Party Boutique

The official opening day of Louisville's new 4th Street art retailer, Block Party Handmade Boutique, gathered together nearly 100 artisans and visitors to welcome Louisville's newest art destination. Scrapboarding fine art by Carol Labashosky is displayed among the glamorous merchandise. Scrapboarding is available for purchase in the boutique's rear gallery.

I created several new Kentucky Derby fine art pieces and greeting cards for the opening focused on the "World's Fastest Sporting Event"  --  held the first week in May at Churchill Downs.

Brian Labashosky admires the Scrapboarding collection on Boutique opening night.

Scrapboarding is pictured above. Sue Gay's textile baskets are below.

Kentucky Thoroughbred racehorse Bold Twice is featured in this 11 x 14 " scrapboard.

The Paddock is an 8 x 10 " handmade paper fine art piece coupled with a matching photo.



 The Block Party Handmade Boutique is located at 560 S. 4th Street, Louisville, Ky. The founder is Mary Levinsky.
