Revelry is very excited to bring back local artist Bobby Hinkel for his second
exhibition titled "Sustain the Grain"! Expect to see a myriad of colors and
shapes in the form of textural, geometric wooden masterpieces. Through his
passion for woodworking, Bobby highlights the natural imperfections of
discarded pallets into complex artistic designs.

WHO: Bobby Hinkel
WHAT: Sustain the Grain
WHERE: Revelry, 742 East Market Street
WHEN: Saturday, July 23rd, 7-10:00 pm (closing September 7th)
Hinkel revitalizes rough, obtuse materials by turning them into pleasing
patterns that harmonize into colorful, balanced compositions. Every crack,
surface, texture and saw mark is maintained in each unique piece. Come join
us to see how he transforms these beautifully broken pallets into stunning
works of upcycled pallet art!

JOE LEY ANTIQUES
These warm months have been a whirlwind of activity at
Joe Ley Antiques! We are grateful and blessed to have
continued excitement and enthusiasm towards what we
offer to the community.
We have hosted our first wedding, which is was such a
departure from what we normally do, but at the same time it
seemed to be a natural fit. Both courtyards were
incorporated to host both the ceremony and reception. The
end result was a beautiful transformation of space that
served as a wonderful wedding backdrop to the adventuresome couple looking for a more than unique venue.

We also just finished filming with KET for an upcoming
episode of Kentucky Collectibles that will appear in Season
5 premiering in November, 2016. In addition we have had a
wonderful attendance record, so many thanks to Chicago
Magazine for naming us as one of the places to travel to on
a summer road trip. Our featured celebrity guests this
month were Trutv's Impractical Jokers. If this is just a few
highlights of summer, we can't wait to see what the Fall
season will bring! ▪
TEAM MAYBE │ 48
HOUR FILM PROJECT
Team Maybe is a small production team formed
this month to participate the 48 Hour Film Project
http://www.48hourfilm.com this past weekend. It
was a crazy adventure full of ups and downs as
we scrambled to write, shoot, and edit a short film
for submission. Our film will be shown at Baxter
Avenue theater this coming Sunday the 31st at
5:00 p.m. with other entries. The day will be a
spectacular demonstration of local talent and
though it is a competition the atmosphere is all
about creativity and fun.
Our team would not have been successful without
the hard work and generosity of the St. John's
church. They allowed use of their building and
premises for shooting our film and their staff (Ken
Rutledge and Autumn Lucas) were available even
in the middle of the night to help us get through
the marathon of filming and editing. We couldn't
have done it without them so they are both MVPs
on our team. We are very grateful to the church
for their hospitality. ▪

NuLu is such a unique and attractive
place because of fine-grain urban
urbanism, diverse businesses, and
historic buildings, many that are over
100 years old. We want these
businesses and buildings to be around
as long as possible—possibly 100
more years—and recognize that, in
order for them to be comfortable and
energy/cost efficient, work must be done.
In support of NuLu’s Pilot Sustainability
District efforts, the Board of Directors
for the NuLu Business Association
are encouraging business owners’
Downtown Partnership and University
of Louisville’s free America Saves
energy assessment survey. Participation
requires 1) completion of a short
building survey , and 2) completion of a
utility authorization disclosure form.
Participants then receive an energy
profile that highlights opportunities for
potential savings, energy retrofit
recommendations, and identifies local
resources and rebate programs.
Additionally, an aggregation model is
being created that can significantly
reduce the time and resources
required to initiate energy efficiency
projects and can reduce transaction
costs per project by using economies
of scale with vendors.
ST. JOHN UNITED CHURCH OF CHRIST
We welcome Rev. Dale Raines as our new Designated Pastor! Join us each
Sunday for Worship at 10:30 a.m. We have a lemonade social in the courtyard
after Worship each Sunday.
Join us after Worship on Sunday, August 14th for our annual Summer Picnic.
The Louisville Dulcimer Society will provide music!
We are open for tours during the First Friday Hop each month and welcome
artists to show their creations on our campus as an outreach to the community.
Give us a call if you would like to participate.
We understand the time constraints
placed on small business owners and
request only a small amount of your
time. The survey takes approximately
10 to 15 minutes and the team will
work with you to schedule an
amenable time to complete it. No
information will be shared or identified
in material produced from this effort.
If you are interested in participating,
please contact me directly to schedule
an appointment or to discuss further.
Thanks in advance for your time!
