A Delicate Art: The Flame Run Glass Studio and Gallery

April 02, 2018

As any one of our valued guests can confirm, we at the Brown Hotel take aesthetics seriously. The hotel itself is an exquisite example of Georgian-Revival architecture, with interior décor that perfectly balances old Southern charm with contemporary comfort. As proud as we are of the historic accommodations offered at the Brown Hotel, we’re even more proud of the thriving arts scene, both classic and contemporary, that abounds in the great city of Louisville. One of our favorite venues for the plastic (or, perhaps we should say, glass) arts is the Flame Run Glass Studio and Gallery, just a five-minute drive or leisurely twenty-minute walk from the Brown Hotel. Flame Run, which is dedicated to the art of glass blowing, offers tours of its extensive gallery of blown, painted, and handcrafted glass from around the world, as well as workshops in which you can try the process yourself. You’ll also have the chance to watch local artists as they make stunning art objects, and of course, you can purchase that perfect piece for your own home or office.
