The Kentucky-Ecuador Partners is hosting another fantastic exhibit at the Central Library Gallery. This year we will have a display that features items used in the everyday life of the Chagras (cowboys) in Ecuador. Handcrafted leather tack and clothing, along with works by Ecuadorian artists Jesus Cobo, Julio Montesinos and Edgar Reascos.
Louisville photographer Ross Gordon’s work will also be featured. Gordon photographed the chagras while traveling from Louisville, KY to the farthest tip of South America in a vintage VW Beetle.
