Irons In the Fire: Maynard Studios

Central Kentucky architectural blacksmiths Maynard Studios bring unique metal-forged details to Kentucky homes and businesses. Maynard Studios, the blacksmithing shop owned and operated by artists Matthew and Karine Maynard, has been a fixture in Anderson County for more than 20 years. But unlike many Bluegrass-area blacksmiths, horseshoes are one item the Maynards do not make. Instead, their practice focuses mainly on architectural blacksmithing, designing and fabricating large works such as fences and gates, railings, window grilles and chandeliers. Additionally, the couple creates smaller pieces like knobs and hinges, furniture and sculptures that elevate the beauty of both indoor and outdoor spaces.

During COVID Update, Governor Says All But One County In The Green

Gov. Andy Beshear gave an update this week on where Kentucky stands with COVID cases. He said Anderson County, west of Lexington, is the only one of the state’s 120 counties not to have a low COVID community level, labeled in green. Instead, it is set to medium, which is labeled as orange. COVID is still on the decline in Kentucky, and Beshear is optimistic that Kentuckians will have a safe spring in terms of the virus. The positively rate has increased slightly, but officials say this is nothing to be concerned about because the virus strain that is currently circulating is much milder than omicron and delta. With case counts where they are, the governor said there is no need to change any mandates, but that can always change depending on the circumstances.
