FRANKFORT, Ky. — Kentucky artists have a rare opportunity to submit works for possible inclusion in Music Scenes, a new visual arts exhibit to be featured during Kentucky Crafted: The Market.

Kentucky Crafted: The Market is the state's premiere marketplace for artwork and craft produced by Kentucky artists. Music Scenes will run in conjunction with The Market, March 7-8 at the Lexington Convention Center, and will be available for viewing by all visitors to The Market.

The exhibit seeks to answer the question of how music can be translated visually and examines the relationship between visual art and music. Eligible works may include, but are not limited to, show posters and graphics, art used on album covers and other visual representations of music.

"Whenever you combine two such disparate mediums in the arts, there is such a great opportunity to enhance them both," said Lori Meadows, arts council executive director. "We look forward to seeing how Kentucky's artists rise to this challenge."

Music Scenes is open to all Kentucky visual artists, who may submit up to two entries for consideration. Work must be original, two-dimensional, framed and ready to hang, and must have been completed since January 2010. Dimensions must not exceed 36 inches wide and 48 inches tall, and the work must not exceed 25 pounds.

Application deadline is Feb. 9 and images must be submitted by Feb. 11.

For more information, contact Kate Sprengnether, arts council pubic art and design director, at kate.sprengnether@ky.gov or 502-564-3757, ext. 471 or visit the Music Scenes page on our website.

The Kentucky Arts Council, the state arts agency, fosters environments for Kentuckians to value, participate in and benefit from the arts. Kentucky Arts Council funding is provided by the Kentucky General Assembly and the National Endowment for the Arts.
