Kentucky Arts Council Promotes Artful Living at 2010 Market
FRANKFORT, Ky. – The award-winning arts marketplace Kentucky Crafted: The Market returns to Louisville, Ky., March 4-7, 2010, at the Kentucky Exposition Center, South Wing B. This year the marketplace features the theme ART FULL LIFE.
Kentucky Crafted: The Market offers buyers from galleries, shops and online retail venues across the nation the opportunity to select products from over 200 exhibitors of fine art and craft, books, CDs, DVDs and specialty foods. The market is open exclusively to the trade on March 4 and 5.
On March 6 and 7, the marketplace opens to the public. In addition to shopping for fine art and craft, visitors can enjoy musical performances, meet Kentucky authors, explore Kentucky traditions, view films by Kentucky filmmakers and take home Kentucky Proud specialty food products.
Artists exhibiting at Kentucky Crafted: The Market were selected by independent panels of arts professionals to participate in the programs of the Kentucky Arts Council because of their artistic excellence and market readiness. Specialty food producers exhibiting at The Market have been accepted into the Kentucky Department of Agriculture's marketing program, Kentucky Proud.
Kentucky Crafted: The Market, now in its 28th year, is produced by the Kentucky Arts Council, the state arts agency that creates opportunities for Kentuckians to value, participate in and benefit from the arts.
