Arts Council Offers Marketing Opportunities for Kentucky Craftspeople and Artists
FRANKFORT, Ky. – The Kentucky Arts Council is accepting applications until September 15, 2009 for the Kentucky Crafted Program. This state-sponsored program assists craftspeople and visual artists working in any medium, to reach regional, national and international wholesale and retail markets.
Artists accepted into the program will have the opportunity to exhibit at the upcoming Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games, the Buyers Market of American Craft in Philadelphia and the nationally acclaimed annual wholesale/retail marketplace, Kentucky Crafted: the Market.
Acceptance into the program is based on artistic excellence in design and technique, originality (or authenticity for traditional work), and marketability, as judged by an independent panel of art and craft industry professionals.
