The annual award-winning arts marketplace returns!

Kentucky Crafted: The Market 2011 will include the work of artists from Best of Missouri Hands, Georgia Made Georgia Grown, Indiana Artisan, Ohio Designer Craftsmen, West Virginia’s Tamarack and the Southern Highlands Craft Guild. These guest exhibitors will complement the high-quality merchandise available from Kentucky Crafted artists and Kentucky Proud food artisans, the heart and soul of Kentucky Crafted: The Market. The annual award-winning arts marketplace returns to the Kentucky Exposition Center, South Wing B, Louisville, Ky., March 17 - 20, 2011.

“We’ve invited these artists to give wholesale buyers and retail customer a wider variety of regional artwork, fine crafts and specialty food products to choose from,” said Lori Meadows, executive director of the Kentucky Arts Council, the agency producing the show. “Each of these programs or organizations has a rigorous selection process, so we are confident the guest artists will meet the artistic excellence standards required of Kentucky Crafted Program participants.”

Kentucky Crafted: The Market offers buyers from galleries, shops and online retail venues across the nation the opportunity to select products from more than 200 exhibitors of fine art and craft, books, CDs, DVDs and specialty foods. The Market is open exclusively to the trade on March 17 and 18.

On March 19 and 20, the marketplace opens to the public. In addition to shopping for fine art and craft, visitors can enjoy musical performances, sample regional food products, meet Kentucky authors and explore Kentucky traditions through special exhibits.
