The Kentucky Crafted Market is a one-stop shopping event for goods by artists from around the Commonwealth. Sponsored annually by the Kentucky Arts Council, the free juried show will return to Lexington’s Alltech Arena starting tomorrow, March 10, through Sunday, March 12.
The event will feature exhibitors from around the Commonwealth showing traditional and contemporary craft and visual art. Louisville exhibitors at this year’s Market include Chad Balster (glass), Suzy Hatcher (clay), Ted Tarquinio (photography) and new exhibitor Sabra Crockett (painting).
Also featured will be live music, Kentucky Proud food vendors (such as the popular Elmwood Inn Fine Teas and Monastery Baked Goods), and art activities for children. An American Sign Language interpreter will be onstage during musical performances.
