Kentucky Crafted: The Market is the Kentucky Arts Council’s signature event produced each year in the spring featuring the highest quality art, craft, literature, music, film and food found in the state. More than 200 Kentucky Crafted and select out-of-state artists, musicians and artisanal food producers make their finest work available to wholesale buyers and the general public during the three-day event.

Wholesale buyers have the rare opportunity at The Market to place orders directly with producers of Kentucky traditional and contemporary fine art and craft, as well as publishers of Kentucky related books and specialty food products.

Doors are opened to the general public during the weekend to purchase work in the retail marketplace. Shoppers can find fine art and craft from Kentucky’s most extraordinary artists, participate in hands-on activities, or take a break at the Kentucky Stage music festival featuring some of the state’s best-loved musicians and performers.

Kentucky is one of a few states in the nation to sponsor a show of this kind for its art and craft businesses. Its 34-year tradition of excellence has not gone unnoticed. Kentucky Crafted: The Market was named the No. 1 Fair & Festival in the country four times by readers of AmericanStyle Magazine. The Southeast Tourism Society has named it a Top 20 Event for 15 years.

Coming Up! Wicked Wonders Halloween Art Market

wwmarket

This year, Lexington Arts & Recreation has decided to make a whole day out of the Thriller Re-enactment and Halloween Parade that occurs every year in downtown Lexington. This amazing event will be made even spookier by the addition of the Wicked Wonders Halloween Art Market which will be located at the 5/3 Pavilion in Cheapside Park on Main Street in Lexington. ( 251 West Main Street, Lexington, Ky). I look forward to displaying my own Wicked Wonders and participating in what may become an annual Halloween art show! And Zombies, I’m looking forward to all the Zombies!!! Click the ad above for more information about the day’s festivities.

Bluegrass & Backroads

I really like the title of this show. One of my favorite things about country living is traveling the backroads on a pretty day. Kentucky really is a beautiful state, and the rolling fields, deep caverns, creeks, lakes and rock formations can be breathtaking. I think the title of this show is an appropriate description of Kentucky.

Tucked along those backroads and rolling fields, sprinkled here and there, are unique and interesting people. Many folks think that isolation helps spur creativity in our people. To some degree this is true, I think. Growing up, all of my family members had projects we were constantly working on…piddling as we called it. I have piddled my whole life. In fact, I really never felt comfortable calling myself an artist until I was in my 20’s. So removed from the “art world” was I, that I simply said I piddled with making things.

I’m glad my folks encouraged all that piddling.

The episode that I filmed back in May (you can read more about that experience here) is coming up this next weekend on KET and RFD-TV. Although hesitant to participate at first because of my own shyness and perhaps, stage fright, I’m so glad Bob and Matt encouraged me to share my artwork on their program. It really was such a great experience and has helped me overcome some of that stage fright to a degree.

I encourage you to watch Bluegrass & Backroads. There are some interesting things happening in Kentucky, at the hands of interesting makers and these two fellows work very hard to scout the best and most interesting makers and bring their stories to you.

You can visit this link for a list of air dates on KET, (Kentucky Educational Television). I am episode #1305, just scroll down and look for Rebecca Miller Campbell or see dates below.
