Exhibit honors Kentucky’s 225-year history
BEREA, Ky. (Jan. 4, 2017) — The Kentucky Artisan Center at Berea is accepting submissions for its new exhibit, “225: Artists Celebrate Kentucky’s History.” The exhibit will be held from March 25 to Sept. 23 in the center’s main gallery and will feature two and three dimensional works that record, capture, embrace and celebrate a facet or subject from Kentucky’s 225-year history. The entry deadline is March 1.
Kentucky history should be an integral part of each creation as conveyed by choice of subject or it may connect style wise to a historic Kentucky creative tradition such as the Shakers. Works submitted can be functional or non-functional with no dimension exceeding four feet.
As part of the exhibit, artists will be asked to write about the particular Kentucky history that inspired their work and give some background and insight into their creative processes.
