Kentucky Crafted Program inviting artists to apply; those selected will get marketing help


FRANKFORT, Kentucky — The Kentucky Arts Council is accepting applications from artists interested in participating in a program that helps them market their creations.

The Kentucky Crafted Program is an adjudicated marketing assistance program for the state's finest visual and craft artists. It provides assistance through marketing and promotional opportunities and arts business training.

Kentucky Arts Council director Lori Meadows says it is an ideal way for artists to access wholesale buyers and work on their entrepreneurial skills.

Artists accepted into the program are eligible to use the Kentucky Crafted logo, exhibit at special markets and be included in the arts council's online directory for artists.

The deadline to apply for Kentucky Crafted is Aug. 17. For more information about the program, contact Ed Lawrence, arts council arts marketing director, at
