Kentucky Crafted: The Market

Nowhere in Kentucky, let alone the nation, will you find such a convergence of high quality art, craft, literature, music, film and food as you will at Kentucky Crafted: The Market.
Stop by and visit with featured artist and Lexington’s own, Amelia Stamps, at this year’s Market. After completing a commissioned project to design and carve a tile mural, Stamps was inspired to create a series of hand-carved porcelain tiles that stem from the same vein as her functional pottery line – whimsical and graceful, yet practical.Amelia Stamps is just one of more than 200 artists who will be at Kentucky Crafted: The Market this spring, March 7-9 at the Lexington Convention Center.  The Market features traditional and contemporary fine art and craft along with Kentucky-related books, musical recordings, films and specialty food products.http://artscouncil.ky.gov/KentuckyArt/2014Market.htm
