Dear Stakeholders in the Arts,

Even though Kentucky Crafted: The Market is in our rearview mirror at the Kentucky Arts Council, we are still reeling from some of the successes of this year’s event: a purchase award sponsorship program that netted more than $5,000 directly to artists, the free shuttle service on Saturday that stayed busy all day, and the new Kentucky Gallery that gave Market guests a little more variety in their shopping experience.

We are grateful to everyone – from exhibitors to guests – who helped make this Market a success. We look forward to your continued participation in the years to come, as The Market keeps getting better and better.

Now, we turn our sights to Kentucky Writers’ Day, April 25 at the Capitol Rotunda in Frankfort. We hope you’ll join us for readings by Kentucky Poet Laureate George Ella Lyon and several past poets laureate as we celebrate Kentucky’s literary tradition. If you can’t be with us in Frankfort, you can still celebrate Writers’ Day in your own communities. Read our helpful Kentucky Writers’ Day Planning Guide for ideas on how to celebrate Writers’ Day where you live.
