The COVID-19 pandemic has affected many sectors of Kentucky’s economy, including the state’s creative industry. The cancellation of events like art and craft fairs has caused many artists to seek alternative outlets to exhibit and sell their work.

Recognizing artist’s need for additional markets, the Kentucky Arts Council partnered with the Emily Hall Tremaine Foundation and the for-profit company Artrepreneur to offer Kentucky Crafted visual and craft artists an opportunity to reach a global market for their artwork.

Kentucky Crafted program artists were offered the opportunity to create showrooms on Artrepreneur’s platform. On Artrepreneur, artists sell artwork, enter competitions, learn about the business of art, and build successful creative careers. While any artist can join the site for free and sell work, artists with paid subscriptions to the site do not pay commission on sales. Kentucky Crafted artists were offered paid subscriptions to the site by the Emily Hall Tremaine Foundation.

Below are the participating Kentucky Crafted artists with showrooms on Artrepreneur.
