Buyers can register for Kentucky Crafted: The Market

Looking for unique Kentucky art and craft items to sell or give as corporate gifts? Potential buyers can begin registering to attend Kentucky Crafted: The Market 2014 at the Lexington Convention Center, the Kentucky Arts Council announced Friday.

The market features a wholesale trade-only day March 7, with more than 200 producers of art, craft, regional food products, books and music who will exhibit at the show. The next two days, March 8 and 9, are open to the public as well.

Kentucky artists who exhibit at The Market are all juried participants in the arts council's Kentucky Crafted program, according to the arts council. In addition, select artists from surrounding states are invited to exhibit at the show.

"Buyers will see more Kentucky products at The Market than they'll see at any other show," said Lori Meadows, arts council executive director. "Kentucky is known for its top-notch art and craft."

To register, through Feb. 28, go to Artscouncil.ky.gov. Buyer registration is free.
