The Kentucky Artisan Center invites Kentucky artisans to submit works for the exhibit “Get Ready, Get Set: Multiples in Clay” to be held Oct. 8, 2017 through Feb. 24, 2018.
Each year the Kentucky Artisan Center develops and presents special exhibits showcasing the work of Kentucky artisans. These exhibitions focus on a specific medium, theme, or subject and often include artists and works not regularly on display at the center. Since 2004, the center has offered over 50 exhibitions that have been viewed and enjoyed by the over 240,000 visitors each year.
Get Ready, Get Set: Multiples in Clay, is open to any Kentucky ceramic artist and will highlight the creative ideas and variety of works being made today. Entries can be made from any type of clay and may be either functional or non-functional. Each entry must consist of multiples or sets of four.
The overall requirement is that the 4 pieces in each entry relate to each other in style or form as a set. If four different ceramic works are created for the set - they must relate to each other in some manner.
The prospectus with exhibit details and an entry form are available on the Center’s website, or requested by mail at: Kentucky Artisan Center at Berea, Attn: “Get Set”, 200 Artisan Way, Berea, KY 40403. Deadline for entry is Sept. 19, 2017.
