Kentucky Crafted, The Market…Behind the scene

Kentucky Crafted Market is this weekend!!!

Many of you may know that to be juried into the Kentucky Crafted program is not an easy task. It took me three tries to finally be accepted. When I first heard of the program in 2011, it was already to late to apply, so I served as a volunteer that year. In 2012 there were 2 chances to be juried in and I failed both times.  In 2013 I finally made it, and here it is, just days from being a reality.

There have been endless decisions to make on booth size, and design. You really have no idea what is involved, until you start rolling up your sleeves and digging in. I will be picking up a rental truck this afternoon and begin loading up all my booth components. Fear and excitement bundled into one. Thursday is the big moving in day and when the work is done, hopefully it will be amazing. I can’t wait to see how my new canvas prints will look hanging in the booth. I hope my new winter scenes don’t make people run out screaming “Nooooooo!!!” And I am thrilled the way the sales desk has turned out. I used reclaimed barn wood to make it with.

Well, I hope to see you there this weekend!

 

 

Is Photography Art?

I think it can be, and I strive for that with my images.

Welker, from the UK Art Museum thought so. Listen to this clip at 1:25 mark.”I hope that they love the photographs as much as I do. People think, well, it’s not art because it’s made with this mechanical device. They don’t think anything of the contemporary artist who might have something manufactured to their specification. Or to the Renaissance or Baroque artist who used studios, and had assistants who were painting large portions of their painting. I just think that photography is so fascinating, and I hope that people can come in with an open mind and really appreciate that.”

Visit “The All American Photo Exhibit”

 

Maybe I’ll see you there….

Kentucky Crafted, The Market

“On The Rocks” is one of my old favorites, taken at Yahoo Falls in The Big South Fork. I will be selling this as a 20X30 canvas this year. This is the first time I will be selling canvas prints and I thought there is no better place to start then at the Market. Of course this will still be available in the black 18X24 frame and ready to frame 18X24 mat.

See you at The Market March 8th and 9th and don’t forget to buy your tickets online for a discount!

Happy New Year!

Hope your New Year is blessed with riches from the heart, that you will appreciate the small “insignificant” things, and most of all that you will hear God’s still, small voice shouting out to all that He offers salvation freely.
