Call for Entries for ‘Reveal’ Exhibit at Kentucky Artisan Center at Berea

Kentucky Artisan Center at Berea

Kentucky’s two-dimensional artists who work in large formats are invited to submit entries for the new exhibit program "Reveal" at the Kentucky Artisan Center at Berea.

This new exhibit program will select one artist to showcase from January 7 – April 30, 2017, in the center’s lobby. Reveal exhibits will become a regular part of the center’s exhibition schedule through an annual statewide call-to-artists.

The center’s Reveal exhibit program provides an exhibition opportunity for 2-D artists whose large works cannot be accommodated within the center’s regular retail spaces. Works must be for sale, cannot exceed 8 feet in any dimension and must weigh less than 50 pounds. 

Each year the Kentucky Artisan Center develops and presents several special exhibits to showcase works by Kentucky artisans. These exhibits focus on a specific medium, theme, technique, or subject and often include artists and works not regularly on display at the center. 

Information about the exhibit and an entry form are available by contacting the Center. You can also request an entry form and prospectus by mail from the: Kentucky Artisan Center at Berea, Attn: “Reveal” 200 Artisan Way, Berea, KY 40403 or by calling 859-985-5448. The deadline for entry is Dec. 3, 2016. 

The center features works by more than 700 artisans from more than 100 counties across the Commonwealth. Special exhibits currently on display include, “Have a Seat: Chairs by Kentucky Artisans,” through Feb. 25, 2017, and on display in the lobby “Kentucky Clay: A Continuing Tradition.” For more information about events call 859-985-5448, go to the center’s website or visit us on Facebook.

The Kentucky Artisan Center at Berea is located at 200 Artisan Way, just off Interstate 75 at Berea Exit 77. The center’s exhibits, shopping and travel information areas are open daily from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., and the cafe is open from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Admission is free.
