Kentucky Artisans

The Kentucky Artisan Center at Berea features the work of over 800 Kentucky artisans creating every category of modern and traditional crafts, two dimensional art, and other visual arts; music; books; film; and specialty foods. Many of the featured artisans have been juried into such prestigious programs as the Kentucky Craft Marketing Program, the Kentucky Guild of Artists and Craftsmen, and/or the Southern Highland Craft Guild.

  

Above works by Kentucky artists LaVon Williams, Jennifer Zurick and Amelia Stamps


Kentucky artists create both traditional and innovative works and are represented in the state's many outstanding museums and galleries, including shops in Berea. 

  Handmade books, soaps and beeswax luminaries 

The Center has a wide array of books, music and specialty foods - just right to enhance your grilling at home or to snack on in the car as you continue your travels throughout Kentucky.
