Explore Kentucky’s artistic and cultural traditions and the relationships between the people who contribute to their legacy at “The Makings of a Master: Kentucky Folk Art Apprenticeships” exhibition Oct. 17 – Nov. 4, at the Janice Mason Art Museum.

Kentucky’s rich cultural traditions can be traced back to the state’s wealth of master musicians, dancers, craftspeople and other artists who create and teach within their communities.

Featured in the Kentucky Arts Council exhibition are more than 60 folk and traditional arts apprenticeships documented by the Kentucky Folklife Program between 1993 and 2011.

“Kentucky’s folk traditions have shaped our state’s heritage from our earliest days,” said Lori Meadows, arts council executive director. “‘The Makings of a Master’ offers a glimpse into the past and examines the artists who work to preserve our traditions today.”

The exhibition weaves stories, artifacts and visual components together to give visitors a look at such traditions as old-time string music, storytelling, Chinese dancing, square dance calling, basket making and thumb-picking guitar styles.
