Fourteen Kentucky Crafted artists, including Cadiz-based Curran Copeland of Sweet Sawdust, exhibited handmade art and craft and offer goods for sale from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, May 4, on the lawn of the Old State Capitol as part of the Governor’s Derby Celebration festivities.

Since 1936, there have been gatherings, both large and small, in the capital city to celebrate the Kentucky Derby. This year marks the sixth event hosted by Governor Steve Beshear and First Lady Jane Beshear. The events are free and open to the public.

“Kentucky’s high-quality handmade art and craft is an important part of our state’s heritage,” said Lori Meadows, arts council executive director. “It’s a natural fit that artists are an important part of a celebration showcasing all manner of great things about Kentucky on one of the most exciting days of the year in the Commonwealth.”

In addition to the exhibiting artists, activities included free concerts, children’s activities, and the annual Governor’s Derby Exhibit coordinated by the arts council.
