The Governor’s office and the Kentucky Arts Council have put out a call for Kentucky artists to submit works for the annual Derby exhibit in the Capitol Rotunda.
The theme for this year’s exhibit, April 25 to May 16, is “Kentucky landscapes.” All Kentucky artists are eligible. The works must be two dimensional, completed within the past four years and not exceed 36 inches in width or 25 pounds. Artists selected are responsible for transporting their work to the Kentucky Arts Council offices in Frankfort and they have the choice as to whether they want to offer works for sale. There is no commission taken on sales.
The application deadline is March 29. Click here for the digital application form. Artists accepted into the show will be notified April 5.
