             The Kentucky Art and Craft Foundation is proud to present the 7th annual exhibition Holidazzle in the Shands Gallery. Each year, the Kentucky Art and Craft Gallery produces Holidazzle, an exhibition created specially to coincide with the holiday season, and this year’s show is sure to be a crowd-pleaser!  “This year we intend to present an eclectic mix of contemporary craft from across the United States,” says curator Mary Ellen Furlong.  “We are inviting some of the finest artisans from across the country to participate alongside our own Kentucky craftspeople.  We are choosing artists who work in a variety of media ranging from pottery to jewelry to fiber to glass and more; the common theme is that each creates knockout works of art.  Our goal is to create an exhibition that showcases fine craft in a setting conducive to collecting and gift buying.”  

Holidazzle also will feature sterling and gold jewelry by Peggy Cochran (Portland, Oregon), whimsical metal handbags by Natalie McCluggage (Louisville, Kentucky), and gorgeous jackets and scarves by Sandra Clark (Barrington, Illinois).  Unique lamps by Lewis and Clark (Columbia, South Carolina) also will be available, as well as decorative fiber pieces by M.J. Kinman (Louisville, Kentucky) and Penny Sisto (Floyds Knobs, Indiana).   Ceramic artists include Carol Green (Elburn, Illinois), Dana Major (Afton, Virginia), Becky Lloyd (Princeton, Minnesota), David Stuart (North August, South Carolina), Dan Selter (Lexington, Kentucky), and Libby Ware (Daytona Beach, Florida). 

“This exhibition provides a great way to support talented artists and the arts community as a whole, all while finding that perfect holiday gift,” says Executive Director Mary Miller.

Holidazzle will be on view from November 7 to December 28, 2002 in the Shands Gallery at the Kentucky Art and Craft Gallery at 609 W. Main St.  The opening reception will take place on Wednesday, November 6, 2002 from 5:00-7:30 p.m. Admission is free.  For more information about the exhibition, contact the Kentucky Art and Craft Foundation at (502) 589-0102.
