In celebration of the community project known as the Kingsport Carousel Project, the Office of Cultural Arts will present Kingsport’s new premier juried, high quality, fine arts and crafts show.
This juried show of approximately 20 quality exhibitors is open to all fine artists, artisans, craftspeople, photographers and printmakers.
The show will be juried by Kingsport Artisan Walt Turpening and will take place at the Kingsport Farmer’s Market.
All work must be original handmade works of fine craft/art. No commercial items for resale, kits, imported or consigned goods will be accepted.
Applications are available through the Office of Cultural Arts or online at www.Arts.KingsportTN.gov
The show will open with a gala event from 6 to 9 p.m., Friday March 22. This will be a fund-raiser for the Carousel Project. Carousel animals and paintings in progress will be prominently displayed.
The public will be encouraged to visit the show to see the progress of the Carousel Project and to interact with the carvers, painters and other volunteers as well as taking part in the Fine Craft Show.
The future site of the Kingsport Carousel will be in the vicinity of the Kingsport Farmer’s Market.
