We’re lucky enough to live in a state steeped in tradition, where high-quality art and craftsmanship is right at our fingertips. The holidays are the perfect time to commemorate those traditions and incorporate them into our celebrations. Throughout the month of December, we, at the Kentucky Arts Council, have been compiling lists of gifts, décor and events to help everyone create and continue traditions centered around artisans throughout the state to help you do just that.
On our website are many gift giving guides that include categories such as the gift of performance, holiday décor, and local music (just to name a few). You can check out the entire list on the Give a Gift Kentucky website.
On our social media pages you’ll find suggestions hand-picked by the arts council staff, which includes some of our favorite pieces by Kentucky artisans. Everything from paintings and jewelry to books and music are included.
Below is a slideshow with each piece, including the staff member who chose it:
We encourage you to share gifts you gave or received this season by posting them on our social media pages and using hashtag #giveagiftky.
If you still weren’t able to find the perfect gift for the hard-to-buy-for person in your family, check our directories page.
