The Owensboro Convention Center is bringing a NEW arts and crafts expo to Owensboro, Friday, November 7th – Sunday, November 9th. Kraftucky Arts & Crafts Expo is a creation of Global Spectrum, the management company of the Owensboro Convention Center. This event will feature many local and regional artisans and crafters, offering over 100 booths for the public’s viewing and shopping pleasure.
“We are excited to produce and offer this event to the community,” said Doris Sparks, Global Spectrum’s Event Manager at the Owensboro Convention Center. “Our community is full of artisans, crafters and people who really appreciate this type of event.” This will also be the perfect opportunity to do some early Christmas shopping, Sparks said.
The event will also feature special guest speakers, including Dan Neil Barnes and Thomas Porter. Barnes is a Henderson, KY native and his stunning hanging piece, Cascade, is displayed in the convention center lobby. He has worked with stained glass for many years. Porter has created unique pottery pieces for many years as well, and studied pottery at Brescia University in Owensboro, KY. He specializes in creating Raku pottery.
Owensboro has a long history of producing quality craft shows. The 2014 Kraftucky Arts & Crafts Expo will continue this tradition of quality and will be the premier consumer craft show of the season. Kraftucky will serve as a central location for arts and crafts enthusiasts from the region to collaborate and purchase the newest products.
