Handmade ornament sought

The Appalachian Artisan Center in Hindman is seeking a handmade ornament for its 12th anniversary celebration to be held the first Friday in December. The ornament can be in any medium and the design must be an original production by the artist. Molds or branding may be designed, but the artist must be the one who completed the production. It must include the Appalachian Artisan Center name and date on it along with the center’s top business sponsors and the Kentucky Arts Council logo. One example is to use a ribbon with the information printed on it to actually hang the ornament. A prototype must be submitted by October 31.

Mail submissions to P.O. Box 833, Hindman, KY 41822 or deliver to the Artisan Center on 16 West Main Street between the hours of 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday.

The submission should consider the center’s mission to develop the economy of eastern Kentucky through arts, culture and heritage, cost under $3 per ornament including labor and be simple enough that to produce 300 to 400 by December 1.

For more information, call Thelma Hall at 606- 785-9855 or e-mail info@artisancenter.net.
