Kentucky Museum Of Art & Craft

The Kentucky Museum of Art and Craft was founded in 1981 by Phyllis George Brown, then First Lady of Kentucky and former Miss America. It was established to promote the rich art and craft heritage of Kentucky through three main areas of programming: exhibition, education, and support of artists through a retail Gallery Shop.
The organization has seen artists progress from novices to masters and Main Street transform from an almost a deserted noncommercial street to the thriving business and cultural district it is today.

Artists Represented

Bonnie Blincoe's turn at creating handmade glass beads began in 1994 after studying under Kate Fowle in Washington, D.C. and later under Donovan Boutz. She has been a member of the International Society of Glass Beadmakers since 1994 and learns more techniques at each of the Society's yearly conferences held across the nation. In 1999 she attended a week long advanced class under Sage and Tom Holland in Arkansas, as a result of an Early Times art scholarship she won. The glass rods Blincoe uses are imported from Czechoslovakia, Italy, Germany, and Japan.
