There will be a big crew of current UA art students, alumni and friends under the swaying pines at the 51st Kentuck Festival of the Arts on October 15 and 16, 2022.
Current grad student Celeste Pfau (D-04), undergrad art major Abi Brewer (B-27), and the members of Crimson Clay student ceramics club (B-31) will all have booths. And, UA art alumni and friends, many of them veteran festival artists, will also be around the park: Kerry Kennedy of Firehorse Pottery (B-28, B-30), book artist Anna Embree (B-12), the Gordo artist group Crossroads Arts Alliance (B-16), Black Belt Treasures from Camden, Alabama (G-05), renowned folk artist Charlie Lucas (F-27), and the photography students of Booker T. Washington Magnet High School (C-21, C-23) in Montgomery, Alabama, will all have their talents and skills on display for the arts festival.
The nationally renowned festival, established in the 1970s by a group of Northport citizens including longtime Kentuck Art Center director Georgine Clarke, takes place in Kentuck Park, 3401 5th Street, Northport, Alabama. More information is available here.
