It will run until Jan. 8, 2024.  

“Nature & People” will also include artists’ work from China, Italy, New Zealand, and other countries. The broad theme of the exhibit includes topics that reflect the following categories:  

  • Nature & Society  
  • Nature & Environmental Protection  
  • People & Animals  
  • Nature & Technology  

“’Nature & People’ is a great opportunity for the public, local community, and schools to see different views on the theme of nature and people from various cultures and perspectives,” said Tammy Stone, administrative coordinator for the Kentucky Folk Art Center.  

The KFAC operates from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday. Admission is free and open to the public.  

Located in the historic Union Grocery near the campus of Morehead State University, the KFAC offers much more than a typical museum experience. It houses a permanent collection of nearly 1,400 pieces of self-taught art. Dozens of works from the collection are displayed on a rotating basis in the center’s first-floor gallery. The center presents several new changing exhibits each year in the second-floor gallery, featuring folk art, fine art, textiles, photography, and historical content. KFAC also boasts one of the best gift shops in the region, offering original folk art, crafts, jewelry, books, toys, housewares, and much more.
