During the month of December, The Kentucky Museum of Art and Craft in Louisville, KY will be featuring the Teddy Bears and whimsical animals of artists, Gordon and Judy Geagley, owners of Judy Geagley by Hand LLC. The Geagley’s are Kentucky Crafted ® participants, a state recognition, which designates them as one of Kentucky’s premier craft businesses. The couple living in the Appalachia region of Kentucky, in Lewis County, have been designing Teddy Bears, soft animals, baby quilts among other handmade products from recycled materials for over 30 years. The Geagley’s are firm believers in recycling and keeping things from the landfills. A large selection of their work is now featured for sale at the museum.
The Kentucky Museum of Art and Craft, formally The Art and Craft Foundation, is a non-profit organization founded in 1981 by Phyllis George, then first lady of Kentucky and former Miss America. The museum is located in Louisville, Kentucky’s “Museum Row,” in the West Main District of downtown. It was started as a “Dream” preserving Kentucky’s heritage in its Art and Craft: through the museum, to support Kentucky’s rich art and craft resources and to educate and promote the fine craftsmanship in the arts and crafts.
The museum is supported in part by the Fund for the Arts and the Kentucky Arts Council, a state agency of the Commerce Cabinet.
Visit and support the Artists through the Retail Gallery Shop at The Kentucky Museum Art and Craft.
