FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky Tourism, Arts and Heritage Secretary Don Parkinson has named an executive director for the Kentucky Arts Council.

He is Chris Cathers, who has been a longtime staff member of the council. He has been interim executive director since September 2017.

Parkinson says Cathers will keep moving the council forward and continue what he has already built.

Cathers was previously the arts council's program branch manager, starting in 2007. His duties included production of the arts council's annual showcase of Kentucky art and artists, The Kentucky Crafted Market. This year's event will be held Friday through Sunday at the Kentucky Horse Park's Alltech Arena in Lexington.
