We are a spirited group of artisans who love what we do!
From traditional to contemporary, our works echo the diversity of our Kentucky landscape.
As artisans, we found that we are stronger together than we are apart!
We invite you to find out who we are, who our members are, what is going on with us, and ask why we have a turtle on this page!

Sheltowee Artisans was formed in 1994 to build a friendly arts community and to encourage superior craftsmanship, consistent quality, and professional presentation of work. Based in the Carnegie Community Arts Center in Somerset, it is making a difference in the arts of Southern and Eastern Kentucky.
The Carnegie Community Arts Center has supported multiple arts groups and individual artists since 2008. A great community and governmental effort went into its planning, renovation and opening. The upper level houses a frame shop and a photography studio. The main level houses the Federal Room, a commercial kitchen, and the Sheltowee Art Shop. The lower level houses 5 individual artist studios, the Bistro, and the Yellow Umbrella. It occupies the former Pulaski County Library that was housed in the old Post Office building and is located at 107 North Main Street, Somerset, KY 42501.
