The Swift Creek Arts and Crafts Gallery is located in the "doll house"
across from the Court House at 25 North Washington Street in downtown
Campton, KY. The Gallery offers a venue for local and regional artists
to show, demonstrate, and sell their work. The Gallery is open on
Thursday evenings from 6:30 to 9:00 throughout the summer coinciding
with "Music in the Park." It is also open during "Christmas on
Swift Creek," the Swift Silvermine Festival, and by appointment. The Gallery is
closed during the winter.
The Swift Creek Gallery has over twenty-five artists and crafters
displaying and selling their work. Since the gallery charges the artist
a very small commission (10 - 15%) prices to the public are dramatically
reduced compared to other stores.
Periodically, we offer our "Hands-On Appalachia" events at the Gallery.
Activities include classes in traditional Appalachian dulcimer, basket
making, soap making, candle making, and other mountain crafts.
Regional artists and crafters interested in selling their work at the
Swift Creek Gallery can contact Janine Musser at (606) 725-4860 or by
Artist membership fees are $15 per year. We add a very modest 15%
commission to your asking price for items under $100. For items over
$100, we add a 10% commission. As you know, most places double your
asking price. The reason we can do this is because the owners of the
building, Reva Terrill and Carol Jean Jett, are not charging rent. Thank
you, Reva and Carol Jean.
