Posted: Updated:

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Works from 27 Kentucky artists are being included in the 2014 Governor's Derby Exhibit in Frankfort.

The exhibit is coordinated by the Kentucky Arts Council and is part of the annual Governor's Derby Celebration.

The exhibit opens Monday in the Capitol Rotunda and runs through May 5. The building is open 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. EDT weekdays and will be open on May 3, Derby Day, for visitors to see the work.

Arts Council Executive Director Lori Meadows says the event gives many artists in Kentucky an introduction to working with the council. Any Kentucky visual artist 18 or older is eligible to submit work for consideration in the exhibit.
