Kentuck is a non-profit organization dedicated to perpetuating the arts, engaging the community and empowering the artist.

At the Kentuck Art Center in historic downtown Northport, Alabama, we offer exhibitions, classes, and shopping year-round. Our galleries, working artists' studios, and shop are nestled around the Courtyard of Wonders, which features shady retreats and fantastical sculptures--including Rusty the Pointer and the Fire Ant.

We open two new exhibitions each month showcasing the work of contemporary and craft artists. Sometimes traditional, sometimes visionary, always authentic, Kentuck brings art to the community and builds community with art.


Donations to Kentuck support our mission of perpetuating the arts, engaging the community, and empowering the artist. By giving to Kentuck, you help celebrate and preserve visionary art and the traditional skills of fine craft. Donations in any amount are welcome and appreciated.

We are a design and fabrication shop that encourages play in museums, organizations and brands so they may spread the roots of their mission. Play is a powerful tool because it tests assumptions, makes connections and establishes a positive emotional memory to concepts. Incorporating play (interactives) in your project can actually boost diversity, loyalty and engagement which will ultimately strengthen your mission.
