Free to the public, the Atlanta Arts Festival is a professionally juried fine arts event featuring skilled artists from across the country who are carefully selected in mediums including jewelry, painting, photography, ceramics and sculpture, leather and metal, glassblowing and more. With a palette of artwork as diverse as the cultural city the festival calls home, Atlanta’s large art buying community will find unique pieces to add to their collection, shop for distinctive décor to complete any room in their home or office and discover one‐of‐a‐kind jewelry to accentuate their individual style. Price ranges vary, so every patron can expect to find something special that fits their taste and budget.
“Our goal with the Atlanta Arts Festival is not only to bring the best craftsmen from across the country but also in our own backyard. That includes notable chefs, bakers, mixologists as well as some of Atlanta’s favorite local musical talents,” said Festival Co-Founder Tracy Tepp. “It is a weekend filled with art, music, food, interactive classes, sponsor activations, our Lil’ Alley Artist, Creation Station, Canvas By U! and so much more. We hope everyone comes to Piedmont Park to enjoy this amazing weekend.”
