Art Gallery Walk

The Art Gallery Walk lines both sides of Fayetteville Street with tents displaying original art created by local and nationally-known artists from across the country.   Stroll along the street; be inspired by the variety of paintings, jewelry, photography, sculptures, and mixed media art the Art Gallery Walk has to offer.  Meet the artists, learn about their techniques, and purchase an original creation to enjoy for years to come.

Our slide show features images of the artists and their work from the 2016 festival. 

Are you an artist or artisan interested in displaying and selling your work?  We seek high-quality work in the following categories:  basketry, bookmaking, digital art, doll making, fiber, folk art, hand crafted jewelry, leather, mixed media, metalwork, painting, photography, quilting, sculpture, and works on paper.
