ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
August 16-17, 2014
The 2014 Piedmont Park Summer Arts & Crafts Festival is a 2-day outdoor event with an emphasis on the visual arts and family fun presented by the Atlanta Foundation for Public Spaces, for people of all ages, races, customs and interests. The midtown community of Piedmont Park is considered to be home to one of the largest and most enthusiastic art buying communities in metro Atlanta. The Piedmont Park Summer Arts and craft festival is “bringing back” the tradition for local artists in Atlanta’s arts community.
Located in one of the most respected public parks in the City of Atlanta, we set out with these goals in mind: 1) Give back to the community through art; 2) Bring the tradition of the Piedmont Park Arts festival to the midtown community; 3) Create a festival for Artists by Artists, encouraging the artist have a voice in the creation and operations of the festival; 4) Create a show unlike any other in the City of Atlanta, bringing together outstanding artists from all over the country plus many from right here in Georgia.
This Festival will feature up to 250 painters, photographers, sculptors, leather and metalwork, glass blowers, jewelers and Crafters! The Festival will also offer artist demonstrations, live acoustic music, a children’s play area plus festival foods and beverages with healthy alternatives. Plus, we anticipate several “surprises” to delight visitors during the Festival.
The 2014 Piedmont Park Summer Arts Festival is organized by the Atlanta Foundation for Public Spaces, LLC, who also sponsor the fall fine arts Chastain Park Arts Festival and the Buckhead Spring Arts and Crafts Festival, along with a board of experts in various artistic disciplines. The festival will uphold the highest standards supporting the arts, and offer participating artists the environment to nurture appreciation for their skills.
This event will benefit a local charity or scholarship which supports the arts to be selected by the jury. With the help of our contributors and sponsors, the Piedmont Park Summer Arts & Crafts Festival will become a successful annual...
Fine art shows that are lucrative
I am looking for fine art shows across the country that are good shows.
I am also looking for boutiques that I can contact regarding wholesale orders. If you can suggest some boutiques in your area, I would appreciate it.

Philly new media artists
I'm looking for young artists (under 30) to feature in a presentation for the National Conference of Artists (this year in conjunction with the National Black Arts Festival in Atlanta) on âemerging artistsâ in the Philadelphia area. I am presenting artists who are African-American or of African descent.
Iâd love to show some new media work, like an interactive video art installation or a really great screen based work, but it's near impossible to find black artists working in this medium. Are there no black new media artists in philly? or are they all hiding behind t
