Jacksonville Fine Arts Festival

I spent the afternoon today in The Art Center booth at the Jacksonville Fine Arts Festival. I was really impressed with the show. There were a lot of artist booths ranging from paintings and photographs, to sculpture and glass, to more eclectic things like musical instruments including drums and didgeridoos.

The venue was also great. Boone Park is a beautiful place to host an art festival. All the artist booths are distributed between the trees with pathways taking you around the whole venue. The quality of the artists was a step above many of the shows I’ve attended.

Lots of people were there this afternoon. The weather was beautiful for the show, although it was quite hot. There were also a lot of kids, which was great for us since we were promoting the Wishes and Dreams Show for young artists (ages 4-17) that is being sponsored by The Arts Center. It was great to see how many kids were excited about having a chance to participate in an art show for young artists.
