Spotlight on Art: 2014 Artists Market


My favorite Atlanta art event is going on this week (February 3-8)!  The 'Spotlight on Art' Artists Market is my ideal kind of place- thousands of paintings and works from hundreds of artists, all under one roof, in a very relaxed atmosphere. Virtually every genre is represented - contemporary art, pop art, impressionism, realism, sculpture, folk art, whimsical art, children's art. This year, over 350 artists are participating; there are many established gallery quality artists, as well as up and coming emerging artists. Plus, there is a wonderful jewelry area featuring unique pieces from some of the most talented jewelry designers in the Southeast.

Here is some information, followed by a sneak preview of the market (I was able to take pictures as they were setting up before the market).  Check out my pictures on instagram (http://instagram.com/ttiblog) for daily updates on my favorite items - new art is put out every day! Also, a few of my favorite items from the market are highlighted in this post.

This is just a small peek at the amazing selection of items available at the 2014 Trinity Artists Market, and believe it or not there are hundreds of paintings and works of art in the back room that will come out as paintings on the wall sell. Every day is new and different at the Artists Market, so I visit just about every day!  The Artists Market has a casual, friendly, and welcoming environment, and is very low pressure; it truly is the most inspirational place in Atlanta this week.  

If you live within driving distance of Atlanta, I highly recommend a visit.  If you are in town for Scott Antique Markets this coming weekend, it's easy to add a stop at the Artists Market to your itinerary.
