Juried Artist Market

Each year AthFest accepts approximately 50-60 artists from Georgia​ and all over the Southeast to participate in its juried Artist Market. The Artist Market always has a great lineup of talented artist showing and selling their work including local favorites and several new artists.

The variety and quality of work in the Artist Market is outstanding, and it encompasses many types of media, including jewelry, woodworking, furniture, photography, drawing, painting, fabric, culture, clothing, glass, and ceramics.

A local panel judges all of the AthFest Artist Market booths and AthFest proudly awards $1,250 in prizes to the selected artists.

Beginning in 2016, AthFest is proud to introduce the student-artist booths. AthFest will have approximately 3 – 5 booths where high school and college students can showcase and sell their work. Being a nonprofit dedicated to music and arts education, we are thrilled to add this new area to the AthFest Artist Market.
