On Sept. 22 and 23, approximately 100 painters, photographers, sculptors, metalworkers, glass artists, jewelers and other artisans will display their wares at the Buckhead Fine Arts Festival at Buckhead Village. Festivalgoers can observe artist demonstrations, shop for new pieces for their collections, enjoy live acoustic music and sample eats from gourmet food trucks. “Buckhead is a neighborhood rich in history and culture, which makes it a logical location for our festival,” says Randall Fox, founder of the Atlanta Foundation for Public Spaces, the event’s presenter. “We look forward to bringing in an array of artists of all mediums. The Buckhead Fine Arts Festival will appeal to a diverse mix of people looking to enjoy music, great food and the arts, all framed within this beautiful community.” The free festival is held rain or shine, and pets are invited.
