Presented by Glynn Visual Arts
Postell Park, Pier Village
Deadline: September 1
Booth Fee: $270
Glynn Visual Arts offers our fine arts event in a small town ocean-side setting under shady live oak trees. This will be the 48th show organized by our arts center. This show draws visitors from as far away as Atlanta to experience the beautiful outdoor setting in view of our historic lighthouse.
The jury brings in a well-balanced selection of about 70 art professionals representing 2D and 3D media. The festival's location, Postell Park, was redesigned a few years ago and laid out specifically for events like this. The unique one-square-block setting is located under a canopy of live oak trees, with the St. Simons Island Lighthouse and Atlantic Ocean only a few hundred yards away.
Background music, a children's hands-on art area and food vendors add to the ambiance, as do the Pier Village restaurants and shops, which are just down the block.
Marketing: Locally, banners, magazine calendars, newpaper coverage, radio coverage, social media. Surveys from previous festivals consistently praise our staff and volunteers for their hospitality.
What we heard: "It was a lovely show...one of the best I've attended." From an artist after the Spring show in the same park.
