Glynn Art in the Park EXTRAvARTganza on St. Simons Island, GA offers a quality arts and crafts event in a small-town oceanside setting. The Glynn Art Association is the organizer for this 21st annual spring event. The island is one of four barrier islands known as the “Golden Isles” on the Georgia coast, midway between Savannah, GA, and Jacksonville, FL, including Sea Island, Little St. Simons Island, and Jekyll Island.
The festival occurs during the time of year when many visitors are in town to enjoy a spring break vacation, coming from throughout the state, as well as from around the country. The jury brings in a well-balanced selection of about 70 artists representing 2D and 3D media.
Postell Park, home to the festival across the street from Glynn Art Visual Center, was re-designed a few years ago and laid out specifically for events like this. The one square block setting is located under mighty live oak trees, with the Atlantic Ocean a few hundred yards away, creating a unique ambiance.
A Children’s Art table enables the creation of a take-home piece of art, suitable for all young ages. A few food vendors will be on site in addition to multiple restaurants in the nearby Pier Village, within a short walking distance. This years festival also coincides with the Georgia Coastal Artists’ spring show and sale, making for an even more exciting EXTRAvARTganza!
Advertising is done through local newspapers and tourism guides, billboards and signs throughout the community, posters in storefronts, Constant Contact emails, our website, and social media.
Surveys from previous festivals consistently praise our staff and volunteers for their hospitality.
One artist recently wrote: “The Art Association does everything right and I love this show.” A local residentwrote to us: “I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed the festival this past weekend. I went to the festival on Saturday 'just to look,' the art was very impressive and I ended up buying several things.“
