more than 200 talented artists in 12 different mediums. The 2015 Festival was enjoyed by art lovers, families, friends, and foodies alike. Attendees experienced beautiful weather, hands-on art activities, live music and savory bites while
perusing incredible artwork from across the country. While the Festival founders pride themselves on offering a variety of activities and beautiful art for every interest, they also take time to highlight the true stars of the show, the artists.
Each year, several artists are recognized for their artistry and craft with one artist from each of the 12 categories of art
awarded “Best of” in their respective craft. The winners are chosen by a panel of highly-esteemed judges, the same
artists and educators who chose the participating artists. The 9th Annual Atlanta Arts Festival is proud to announce this year’s winners:
