The Gertrude Herbert Institute of Art (GHIA) in Augusta, Georgia, is pleased to present its annual Spring Artists’ Market and Festival, March 10–17, 2017 at historic Ware’s Folly, located at 506 Telfair Street in downtown Augusta.

Now in its eleventh year, the Spring Artists’ Market and Festival will return offering a free weekend for art lovers and art makers of all ages and interests! An exhibition and sale of works by area artists will kick off with an opening reception on Friday, March 10 from 6:00–8:00 p.m. The reception will honor the 2017 exhibiting artists, and guests will receive a 10% discount on all purchases made that evening. Works in the Artists’ Market exhibition will remain on view and available for purchase until the following Friday, March 17.

Approximately thirty emerging and established Augusta-area artists will display and sell their work in the Main Gallery of the Institute. Works represented will include sculpture, photography, ceramics, paintings, drawings, and prints, with options to suit all tastes and budgets. A returning component of this year’s Market is the Artists’ Boutique, a gallery section featuring smaller works attractively priced at $100 or less—the perfect place to find an artful and affordable treasure. *For exhibiting artists...the deadline has been extended to Monday, February 29th. Paperwork can be found at the bottom of page.

On Saturday, March 11, 2017, a family-friendly free Festival will be held, offering fun for children and parents alike. From face painting and hands-on art activities for children to artist demonstrations and gallery browsing for grown-ups, a variety of fun and educational activities will be offered for every member of the family. The Festival will be held at the Institute’s headquarters from 11:00 a.m.–2:00 p.m.
