For emerging artists and art enthusiasts alike, the Art-A-Fair showcases a taste of a different kind of media.
This year, the Art-A-Fair has a daily interactive game for visitors. Spectators can look for "Arty," a commemorative "46 emblem" hidden daily in plain sight. Those who find him win a prize.
Compared to the Sawdust Art Festival and Festival of Arts, the Art-A-Fair is more intimate with a smaller number of artists who are juried into the show.
While traditional art is present at the Art-A-Fair, the festival also hosts modern designs. Jon Parks' exhibit features abstract and colorful furniture, which look like something from a Tim Burton film. The pieces, including a multi-colored and abstract dresser, are unique.
"The different colors and combinations are what drives me," said Parks, an Art-A-Fair first-timer, in a phone interview. "If you're not unique or different, you just blend in with everything else. I want to be different from anything else."
