A beloved annual event, Telfair Art Fair brings exciting, new, and beautiful art to Telfair Square. You’ll see fine art of all types on display and for sale from more than 80 talented artists.
Painting, sculpture, photography, furniture, glass, digital media, textiles, mixed media, and more will be represented. A juried show, finalists are chosen from the hundreds of applications that are submitted.
The open-air event is more than just an exhibition of great art. Telfair Art Fair also entertains with live music from great local and regional acts. Vendors of various products and family crafts will also be on hand, further helping to make the event one of the better places to get some early holiday gift shopping done.
The fair is free, open to the public, and regularly attracts thousands of attendees.
For those hoping to get in a sneak-peek of the weekend’s festivities, there is the Telfair Arty Party on Friday, November 11th, 7pm to 9pm. The Arty Party is a popular preview bash that kicks off the art fair each year. Music, food, drinks, and an opportunity to view and purchase art before the fair opens makes the Arty Party a must-do for many. It’s also an opportunity to meet and chat with the artists, themselves!
Tickets for the Arty Party can be purchased online. Get yours before they all sell out!
Telfair Museum opened to the public in the 1880s, making it the oldest public art museum in the Southeast. What began in a family mansion has grown to a permanent collection of approximately 4,000 works of art housed in three historic buildings: the Telfair Academy, the Owens-Thomas House, and the Jepson Center.
