The 20th Annual Telfair Art Fair, held in the heart of historic downtown Savannah, Nov 15th – 16th, 2014, is not your average art fair, attracting thousands and showcasing high-end art.
The Telfair Art Fair is a popular, open-air art event that attracts the art-loving public to downtown Savannah each year – whether they are serious collectors and art-fans or just curious locals and out-of-town visitors looking for a fun event to pass some time.
Telfair Art Fair 2014 will, as always, include all kinds of art: paintings, metal, stone, clay, and found-object sculpture, drawings and pastels, printmaking, glass, textiles and fiber, ceramics/pottery, photography, furniture, jewelry, mixed media, and even digital media. A little bit (a lot?) of everything, in other words – from representational to abstract, the outlandish to the down-to-earth.
The annual Telfair Art Fair’s blind jury selects the 80 or so artists that will show from a sea of annual submissions. These artists will display their work for sale at the event and be eligible to win one of the nine prizes to be awarded: The Carolyn Luck McElveen Gold Award is a $5,000 cash prize, the Silver Award is $2,500, and the Bronze is $1,000. All three also earn guaranteed entry into next year’s Telfair Art Fair. The remaining prizes are the $1,000 Lowcountry Award, given to a regional artist, and five $500 Honorable Mention Awards.
While Telfair Art Fair 2014 doesn’t officially open until Saturday the 15th, there is an exclusive, preview party on Friday the 14th known as the Arty Party. If you can make it, don’t miss it! This popular, opening event gives artists and 600 lucky, Arty Party guests a jump-start on the weekend with a chance to view and buy art as they enjoy the evening’s music, food, and drink. Different levels of Arty Party tickets are available online but tend to sell-out fast, so act now if you hope to attend: Arty Party Tickets.
