About the Fine Arts and Crafts Market:
A favorite part of the Arts in the Heart of Augusta Festival with attendees, the Fine Arts and Fine Crafts Market is very popular with regional artisans, too! Ranked in the Sunshine Artist’s Top 200 Festivals list for five years in a row, the Festival also won a Silver Kaleidoscope for BEST FESTIVAL from SFEA. In 2017, 88,000 people attended and enjoyed the juried Fine Arts and Fine Crafts Market.
Over the years, we have worked to curate a fabulous selection of artwork at many price points. We seek to provide original, interesting, beautiful, and well-made pieces for everyone, from the serious art collector to the young person with an allowance to spend.
