We've just sent invitations to over 60 artists from Alabama, Mississippi, Georgia, Florida, North Carolina and Illinois to join us for Arts Fest! This year promises to be the most varied and regionally-diverse show to date.
We plan to highlight an "Artist of the Day" each day between now and April 21 on our Arts Fest Facebook page, so you can see the caliber of our show. Like our page now! www.facebook.com/montevalloartsfest
