14th Annual Tybee Festival of the Arts
$4000 Prize money at 14th Annual Tybee Festival of the Arts Juried Show
As the heat of the summer eases out, Tybee Island turns focus on the Fall Festivals extending the tourist season, and offering great “what to do for the week end” options for visitors and locals alike.
Tybee Arts Association’s 14th Annual Tybee Festival of The Arts Juried Show will be held October 16th 10:00am-6:00pm and October 17th 10:00am-5:00pm, only one week after the Pirate Fest. We switch the ‘Pirate Talk’ into ‘Language of Art’ full of inspiration and appreciation for creativity.
The event is sponsored by The City of Tybee and Tybee Arts Association and will be held for the second time at the South beach parking lot under the large tent right by the Atlantic Ocean – “Rain or Shine”, Free and open to the public.
Tybee Island is home for many artists and galleries, and the Festival of the Arts is an ideal event for regional and local artists to show case their work, network with other artists and enjoy a beautiful week end in a magical setting on the Beach.
This year the Show will include about 40 artists from not only Georgia, but also Alabama, South Carolina, North Carolina, Florida and Tennessee. Wide variety of mediums will be presented; Jewelry, Oil, Oil and wax, Mixed Media, Photography, Glass, Pottery and ceramics, Water color, Copper art, Metal craft, Carbon steel, Clay sculpture, Wood and Beach artifacts and Aluminum wire to mention few. There will also be Tybee Arts Association Booth and all TAA members are welcome to participate.
As Art and Music go hand in hand, there will be live music throughout both days offered by some great performers. Randy Smith of Instant Karma Productions is responsible for the Entertainment Schedule below:
