Press release from Howard Alan Events:

Following a two-year hiatus, residents and visitors to scenic Asheville will once again see some of the finest locally made art alongside national artists’ works during the 2nd Annual Downtown Asheville Memorial Day Weekend Festival of the Arts. The free, outdoor event takes place in Pack Square Park from 10 am to 5 pm both Saturday, May 28 and Sunday, May 29.

One hundred regional, local and national artists are set to display their works in a prestigious show encompassing fine jewelry, exquisite works of art and hand-crafted apparel and decor.

Whether your passions run to sparkling jewels and one-of-a-kind paintings, exquisitely crafted glasswork or an art deco sculpture, you are sure to find it during the free, two-day event.

Presented by Howard Alan Events (HAE), producer of the nation’s finest juried art shows, the Downtown Asheville Festival of the Arts represents original, handcrafted artwork selected by an independent panel of expert judges from hundreds of applicants. HAE’s careful vetting process also ensures a wide array of mediums and price ranges will be offered during the festival.

“We are so grateful to once more return to the beautiful Asheville area with the artists,” says HAE president, Howard Alan. “It is a thrill to again join the vibrant, Asheville art scene during the event. The arts are celebrated every day in Asheville, and it is an honor to be amongst it all.”
