The 60th Annual Art on Main festival takes over downtown Hendersonville on Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 28-29, from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm each day. The festival will take place on Hendersonville’s historic Main Street, with the street closed to traffic.
One of the region’s most popular outdoor arts festivals, Art on Main features both fine art and fine craft artists from throughout North and South Carolina, many other states in the region, and beyond. More than 85 artists will participate in this juried and judged festival. Art on Main will also include artists who will demonstrate their creative processes in a wide variety of media.
Live art demonstrations are interspersed throughout the show for the public to see how different artists “go to work” in their media. Demonstrations can include blacksmithing, basket making, stone cutting lapidary, copper and brass art, wire wrapping, raku pottery firing, painting, weaving, fiber and a caricature artist! A changing and wide range of artists display their creative processes and techniques each year.
Art on Main is sponsored in part by the Hendersonville County Tourism Development Authority.
