Upcoming events in the Jackson area celebrate the arts

February 1, 2014 by  

There are a couple of events taking this place in March which will allow local artists to introduce themselves to the general public.

The first event taking place is the Jackson Art Association’s Spring Show. Members of the association will be showing their works and competing for several awards. Works will be on display at Jackson City Hall from March 5 to 31. The awards will be presented at a reception on March 9 between 2:00 and 4:00 PM. To learn more call 731-424-8577.

Later on in the month, the 6th annual Blooming Arts Festival is taking place in Linden. This event will feature over 100 artists and crafters who will be selling their works of art. It takes place in several venues in the downtown area, indoors and out. In addition to arts and crafts, there will be live performances, plenty of food for sale and children’s activities.

Both events give local artists a showcase to present themselves to the general public. Many will no doubt be able get future commissions out of it. To help keep their names in front of the public in the Jackson area, some of the artists may invest in postcard printing services. Postcards can then be handed out at booths or at an artist’s reception.

The Blooming Arts Festival is taking place from March 21 to 24. For more information call Hayley Byrd at 931-494-7844.
