More than 150 award-winning artists who work in media from clay to wood, metal and mixed media to oils and watercolors – jewelry artists, painters, photographers, sculptors and more – will show off their works Nov. 13-15, 2009 at Downtown Disney during one of the Southeast’s most highly regarded juried art festivals, Festival of the Masters. This is the 34th year for the festival.
Besides the great art on sale, you’ll also see:
