Jekyll Island Art Festival - Jekyll Island, Coastal Georgia Beaches

Jekyll Island Art Festival - Jekyll Island, Coastal Georgia Beaches

The smell of oil paints and potter’s dust is in the air and Jekyll Island’s Historic District is abuzz with creative energies. The annual Jekyll Island Arts Association’s Arts Festival is coming to the island the weekend of March 11th -13th from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on the grounds of Goodyear Cottage. This free annual event is a three-day extravaganza highlighting the works of many of the association’s 432 members coming from all over North America. It is also a shopping Mecca for all art lovers. Approximately thirty-five years ago, the annual Arts Festival took flight as a way for the Jekyll Island Arts Association’s members to submit their art for judging and present an exhibit to the public. This festival has evolved into an unequaled event consisting of a committee of 35 people, nearly one hundred volunteers and attracting over 3,000 visitors yearly. With so many high-caliber artists participating, the Arts Festival promises to be competitive and feature an exhibit of the highest quality.
