A mosaic by local artist Mary Hull sits by the Quinlan Visual Arts Center booth during last year’s Art in the Square in downtown Gainesville. The 11th annual Art in the Square will be next weekend in downtown Gainesville.,
Almost 65 artists will adorn Gainesville’s historic downtown square with pottery and paintings while dancers and musicians will entertain visitors to the 11th annual Art in the Square. Artists from all across the Southeast are set to participate in the Sept. 20-21 festival, which will feature food venders, face painting, a drumming and dance ceremony and a kids’ art zone. “Probably half the folks you will see coming in this year are new, and we’ve got some old stuff going on as well,” said Fox Gradin, who is serving as the festival’s executive director for the first time this year.
