SPOTSYLVANIA, Va. —July 17, 2018 — Spotsylvania is teaming up with JART, Inc., for the first annual

SPOTSY ARTS FESTIVAL on Saturday, August 11 from 10 AM to 6 PM and Sunday, August 12 from 11 AM to 5 PM. The grounds of the Historic Spotsylvania Courthouse (9101 Courthouse Road, Spotsylvania) will be transformed into a massive indoor/outdoor art gallery for artist and artisans from all around the United States. This juried festival will feature original creations from pottery to paintings; jewelry to photography; woodworking to sculpture and much more by highly successful and skilled artists as well as the works of new and emerging local artists and artisans.

The Courthouse lawn is the perfect venue for an art festival as it is shaded by large shade trees adding an element of elegance as well as producing gentle breezes to cool the August days. There is ample paved parking adjacent to the lawn which means you will have only a short walk to and from your car or ride the trolley shuttle from Spotsylvania Middle School or the Judicial Center Parking area.

Register at the Hospitality Tent to win one of two $100 Festival Dollars Gift Cards. The drawing will be held at 1 PM and you must be present to win. Use your dollars for purchases from any of the artisans

FREE ADMISSION AND PARKING. Bring the entire family and enjoy everything from glassworks, to metalworks, sculptures to paintings, jewelry and much, much more.

JART, Inc., is a non-profit organization which operates as a non-profit corporation which enables it to support artists and art groups. JART’s charter states it will return profits to the community where they were earned for art and art related activities. Spotsylvania County School’s Arts programs will be benefiting from their donation. JART is able to help you plan your next art-related activity or benefit.
