Artists converge downtown Wedowee June 9th

For five years the East Alabama Art Society has
hosted Art on the Median in Downtown Wedowee.

Art lovers will be in for a treat June 9 when the East Alabama Arts Society hosts its fifth annual Art on the Median in downtown Wedowee.

The festivities will begin at 10 a.m. Saturday.

“We are hoping to have a wide variety of mediums,” Sylvia Grant, Art Show chairperson, said. “The show this year will feature fine art, folk art and fun art!”

Several mediums of art will be displayed including oils, acrylics, watercolors, photography, pottery and possibly stone work.

The event will be in the median on U.S. Highway 431 in Downtown Wedowee.

“We feel like the art show is a good opportunity to show local talent and gives the visitors to our town a chance to see what all we have to offer.”

Wedowee police officers will be on hand to help direct traffic as well as direct visitors to available parking.

The shops in the downtown area will also be open for the day and the owners encourage the visitors to take a peek in their doors as well.

There will be no admission charged for the event but most of the artwork will be available for sale.

“There will be some artists who will choose just to display their work,” Grant said. “But there will be numerous artists selling their work.”

The one day art show continues to grow every year and this year will be no exception.
