Art in the Square recently made the top 10 list of best Fine Arts Festivals in the Country according to Art Fair SourceBook. The publication listed Art in the Square as the number 8 fine arts festival across the U.S. Art Fair SourceBook is a veteran publication of the art world that serves as a guide to the best juried art and craft fairs from cost to coast. The guide publishes to art lovers and buyers, exhibiting artist and art show organizers.
“To be named by the Sourcebook in the top 10 of art festivals in the nation is such an honor. The Sourcebook is known as the go to publication by artists for information on art festivals. They utilize this information in choosing which shows to apply to,” said Robin Snyder, professional artist/original chair of Art in the Square. “To be ranked in the top 10 is a tribute to the members of Southlake Women’s Club on keeping the focus of the event on improving the quality of art and artists each year. While the event has grown to include a little something for everyone, the focus has remained on bringing quality artists and art patrons together. To be listed number 8 in the nation shows we have been very successful at doing just that.”
Art in the Square is a free fine arts festival with over 140 renowned artists with activities for the whole family. Proceeds from the event provide funding for deserving Northeast Tarrant County charities that serve women, children and families.
