Art, music, food and fun return to Southlake Town Square for the 19th annual Art in the Square, Friday, April 27 through Sunday, April 29.
Art in the Square will showcase the artwork of over 160 internationally renowned artists, local emerging artists and aspiring high school artists. Hosted by the Southlake Women’s Club, the community fundraiser will benefit women, children and families in Northeast Tarrant County. The family-friendly event will offer free admission as well as free parking in Town Square’s parking lots and garages.
Ranked 8th in the nation’s top 10 art festivals of 2018 by the renowned Art Fair SourceBook, Art in the Square has evolved into one of the most popular art festivals in the country. With hundreds of art pieces on display and for purchase, the event celebrates all artists, from recognized professionals to up-and-comers. Even area high school students will participate in a juried Youth Art in the Square, and the winner will have his or her artwork displayed in the rotunda of the State Capitol for one week.
In addition to offering the best in visual arts, Art in the Square will also feature a continuous lineup of musicians and performing artists on two stages throughout the weekend.
