Greenway Art Festival Returns to Old Fort Park on Saturday, Sept. 17

Dozens of talented local artists will once again display and sell their creative work along the Murfreesboro Greenway trail on Saturday, Sept. 17, from 10 a.m.–4 p.m.

Old Fort Park, 916 Golf Lane, Murfreesboro, will host the 14th Annual Greenway Art Festival; over 70 artists are registered for the 2016 festival.

“Last year was another record attendance for our growing Greenway Art Festival featuring talented local artists,” said Melinda Tate, Greenway Program Coordinator. “This year, we expect the quality and quantity of art to be even better.”

Patrons can browse through booths of original artwork and crafts produced by some of the finest artists in Middle Tennessee.

Among the many participating artists is Murfreesboro artist Dawna Kinne Magliacano, a mixed media artist, illustrator and art instructor working in a number of mediums out of her Murfreesboro studio.

Magliacano’s work is featured on this year’s Greenway Art Festival poster, and her work has also been published in Incite 3: The Art of Storytelling and Incite 4: Relax Renew Restore, books which are a compilation of the best mixed media from around the world. Magliacano is currently illustrating a children’s book along with other illustration projects.

All Greenway Art Festival artwork is original and created by the artists; no mass-produced, commercially manufactured work or work manufactured from kits or molds will be displayed.
