Arts on the River! is a cultural arts festival held each October in various locations near the Columbus
Riverwalk overlooking the Chattahoochee River. The festival evolved from the Columbus Artists’ Guild’s Fall Arts Festival, held for many years in various locations around town.
The art show is juried, in that representative work of all participating artists is reviewed to assure that the show remains fine arts only. Slides or photographs are required from first time exhibitors. The awards for the fine arts show have attracted the attention of artists throughout the southeast. A judge from outside the area is brought in to disperse the honors. Various media are encouraged and the show now accepts original computer art and fine art jewelry as well as the traditional forms of presentation. The result is a unique collection of paint media, photography, metal work, glass, hand thrown pottery, sculpture, and wood carving. Artists are encouraged to demonstrate their expertise during the show, and talk to interested persons, especially children.
