Fortunate for us city-dwellers, as well as visitors from near and far, Atlanta is not at all shy on festivals. One of my favorites is coming up soon...the Atlanta Arts Festival!
Now then, you'll hear people say, "I might go, but they have the same stuff year after year." I charge that those who utter such nonsense could use a renewed sense of adventure.

True, there are some artists who a "regulars" at some of our festivals, and for some that's a good thing. Personally, I love it when Greg Stones attends any of our festivals. Greg is a watercolor artist with a unique sense of humor who visits us all the way from Rhode Island. I love his work that I've seen and am always excited to see his new work.
One of the most fun aspects of a festival is the people-watching. Atlanta always delivers when it comes to animated scenarios, a plethora of fashion expressions, and some pretty sweet 'eye candy' from time to time. And nothing beats the joviality that a festival brings...not to mention, they're a great excuse to get out of the house!
The Atlanta Arts Festival is usually the second weekend after Labor Day making this year's Saturday and Sunday, September 15-16. The artist line up looks rather impressive...and yes, Greg Stones will be there!
What is it about Greg you ask? He totally reminds me of Douglas Adams...an American version of course, but I see a remarkable parallel in their writing styles...and Greg paints too!
