Artist's Square : Who We Are

Artist's Square is an open-air studio for artists living and working in Savannah. Artists have the opportunity to paint, draw, sketch, or perform in the open squares found throughout the city. They are then allowed to sell their original pieces of work to people walking about. If successful, we hope to make Artist's Square an artist in residency program. Artists from all over can come and live in Savannah for an allotted amount of time, contributing their knowledge and talents to the city, its people, and the cultural community.

Artist's Square : 15th Annual Telfair Art Fair!


Artists invited to Paint Outside in Telfair Square in conjunction with the 2009 Telfair Art Fair.

(SAVANNAH, GA) This year, the Telfair Art Fair marks fifteen years of art promotion throughout the city of Savannah.

Local artists are invited to share in the celebration of the Art Fair’s fifteenth anniversary. Bring your canvases, easels, pencils, and paints. Create original pieces, along with other artists.

The Telfair Art Fair is Saturday, November 14th, 2009 from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. and Sunday, November 15th, 2009 at 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. Outdoor artists are invited to paint during these hours.

Outdoor painting got popular during the impressionist movement, which included the work of Monet, Renoir, and Cezanne. At the time, outdoor painters defined innovation. Each artist captures a “fleeting moment” as they work, never really grasping the exact replica of what they are observing.
Outdoor painting in Paris is one of the top tourist attractions in their city.

Artist's Square at Telfair Square in Savannah, Georgia will officially kick off the first day of spring 2010, where artists will be invited to paint original art 7 days a week, as a way to show case Savannah's talent and beauty.
