COMING APRIL 11, 12 & 13 2015

 AVA is now planning for the 2015 Festival!

The 15th Annual 4 Bridges Arts Festival™ will be at the First Tennessee Pavilion located in the Southside District of downtown Chattanooga on April 11 & 12, 2015 with a preview party on April 10.  Exhibit booths at the 4 Bridges Arts Festival™ are awarded on the basis of a jury selection. The selection jury consists of artists and art professionals who excel in their respective fields. Exhibitors will be chosen based on overall artistic excellence (skill, creativity, aesthetic sensibility). There are no mandated quotas for any particular category. For detailed guidelines and access to the online application for artists, please visit the Call For Artists webpage.
