The 2014 Artists
The 4 Bridges Arts Festival™ has gained a reputation in the Southeast for consistently presenting top-quality, original artwork created by contemporary artists from across the country. Not only does the event attract the finest artists, but 4 Bridges is a magnet for art patrons of all kinds. The weekend provides a wonderful buying opportunity for everyone from the novice buyer looking to make the first purchase for his or her collection to the experienced collector or gallery owner.
Each year, regional and national artists vie for one of the coveted booth spaces to showcase and sell their art by submitting a portfolio of work to a panel of jurors. In 2014, 600 artists applied and 145 were invited. The jurors for 2014 are Jeffrey Adams, Director of the Appalachian Center for Craft at Tennessee Tech University in Cookeville, TN; Graham C. Boettcher, William Cary Hulsey Curator of American Art at the Birmingham Museum of Art in Alabama; Isaac Duncan III, President of Mid-South Sculpture Alliance, currently based in Chattanooga, Tennessee.
