ANDERSONVILLE — Andersonville will be turned into a “walkable art gallery” for the return of a popular event.

Andersonville Arts Weekend is Friday-Sunday throughout the neighborhood. It will feature a self-guided art walk, artist gallery receptions and an outdoor art fair.

The event will see more than 100 artists featured at dozens of shops.

New this year is the Andersonville Arts Weekend Artist’s Fête, an outdoor art market 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday-Sunday on Catalpa Avenue between Clark Street and Ashland Avenue.

The market will include at least a dozen artists and vendors selling art prints, clothing, jewelry and vintage goods. Admission is a suggested $5 donation.

Also new this year is an Andersonville Wine Art Walk, a wine-and-art pairing 3-6 p.m. Sunday. The event features stops at 15 businesses. Tickets cost $45.

The 18th annual arts weekend will kick off 5 p.m. Friday with the Night of Parties, a series of artist reception events held at local businesses. Many businesses will host meet-and-greets with the artist they are featuring in their stores along with small receptions offering food and beverages.
