On February 12, 2017, Indie South Fair hosted a popup arts market at Athens Cotton Press in Athens, Georgia. In attendance were over 40 independent vendors, all selling original creations forged from the artists’ own hands. From stamped metal jewelry to colorful fired ceramics, the market displayed row after row of diverse collections to tempt buyers. While the range of art was expansive, all pieces had one thing in common: love. As artists prepared for the Valentine’s-themed market, they created pieces that would not only show the love they have for their work, but also for the people who arrived to support the local artists of the Athens community.
The fair concluded at 6 p.m. and shoppers returned home with arms full of handmade treasures and hearts full of love.
