TroyFest draws diverse group of artists

first_img Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits “With increased sponsor support, we are able to have a wider range of advertising,” Baker said. “The result is that we generate more interest and get more participation.”The artists will exhibit fine arts and crafts on the downtown square on Saturday, 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. and Sunday, 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. Several artists will demonstrate their trade and talents.“With more than a dozen food vendors plus kids activities and community booths, we will have the largest TroyFest yet,” Baker said.“Many of our artists are returning favorites such as Charles Adams, stained glass; Dawn Prietz, pottery; Bill Hill, drawing; Dwight Ward, bird shacks; Gail Carroll, pottery and Delia Stone, jewelry. We have several new artists that we expect will draw a lot of interest. We have a portrait artist as well as a caricature artist this year. Cliché aside, the 9th Annual TroyFest is shaping up to be the “biggest and best ever.”Stephanie Baker, TroyFest arts/crafts chair, said that TroyFest 2011 could boast of both the quality and quantity of the exhibitors.“I really think this is our best year ever with 75 of the areas most highly regarded artists and craftsmen participating,” Baker said. “I would like to think that TroyFest is growing our reputation among artists and that our return artists are recommending us when they go to other shows. We offer good hospitality and the community welcomes the artists and craftsmen enthusiastically.”Baker said another reason for the growing interest in TroyFest is the increasing number of festival sponsors.
