Elm Street Cultural Arts Village’s annual Art on the Green festival returns from 1-6 p.m. Sunday on the Elm Street Event Green, 111 Elm St. in Woodstock.

The seventh annual open air art market, which is offering an added digital option for artists and guests this year, will feature local artists from around North Georgia to display their art which includes paintings, mixed media, photography, hand-crafted jewelry, one-of-a-kind gifts, and more.

“Art on the Green is a wonderful crafty event where you can explore the creativity in your community and support local artists,” Education Director Siobhan Brumbelow of Elm Street said. “There’s a variety of artistic mediums and handmade pieces to enjoy. Purchasing from your local artists not only supports the arts, but makes for a perfect holiday gift.”

Elm Street is adapting to COVID-19 concerns by offering a special digital market to feature artists and encourage online sales.

“The digital medium is not going away anytime soon, so it makes perfect sense to have an online platform to continue to serve our community through the arts,” Elm Street’s Marketing Manager Justin Spainhour-Roth said. “This is a great way to connect to our artists who may not feel comfortable attending an in-person art show just yet as well as guests who feel the same but still want to support local art and artisans.”

The digital market will have exclusive items for purchase and will be made available online from the start of Art on the Green on Oct. 4 at 1 p.m., through Oct. 10 at 11:59 p.m. Art on the Green is appropriate for all ages to attend.

Elm Street Cultural Arts Village is closely monitoring COVID-19 outbreaks as well as spikes and is working to ensure proper social distancing guidelines are met. Elm Street’s full guidelines can be found at elmstreetarts.org/events/art-on-the-green.
