Artists Take Over Overton Square for Art Squared

Art lovers across the mid-south made their way to Midtown Saturday afternoon.

"Art Squared", an art festival at Overton Square, brought talented artists from all across the country and in Memphis to show off their best work. Artists from 9 different states traveled to Memphis to participate in the event.

People strolled between a number of tents to check out some of the art work. Painters, potters and jewelers were just some of the artists at this event.

"We just want people to come out and join in the fun, watch the demonstrations, see how to make art and talk to the artist to find out why they make art", said Greg Bellz of ArtWorks Foundation.

The art festival will continue on Sunday April 19th from 11am to 5pm. You can find the festival on Cooper between Bar Louie and Hattieloo Theater.
