Kudos, Mary Laura Philpott, 2012 Chair of Spotlight on Art. This year's Artists Market looks great (event 411 covered in Sunday's post). The organizing committee departed from tradition and bravely painted the backdrops black, a choice which, I think, really sets off the vast array of drawings, paintings, ceramics, and photography.

Black Stallion attracted a lot of attention during my visit, too. If you're partial to Henley's beach pieces, I did spot several including Sunday.

And again, Henley is just one of 350 regional artists and craftspeople showcased this year. SCAD alum Alejandra Dunphy is a returning favorite with her eco-friendly textiles. The Market will open very early -- 8 a.m. -- Wednesday through Friday this week. Also, if later hours work better for you, the doors stay open until 9 p.m. on Friday. Closing day, Saturday, the schedule is 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Pop in and survey the scene (Trinity School, 4301 Northside Parkway. The Phipps preview is now closed).
