MAIN ST. artists weave a diverse blend of texture and shape down a "magnificent mile" of red bricks in Downtown Fort Worth.
Under the white tents stretching along Main Street, and you will find the festival's "heart and soul," an enormous range of artworks — from sculpture to paintings, from the dramatic to the whimsical.
Our 2013 jury members are William Bailey, Jewelry; Tom Diel, Mixed Media; Ann Ekstrom, Painting; Sarah Rishel, Graphics & Printmaking; and Elaine Taylor, Gallery Manager, Fort Worth Community Arts Center.

Popularity does not insure an artist will go up in value over the years. Spend time learning about art and individual artists instead of following the latest art trends or styles of the moment. While purchasing expensive pieces by already established artists is one method of collecting, it's certainly not the only way and not necessarily the most profitable way in the long-term.
Buy what you love.
The artwork you purchase will presumably be in your home for a long time. Make sure you really love the artwork you buy and it will enhance your decor and add to your quality of life for years to come.
Think outside the box! Here's an opportunity to express yourself with items of jewelry, clothing or household items that are hand-crafted by skilled artists.
There is no right way to collect art.
Each individual or collector has his or her own method of purchasing art, and it can vary from: buying bundles of art at one time, purchasing a select piece once every year or two, commissioning a favorite artist to create individual work with personal meaning, etc. Find the style of collecting that best suits you and stick with that, but be sure to walk around MAIN ST. to get a feel for what might fit in best in your collection.
Our artists won't hesitate to answer whatever questions you may have when considering the purchase of a work of art. Provenance, condition, artist information, and history are all aspects of the piece that are very important to its value and your enjoyment of the work.
