Guide to MAIN ST. Fort Worth Arts Festival: an artist's perspective

01/15/2010

Fort Worth, TX -- He's been everywhere, man. Fort Worth artist Gregory Story travels more than 18 weeks a year, logging 20,000 miles or more to show at major art festivals from coast to coast, but there will be no place like home April 8-11, 2010.

That's when Story's hometown show, MAIN ST. Fort Worth Arts Festival, opens for its 25th year and spreads a mile-long public gallery of fine art and entertainment across the heart of a city that's home to some of the world's most celebrated art collections.

MAIN ST., one of the nation's top three fine arts fairs, combines with the city's museum district to lure artists, art and music lovers and collectors who pack downtown Fort Worth each year with crowds numbering in six figures. An estimated $4 million in art is bought and sold at the show, and Story has been a part of it for 10 years as an exhibitor, volunteer, juror and member of its Artists Advisory Committee.
