Artsplosure’s mission is to produce quality events that make the works of the most imaginative and celebrated artists accessible to the public – all in an effort to enrich our community and inspire greater love for the visual and performing arts.

Enjoy artwork by over 170 juried fine artists and craftspeople exhibiting original works of art in 10 different categories. All will be available for purchase, including painting, photography, pottery, jewelry, woodwork, and more. Artists’ booths will line Fayetteville Street amongst music, art installations, food trucks, and more – all highlighting superb performing and visual artists. Visit Kidsplosure in it’s new location on Martin Street!
