The 2012 TACA Spring Craft Fair!
TENNESSEE ASSOCIATION OF CRAFT ARTISTS
NASHVILLE TRADITION CELEBRATES FOUR DECADES OF CRAFT IN THE PARK
The Tennessee Association of Craft Artists will hold the 41st anniversary of the TACA Tennessee Craft Fair May 4, 5 & 6 at Nashville’s Centennial Park.
Visitors will enjoy a special treat with the addition of painters and other traditionally fine artists to this historically fine craft event, joining the more than 160 Tennessee craft artists who will have work on display during the three-day event.
The green grass of Centennial Park will again bloom white as the tents of artists from Memphis to Johnson City prepare for this exciting anniversary.
From platforms on tree-trunks to a footprint covering most of the lawn in front of the Parthenon, this year’s annual kickoff of springtime is not to be missed. In addition to the fine craft artists synonymous with TACA, Tennessee fine artists will be represented by skilled painters and the Demonstration Tent will house exciting opportunities for the public to see the hands behind that favorite mug and the skill of woodturning with live demonstrations.
The TACA Craft Fairs are produced by the Tennessee Association of Craft Artists (TACA), an independent, statewide nonprofit organization and recipient of the Tennessee Governor’s Award in the Arts. By maintaining high standards of excellence, the Tennessee Association of Craft Artists is appreciated for producing festivals representing the finest in American craftsmanship. We are proud to be a part of Celebrate Nashville, the #1 Craft Fair in Tennessee as designated by Harris List, and as one of the 200 Best List by the Sunshine Artist magazine.
Founded in 1965, TACA is a statewide, nonprofit organization dedicated to encouraging, developing and promoting crafts and craftspeople in Tennessee. Through the use of Craft Fairs, TACA works to expose the residents of Tennessee to the art of fine craft, while providing a forum for creative and personal expression for the artists.
