Presented alongside AthFest’s musical festivities, the second Athens Art Book Fair is a showcase of the visual arts. The event brings together a variety of art books made by local and regional artists to go on view for the public and offer an affordable way to collect local art. Guests will see a wide range of techniques and subject matter on display and will even be able to connect with the artists and publishers involved in producing the works. The event is organized by UGA’s Art Library librarian, Lindsey Reynolds, and printmaking professor Jon Swindler, who says, “I always think back to the thrill of having a little money to spend at the book fair in elementary school—the Athens Art Book Fair will be like that except the work is all unique and predominantly handmade!”
