The Georgia Chalk Artists Guild was well represented at the 2015 Sarasota International Chalk Festival! Participating members included Katie, Jessi, Zach and Dianne. Katie arrived a few days early to help with the Guinness World Record painting. The festival lasts 3 days, giving the artists around 20 hours to complete their large pieces.
Here’s a shot of Jessi and Zach getting Jessi’s piece set up on Miami Avenue
Katie didn’t get much done on day 1…

Jessi’s almost done with her piece!
Zach (finally!) flew solo and did his own piece at the festival. It was a technical masterpiece. Congrats, Zach!
