Deborah Davis was the featured artist this year. She paints large-scale works that realistically depict moths! She uses these to show off the beauty of the often-overlooked moth. Everyone at the festival was in awe of these beautiful works of art! If you look closely, you can also see a real moth specimen. Each work was accompanied by its real specimen, provided by a professor at Samford University.

Makers and Artisans Among the Autumn Leaves

Local artists and makers of all kinds lined the festival in tents to share their art, food, ceramics and more with the festival-goers. Among paintings, woodworking, honey, flowers and more was a section about smart living. The smart living section featured Gearbox Rentals, an adventure-van rental company. The company has renovated multiple vans and equipped them with everything you’ll need for an epic camping adventure. 

Everyone was in good spirits as they walked tent-to-tent, learning about and chatting with all the local artisans. 

The weather was a perfect 65 – 70 degrees with a sunny sky and a nice breeze on Saturday.
