But it’s been a long time. Back when it was the Jean Lake Arts and Crafts Show, it was just that – an arts and crafts show. Today, TroyFest is vastly different. It’s a two-day show and it’s held in downtown Troy. There are so many different facets to it, and it’s a family affair. We have something for all ages — entertainment and games and activities for children and we have a lot of food vendors.“This year, we’ve added a Film Festival.

I think a lot of people will also be impressed by his work. And, another new artist that will have people talking is Katie Fernandez from Enterprise. She paints on old suitcases. Kind of art nouveau. It’s really interesting.”Adams also singled out Lynn Weatherford of Athens, who paints with broad strokes and a pallet knife, and John Warr of Scottsboro, whose Civil War and wildlife paintings are in great demand. By Jaine Treadwell TroyFest will feature a wide variety of arts and crafts including paintings, pottery, photography, jewelry, stained glass, woodwork, garden furniture, kids art, graphics, folk art, wooden toys, pet portraits and metal work.“It will be a good show and a lot of fun,” Adams said. “We invite everyone to come out one or both days and see what all TroyFest 2009 has to offer.” Sponsored Content Troy arts veteran impressed by lineup of artists Published 10:48 pm Thursday, April 23, 2009 Print Article “Allison Bohorfoush, Birmingham, is an artist who hand-hammers and chisels copper jewelry and boxes,” he said.“Her work is different in that it has a blacksmith look about it.
