Columbus, OH—Fashion-savvy shoppers on the lookout for signature pieces know that the Columbus Arts Festival produced by the Greater Columbus Arts Council June 6, 7, and 8 at the Downtown Riverfront is the perfect place to find finely crafted, one-of-a-kind, wearable works of art.

More than 60 local and national artists specializing in jewelry, leather and fabric designs will offer an eclectic assortment of apparel and accessories at a variety of prices ranges at this year’s Festival.

Searching for that bold statement piece? The eye-catching handmade jewelry by Diana Dinka of Tamarac, FL is sure to make any outfit pop. The beads are handmade and designed by Diana herself using a practice of glass molding called “lampworking”. These bright interesting pieces are one of a kind and sure to impress.

Festival goers should also look to Kathleen Tesnakis of Ekologic in Troy, NY, whose clothes are not only fashionable but also 99% recycled. For those looking for the perfect leather accessory stop by Dana Novakovich of Marshfield, MO for bags, belts, stationary accessories and much more.

For beautiful art to wear fashion, festival goers should see Herion Park of Osprey, FL who hand dyes and dye paints various organic material to turn into one of a kind evening and special occasion wear.
