How to Help The Artists of Athfest

As you have probably heard by now, Athfest has been cancelled for the second year in a row. While absolutely necessary given the current rate of Covid spread in our community, it is still utterly devastating to everyone involved. So below is a list of all the artists who were confirmed for the Artist Market and links to where you can find their work. Just click on the BOLD name to get there.

PLEASE consider buying some artwork from these folk. If your link is wrong email me asap at athensmusicjunkie@gmail.com and I will fix it. I’m not as familiar with the art world so I appreciate your patience. We’ll have another post for the bands impacted soon. Thanks.
