While many nationally-recognized artists will be on display, local creators will also be quite well-represented, many of them in attendance. Opportunities to socialize will abound, with chances to ask the artists any well-thought-out questions you might have. The more introverted crowd, though, will find it just as easy to quietly take in any of the works they so desire, methodically tracing the walls to find their favorite pieces. Whatever your style is, there's probably something for you out in one of the 20 locations around town. — Nick Warren
