September 8, 2012 marked the first annual "Art Attack Fredericksburg" event. Local and regional artists took to the sidewalks of Caroline and William streets, set up their own outdoor studio, and created art for all to see. Visitors watched as artists sketched, painted, created sculptures and pottery pieces. In addition, live performances by belly dancers and musicians added to the street scene. After the day's tour of duty, the artists attended a picnic hosted by LibertyTown Arts Workshop.
Conceived by Bill Harris and Gabriel Pons, the mission of Art Attack is to show how incredibly rich this area is with talented artists and to showcase them doing what they do best. Art Attack recruits included as many as 60 artists ranging in ages 13 to gracefully gray. Below are just a handful of photographs from the day.
