Tallahassee, Fla. (WTXL) - More than 150 fine artists from across the region were welcomed to take over the downtown area in the Capitol City. 

In the midst of the live oak trees and Spanish moss that normally crowd the plaza in downtown Tallahassee the 14th annual Lemoyne Chain of Parks Art Festival started Saturday. 

Juries of art experts selected the artists that brought their work out to display.

Kelly Dozier, the event's director, says, "A lot of the artist here that get juried in are local and that speaks to the talent that we actually have here in Tallahassee... Bringing out-of-town artist gives them an opportunity to talk to other artists, compare their work, learn about other people's methods and see what's going on everywhere else in the country."

The festival is two days long, and will continue to highlight the work of artists in the Big Bend through the end of the day Sunday.

The event is family friendly, and features a "make and take" craft area for the little ones.
