COLUMBIA - Art demonstrations, live music and conversation filled the halls of the Parkade Center in Columbia on Saturday and Sunday.

The 4th annual Fall Into Art festival brought more than 50 artists from across Missouri and dozens of people to Columbia. Artists displayed and sold their jewelry, photography, paintings, wood carvings, pottery and more.

Concrete artist Dale Schmid said he travels to festivals because they give artists like himself a chance to show their hard work to the public.

"Well this is a free enterprise and it's a pure expression of it where someone gets an idea to make something handmade and do it with love and care and bring it here and people recognize it as quality," Schmid said.

Event coordinator Farah Nieuwenhuizen said this is the largest number of artists the event has ever had, and there were a large number of eduational booths this year. Some provided demonstrations on a specific skill while others gave children a chance to explore their creativity. Lee Expressive Arts Elementary School even sponsored a contest for patrons to vote for their favorite artist.

"We had tremendous number of people coming through. We were very happy about it. It was a great show," Nieuwenhuizen said.

Nieuwenhuizen said she plans to have the event again next year and hopes to have even more artists than this year.
