Fort Mill Times

Variety of artists enliven Fort Mill's Art on Main

Artist Susan Heckler works woodblock prints, like the one she is carving here. She's found many of her customers want the actual blocks more than a print, she said.

Though the wind threatened to blow away some of the works on display during Saturday's third annual Art On Main, thousands of people were able to see works created by 38 artists from around the corner and as far away as Pennsylvania.

Throughout the day the crowd topped the most optimistic estimates organizers had leading up to the event. More than 100 people also toured the old vacant theater the town wants to use for an arts center.
