Thomasville-  Artists from all over the United States will make their way to Thomasville this weekend for the 11th annual Plantation Wildlife Arts Festival. 

Artists began setting up Friday. The show will feature wood carvers and sculptors, ceramics, and paintings. The proceeds from the event benefit the Thomasville Cultural Center, but the community profits too. 

"It's also a huge economic development hit for Thomasville because we have people coming into hotels and restaurants and to shop and a lot of people who come in this is the first time they've ever seen Thomasville," said T.J. Adams, Festival Coordinator. 

A preview party will be held Friday night for the festival's underwriters. The Festival will be open to the public Saturday and Sunday from 10:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m.  The cost is $10.00 for adults, $5.00 for kids under 10 and children under four are free.
