A first-ever art event on Covington's Historic Court Square was met with rave reviews. 

"Most of the vendors were happy and most of the merchants were happy," said Lee Johnston, executive director of the Covington-Tipton County Chamber of Commerce. 

Dozens of artists displayed booths containing some of their work – pottery, paintings, framed photography, handcrafted jewelry, wall art and more – bringing both color and life to the square. 

On Tuesday night, Jere Hadley, owner of Hadley House Antiques, said events such as this have been helping the businesses located nearby. 

"There were a lot of folks who came to our square who hadn't been here before," said mayor David Gordon. "They're finding out what a jewel it is."
