Belleville’s Art on the Square has become the top art fair in the nation.”This is like a big Christmas present,” director Patty Gregory said. “I have absolutely been blown away by this.”

Art on the Square received its No. 1 ranking for the 2008 Art Fair SourceBook. The Portland, Ore.-based book judges art fairs on their sales figures. This year, Art on the Square generated about $1.15 million in sales, or an average of $10,842 for each of the 106 artists who participated.

Gregory said those numbers are “amazing” for a town of 42,000 people.
