Sarasota’s popular fall art festival, consistently ranked among the top 100 outdoor juried shows in the country, returns to St. Armands Circle November 11- 12, 2011. Traditionally held in October, this fine art show has officially been moved to the 2nd weekend in November, for the cooler, more pleasant temperatures. St. Armands Circle will be energized by the vibrant original art on display that will engage and intrigue festivalgoers of all ages. Admission is free and open to the public.
A vast array of original handmade art, priced to suit all budgets, will be on display and for sale during this two-day art extravaganza. The artistic media represented include paintings, life size sculpture, photography, glass, wood, jewelry, collage and ceramics with prices ranging from $25 hand-designed earrings to $30,000 metal sculptures. An eclectic mix of styles by 150 of the finest artists in the country will line St. Armands Circle and transform this charming retail and dining district into a first-class outdoor art gallery.
“Festivalgoers will have the opportunity to reconnect with some of their favorite artists that return each year and meet new artists that will be participating in this show for the first time,” says festival promoter Howard Alan. “It is a great venue in which to explore the distinct and varied styles of many different artists.”
The artists, juried by an independent panel of expert judges and hand-selected from hundreds of applicants based on quality and diversity, will be present for the duration of the festival, available to discuss their art and inspiration. The event appeals to families and people of all ages as a free and fun weekend activity, as well as serious art buyers looking to add to their collections.
