The 13th Bi-Annual Estero Fine Art Show takes place at the Miromar Outlet Mall on Saturday, January 4, and Sunday, January 5, 2014, giving art lovers an unparalleled opportunity to combine a day of art browsing and buying with shopping and dining at a venue that’s been voted Southwest Florida’s “Best Factory Outlet Shopping Center” 15 years in a row. This top-notch fine art & craft event brings to Estero, Florida new original paintings, drawings, pastels, photography, ceramics, clay, glass, sculpture, wood working and carvings, fiber art and art jewelry from the ateliers, studios and workshops of some 120 local and internationally-acclaimed artists.
The Naples Art Association‘s Downtown Naples New Year’s Art Fair returns to Naples’ Fifth Avenue South on the weekend of January 4-5, 2014. Last year, the artworks on display were valued collectively at nearly $15 million. As in years past, every category will be represented, from original oils and acrylics on canvas, panel and galvanized aluminum to watercolors on paper, 2D and 3D mixed media, limited edition prints, photography, digital art, metal sculpture, wood carvings, ceramics, hand-crafted jewelry, leather works and more. Because of its national ranking (Sunshine Artist ranked it as the #62 festival in the nation in 2011) and the beautiful weather in southwest Florida during this time of year, the Downtown Naples New Year’s Art Fair draws 200 of the finest artists in the country, which explains why more than 15,000 art enthusiasts turned out for this art fair last year.
Art in the Park will run alongside the Downtown Naples New Year’s Art Fair on Saturday, January 4. Art in the Park not only features work by Naples Art Association member artists in booths set up on Park Street outside The von Liebig Art Center, but art demonstrations by NAA artists plus art projects for the whole family. There are projects inside The von Liebig Art Center for the kids as well. Art in the Park is not just an add-on to the Downtown Naples New Year’s Art Fair. It is a festival that has stood on its own merits for more than 57 years.
