South Ocean Boulevard on Lake Worth Beach will be transformed into a world class outdoor art gallery and craft market when Lake Worth Beach ArtFest debuts November 23 – 24, 2013. Festival patrons will be delighted by the eclectic displays of original works of art including bold and vibrant paintings, contemporary and whimsical life-size sculptures, photography, handcrafted jewelry and a separate craft market with unique handmade items. A craft beer and wine garden, a kid’s activity zone, live music and a free art giveaway further enhances the festival experience at this oceanfront venue. Admission to the art show is free and open to the public. Festival promoter Howard Alan Events produces many award-winning juried art fairs throughout the country including the Las Olas Art Fairs, the Downtown Delray Beach Festival of the Arts, ArtFest by the Sea and many others. The artists are juried by an independent panel of expert judges and are hand-selected from hundreds of applicants based on quality and diversity in order to ensure a wide array of original artwork. “We are thrilled to provide Lake Worth with a first class art show,” says Howard Alan, founder of Howard Alan Events. “This area is evolving, defining itself as a unique arts destination and I believe our event will be a perfect complement to these efforts.” All of the proceeds generated by the City of Lake Worth during the festival will go directly to the beach fund and will be used in the maintenance of the Lake Worth Casino Building and Beach Complex. This two-day event will showcase the finest work of more than 100 leading artists in the country and will appeal to people of all ages including families, art enthusiasts and serious collectors looking for new and emerging talent. The artists will line South Ocean Boulevard along the beach with their gallery style booths and will be on site for the duration of the show, available to discuss their art, techniques and inspiration. An Art Giveaway will provide festival patrons an opportunity to win artwork by an exhibiting artist. No purchase is necessary to participate in this giveaway. Art shows produced by Howard Alan Events have the distinction of making the arts accessible to a broad audience with prices set to suit all budgets, from $25 hand-designed earrings to $50,000 metal sculptures. “We provide an ideal setting in which to explore the work of many different artists in one location,” remarks Howard Alan. “You have the opportunity to meet and connect with the artist before making a purchase, which makes the investment much more meaningful and personal.” WHAT: Lake Worth Beach ArtFest WHEN: November 23 – 24, Saturday & Sunday, 10:00 am – 5:00 pm WHERE: 10 South Ocean Boulevard – Lake Worth Beach Complex WHY: To Support the Arts and the Lake Worth Beach community ADMISSION: Free and open to the public WEBSITE: www.artfestival.com CONTACT INFORMATION: info@artfestival.com or 561-746-6615
