Even as we prepare this weekend for the 25th Anniversary Downtown Delray Beach Festival of the Arts, we’re excited about sharing new shows with you all that not only will give your family more reasons to love the arts, but it will give artists who are looking to participate in one of our shows the opportunity to apply for one of the coveted spots.
25th Anniversary Downtown Delray Beach Festival of the Arts: Meet Pat Kaufman
First, let’s talk about this weekend’s show. The 25th Anniversary Downtown Delray Beach Festival of the Arts has been a Delray Beach tradition for over two decades, and this weekend is a testament as to why: Amazing artists from over 30 states all across the country share their fine talents in this incredible two-day outdoor, fine art gallery-style juried show. Find some of the best sculptors, clay artists, painters, photographers and more in the Downtown Delray Beach area. There will be something for everyone this weekend, so grab a light sweater and come on out in the gorgeous Florida weather to enjoy some of the best artists around.
And don’t forget to stop by booth #51B and meet Pat Kaufman, our Featured Artist. A native of Delray Beach, Pat is an incredible talent whose vibrant watercolor paintings are quintessential Florida. A longtime Howard Alan Events artist, her work exemplifies the spirit of Delray Beach and of Florida living. Patrons, as usual, will have the opportunity to take home a gorgeous piece by our Featured Artist, and this weekend, it’s Pat Kaufman’s “Cottages of South Swinton Avenue.” As always, there is no purchase necessary to enter the giveaway.
