Circles_ardolinoWe’re heading to St. Armands Circle in Sarasota this weekend for the 11th Annual St. Armand Art Festival, friends, and we’re looking forward to seeing you all there. We have another great show planned for you, and an awesome Featured Art Giveaway featuring the art of talented painter Jennifer Ardolino, who is giving away her gorgeous piece, “Circles.” Be sure to stop by booth #89 this weekend and enter the Featured Art Giveaway for your chance to win “Circles” by Jennifer Ardolino. As always, there is no purchase necessary to enter the giveaway.

But back to the help part — why do we need your help? Because we need Instagram followers! Those of you who follow us on Facebook may have noticed the increase in photo posts. We feel that telling you about the festivals is simply not as powerful as showing you, so that’s what we’re doing.


Our Howard Alan Events staff has been hard at work posting directly from the venues during setup, festival hours and beyond, and it’s been awesome. But we want to see what YOU see. We want to experience the art festivals from your perspective. That is why, this weekend, we’re asking you to be a part of our Instagram Street Team!
