November is finally here and we’re finally changing up our shorts and tanks in favor of slightly warmer, cozier clothes (only slightly, though — it is Florida, after all…). Put on your cozy sweaters and come greet November with Howard Alan Events at the 27th Annual Downtown Venice Art Festival, happening this Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 1 & 2, from 10 a.m.- 5 p.m. in beautiful West Venice Avenue.
With some of the country’s best artists converged in this wonderful little nook of South Florida, the Downtown Venice Art Festival is the perfect place to start your holiday shopping and gear up for the thanksgiving season. Bring the whole family to this free art event, where you can find original, eclectic pieces by some of the best established and emerging artists in the U.S. Whether you’re looking to add a new photograph to your collection or are searching for the perfect piece of holiday jewelry for your love, there is something for everyone at the Downtown Venice Art Festival.
This year’s Downtown Venice Art Festival has a couple of exciting things going on.
Once again, one lucky patron will take home a breathtaking piece in our festival’s Featured Artist Giveaway. Attend this weekend’s festival and enter to win artwork by participating sculptor Josef Belchatovski. The prize, an original copper and bronze handcrafted fountain will be on display at his booth, where registration will also take place.
This year’s festival features a 2014 Collectors’ Edition festival poster, featuring the work of artist Diane Chencharick. The poster will be available for purchase on site during the art festival. A little about our festival poster artist:
“Diane’s primary medium is watercolor but she also uses inks and acrylic paints. Her work has been displayed in galleries as well as in juried fine art shows throughout the country.
The original work that graces this year’s poster is a combination of watercolor and acrylic paints. Diane chose the Venice Beach pavilion as the recognizable feature along with stylized flamingos inspired by the retro art style of one of her favorite artists. Additional information about Diane and her work can be found on her website.”
