Naples Fine Art Show December 15 & 16, 2018 Outdoors at Galleria Shoppes at Vanderbilt Call for Youth Artists Ages 5-13 or Grades K-8 Applications must be postmarked by November 25

Join us December 15 & 16 for Hot Works’ Naples Fine Art Show - located outdoors at Galleria Shoppes at Vanderbilt in Naples! This art show is juried by art professionals - all work is original and personally handmade by the artist participating in the show. The Naples Fine Art Show showcases 100+ professional artists with all discipline for sale including paintings, sculpture, clay, glass, wood, fiber, jewelry, photography, and more. There is something for everyone, in all price ranges.

The Naples Fine Art Show is sponsored by Hot Works, a professionally produced fine art show by an executive director with an outstanding national reputation with four top 100 art shows in America. Institute for the Arts & Education is the 501c3 non-profit arm which focuses on visual arts, cultural diversity, community enrichment, and fostering art education amongst youth.

As part of our commitment to include art education in the Naples Fine Art Show and the community, a Youth Art competition is integrated within the event. Young artists in grades K-8 or ages 5-13 are invited to apply with their original and personally handmade art. This competition gives budding, young artists a golden opportunity to begin learning the rules of being part of a professional art show and exhibition.

The Youth Art Competition is provided with a premium location within the show to display all of the budding artist entries. As art programs are being dramatically cut and eliminated in schools nationwide, the need for such initiatives is made even more relevant.

On Sunday, December 16 at 3pm in the “Youth Art Competition” booth, there is $250 in cash awards provided to four winners, along with a beautiful, colorful two-foot-long ribbon. Criteria for judging the youth art is technique/execution and originality, which is similar for judging of the professional artist awards. Photographs of the winners and other youth art participants will be taken.
The deadline for youth art entries is November 25. A Youth Art Competition application is available at www.hotworks.org Please mail applications to PO Box 1425, Sarasota, FL 34230. The application fee is $3 per entry; with up to two entries per student accepted. There is Free Admission and Free Parking. Event hours are Saturday and Sunday, from 10am-5pm daily.
