Recently ranked the #17 outdoor art show in the country according to Sunshine Artist magazine’s 2018 100 Best Fine Arts & Design Shows, the Naples New Year’s Art Show offers residents and visitors an alternative to football and a place to walk off calories from holiday eating. Shoppers will have the opportunity to mingle with about 250 professional artists from around the country. Last year’s show included artists from 27 states and four countries! Categories range from original oils and acrylics on canvas to watercolors, 2D and 3D mixed media, limited edition prints, photography, digital art, sculpture, wood carvings, ceramics, hand-crafted jewelry, leather works, and more. Augmenting the number of participating artists, available art and ambiance of the event on Saturday is Art in the Park. Art in the Park is an art fair held in Cambier Park by Naples Art Association members on the first Saturday of each month between November and April.
Unlike a gallery or museum, a fine art show, such as this one, offers savvy art enthusiasts the unique opportunity to meet the artists in person; commission a specific piece; ask questions about techniques; learn the sources of their inspiration and purchase fine works of art directly from the artists. There’s art for every taste and pocketbook.
