Published On: Tue, Jan 22nd, 2013 Presents 4th Annual Boca Raton Fine Art Show™

The 4th Annual Boca Raton Fine Art Show™ on January 19 & 20, 2013 takes place in downtown Boca, on the corner of Federal Highway at Palmetto Park Road.  The event focus is visual arts and community enrichment. You will see many high quality artists at the show that you have not seen at other area shows.  All disciplines of art are for sale including sculpture, paintings, clay, glass, fiber, jewelry, photography and more!  All work is original and personally handmade by the artist in the show.  There is something for everyone, with art in all price ranges.  In addition to the great art, there is great food, fun entertainment and a budding artist art competition for kids.

The event is located outdoors in the heart of downtown Boca, on Federal Highway at Palmetto Park Road, and in Sanborn Square Park. Federal Highway, between Palmetto Park Road and NE 2nd Street, will be closed on Friday, January 18, from 1pm until Sunday, January 20, it will re-open by 10pm.  Event hours are Saturday, January 19 & Sunday, January 20, from 10 to 5 daily.  There is free admission, and plenty of free parking in the area. The event brings much economic impact into Boca Raton and the surrounding communities.  The Boca Raton Fine Art Show™ has been voted #68 by Art Fair Source Book, a nationwide trade publication for art fairs.

The event is juried by art professionals whom have been in the art business for more than 30 years each; a biography of our show judges is on the website,  Artwork is juried based on technique/execution, originality, and booth appearance.  There is $1,500 in professional artist awards, which include two $500 judge’s award of excellence, and five $100 awards of excellence. Hot Works commitment to keep the buy/sell or manufactured work out of the show is of upmost importance, as this has become somewhat of a nationwide issue with buy/sell creeping into our juried art shows.

The Institute for the Arts & Education, Inc.  is the 501(c)3 non-profit organization whose focus is visual arts & community enrichment.  As part of our commitment to include art education into the Boca Raton Fine Art Show™, there is a Budding Artists Art Competition for grades 6-12 or ages 9-19. Young artists are encouraged to create their original and personally handmade art, as they begin to learn the rules of being part of a professional art show. The young artists are invited to speak with the professional artists in the show, too, and it exposes the families to great art.  All entries of the Budding Artists Art Competition are publicly displayed in the Budding Artists Art Competition tent.  There is $250 in Budding Artists Art Awards.
