The Estero Fine Art Show takes place twice annually in the fall and in the winter. Upcoming dates are November 15 & 16, 2014 and January 3 & 4, 2015. Juried by art professionals, this high quality fine art & craft event brings world-renowned & top notch local artists to sell their paintings, clay, glass, sculpture, wood, fiber, jewelry, photography and more at the Miromar Outlet Mall in the fall and the Miromar Design Center in January. All work is original and hand made by the artist who is present at the show and happy to answer any questions about their work. You will see artists at this event that you do not see at other Florida shows. Live art demonstrations allow many opportunities for the patrons to be able to understand the processes that the artists' go through to create their specific medium. There is also live entertainment, which does not interfere with patron and artist. Our goal is to create an atmosphere that enhances the artwork and creates a relaxing environment for art lovers.
Hot Works events focus on the visual arts and are juried by art professionals and artists. While music and food are part of the experience, they are not permitted to intrude in the relationship between artist and patron. Our marketing focuses on the quality of art work and the mission is to bring serious art shoppers with the means to purchase art that they appreciate. The focus is on quality of work. We want to make our events a pleasant experience for all, and welcome any comments or suggestions at any time.
The Bi-Annual Estero Fine Art Show invites young artists to create art work to enter into Youth Art Competition. The call for youth art entries invites kids ages 5-12, or grades Kindergarten through 8, to submit their art work to be publicly displayed at the event, and also for the opportunity to win a cash prize! The art work entered will be placed in a tent labeled “Youth Art Competition”. The Youth Art Competition encourages kids to use more of their imagination and creativity when they know that their work is going to be submitted to a high quality art show for public display and with the opportunity to win cash!
