Boca Fest Returns January 8 & 9, 2011

Featuring New Masters Art Fair With Live Demonstrations by Leading National & Local Artists

BOCA RATON, FL--(Marketwire - January 6, 2011) - Boca Fest, ranked one of the top art festivals in the country by Sunshine Artist, the nation's leading publication for art and craft shows, returns for its 24th anniversary on January 8 -9, 2011 at the Shops at Boca Center with live demonstrations by a select group of the participating artists. This new feature, Demonstrating Masters, will allow festivalgoers to see first hand how these top local and nationally recognized artists create their masterpieces. Admission is free.

This Boca tradition, produced by Howard Alan Events, attracts locals and tourists alike for its eclectic mix of original works of art.  The artists, juried by an independent panel of expert judges, are hand-selected from hundreds of applicants based on quality and diversity. "This is a great opportunity to explore the work of many different artists in one location," says art festival promoter Howard Alan. "The public can meet the artists and discuss their artwork before making a purchase, creating a personal experience and connection to the piece they bring into their home."

Howard Alan Events stipulates that all artists are required to be on-site for the entire duration of the art show, available to discuss their art and inspiration. The artists will line the Shops at Boca Center with their professional display booths, transforming the popular shopping and dining destination into a first-class outdoor art gallery. The artistic media represented include paintings, life size sculpture, photography, glass, wood, jewelry, collage and ceramics with prices ranging from $25 hand-designed earrings to $20,000 metal sculptures. 

Boca Fest, the number 1 top rated show in Boca Raton, makes the arts accessible to a broad audience. The event appeals to people of all ages as a free and fun weekend activity, as well as serious art buyers looking to add to their collections.
