Coconut Point Art Fair Returns to Estero This Fall With Nation's Finest Artists

Featuring the Excellence in Arts & the Art of Recycling Programs by Keep Lee County Beautiful; Leave the Scene Clean Calendar Art Contest Exhibition With Art by Lee County Students

ESTERO, FL--(Marketwire - November 16, 2010) - Howard Alan Events, producer of the country's top juried festivals, returns to Coconut Point with its second fine arts show of the year. The crowd-pleasing winter event takes place each February; the fall art show will celebrate its second anniversary November 20 - 21, once again transforming this popular retail and dining destination into an outdoor art gallery. The artistic media represented include paintings, life size sculptures, photography, glass, wood, jewelry, collage and ceramics, with prices ranging from $25 hand-designed earrings to $20,000 sculptures. Admission is free and open to the public.

This year Keep Lee County Beautiful, a civic organization dedicated to protecting the environment and improving the quality of life in Lee County, will be exhibiting winning works of their Leave the Scene Clean Calendar Art Contest. The winners, students of Lee County public schools in grades 1 - 12, will be featured in the 2011 calendar which will be sold during the art festival. The schools are also using the calendar as a fundraiser to offset budget deficits that threaten their art programs and environmental projects. In addition, volunteers will provide live demonstrations of Lee County's award winning recycling program and provide information and tips on how to Keep Lee County Beautiful.

The Coconut Point Fall Art Fair brings together the nation's most talented artists who will collectively display over $15 million in artwork. The artists, juried by an independent panel of expert judges and hand-selected from hundreds of applicants based on quality and diversity, will be present for the duration of the festival.

Interviews with participating artists and images of their work are available upon request.
