Las Olas Kicks Off the New Year With Top Ranked Art Show in the Nation

FORT LAUDERDALE, FL--(Marketwire - December 29, 2010) -  The Las Olas Art Fair kicks off the season with the very first art show of 2011. This South Florida tradition, regarded as one of the top art events in America, has attracted locals and tourists alike for the past 23 years because of the wide variety of fine art on display and for sale. Only the top artists in the nation are selected to participate in this highly anticipated art festival. The artistic media represented include paintings, sculptures, photography, glass, wood, jewelry, collage, and ceramics with prices ranging from $25 hand-designed earrings to $20,000 metal sculptures. 

The new official Las Olas Art Fair poster will be available for sale during the festival. This year's poster artist, award-winning painter and mixed media artist Maria Reyes-Jones, has expertly captured the essence of Las Olas with its colorful shops and vibrant atmosphere. Her unique style and masterful composition makes this another collectible poster. Reyes-Jones will be on-site for the duration of the festival. Her work can be seen in private and corporate collections, galleries and at fine art shows around the country.

The Las Olas Art Fair makes the arts accessible to a broad audience, appealing to people of all ages as a free and fun weekend activity, as well as serious art buyers looking to add to their collections. "This is a great way to start the year," says art festival promoter Howard Alan. "Art Festival goers are able to stroll among the finest art in the country in one of the most beautiful settings in Fort Lauderdale and actually interact with the artists."
