Signature Art Festival Returns to Downtown Delray Beach Thanksgiving Weekend

Wide Variety of Fine Art and Unique Gifts on Display and for Sale; Offers Alternative Holiday Shopping

DELRAY BEACH, FL--(Marketwire - November 22, 2010) - The Downtown Delray Beach Thanksgiving Weekend Art Festival returns November 27 - 28 with the country's finest artists. Pineapple Grove, Downtown Delray's popular art district, will be transformed into a first class outdoor art gallery with a wide variety of artwork including paintings, sculptures, photography, glass, wood, jewelry, collage, and ceramics. Admission is free and open to the public.

This two-day art show makes the arts accessible to a broad audience. Prices range from $25 hand-designed earrings to $20,000 metal sculptures. The art fair appeals to family and friends as a free and fun weekend activity, as well as serious art buyers looking to add to their collections. Timed with the Thanksgiving weekend, the art festival is also expected to attract holiday shoppers seeking unique gift items. "Art fairs offer a great alternative to crowded mall shopping during the holiday season, particularly over Thanksgiving, the biggest retail weekend of the year," points out Howard Alan, art festival promoter. "Art Festival goers can do some holiday shopping while supporting the artists; art is a fabulous investment you can enjoy while it appreciates in value."

The artists, juried by an independent panel of expert judges and hand-selected from hundreds of applicants based on quality and diversity, will be on site for the duration of the show and available to discuss their art and inspiration. All of their artwork is original and handmade in America.
