The finest artists in the country will converge upon St. Armands Circle for the 11th Annual St. Armands Circle Art Festival this weekend, January 25 - 26, 2014. They will be present for the duration of this popular two-day juried art event, available to discuss their art and techniques. A wide array of original art with broad appeal, representing a myriad of styles and media, will be on display and for sale with prices set to suit all budgets. A portion of the proceeds benefits the St. Armands Circle Association.
Festival patrons will have the opportunity to win artwork by participating artist Jennifer Ardolino. This award-winning artist transforms her subjects into vivid wonderfully colored images that transport the viewer into the scenes. The rich palette of the tropics and the beauty of nature have provided Jennifer with endless inspiration. Her chosen media extend from the supple natural beauty of watercolors to the strong vivid colors of acrylics. Her work has gained national and international recognition and can be found in many galleries and hotels throughout Florida and the Caribbean, as well as in corporate and private collections.

The prize, an original 24" x 28" watercolor painting titled "Circles" and valued at $400 will be on display at Jennifer's booth throughout the weekend where registration will also take place. No purchase is necessary to participate in this art giveaway and the winner will be announced during the final hour of the art show.
