Venice Welcomes Back Popular Art Festival March 3 & 4, 2012

VENICE, FL--(Marketwire - Feb 24, 2012) - Historic Downtown Venice welcomes back its signature art festival March 3 - 4, 2012. Festivalgoers will be treated to a wide variety of work in a myriad of mediums including paintings, sculptures, photos, glass, wood, jewelry, collage, and ceramics. Prices are set to suit all budgets and range from as little as $25 hand designed earrings to $30,000 sculptures. The festival benefits Venice Main Street, dedicated to preserving and maintaining downtown Venice as a desirable destination. Admission is free and open to the public.

The Downtown Venice Art Festival makes the arts accessible to a broad audience. The event attracts locals and tourists alike and appeals to people of all ages including families, art enthusiasts as well as serious art buyers.

The Downtown Venice Art Festival has expanded through the years with the community's support and has become a highly anticipated annual tradition in Venice.

"Festival goers return each year to see their favorite artists and to explore the work of new and emerging talent," says festival promoter Howard Alan. "It's a great opportunity to meet and connect with the artist before making a purchase, which makes the investment much more meaningful and personal."

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. All of the artwork is original and handmade in America and will be on display along the tree-lined streets of the downtown area.
