23rd Annual Downtown Sarasota Festival of the Arts


This weekend (February 19th & 20th), Howard Alan Events is proud to present the 23rd Annual Downtown Sarasota Festival of the Arts in Sarasota, Florida. This art festival is consistently ranked as one of the top 100 Fine Art Shows by Sunshine Artist Magazine, so this is an event not to miss!

The location of the festival is: 1592 Main St., Sarasota, FL. 34236. Times are Saturday & Sunday 10am-5pm. Admission is free and open to the public.

Now, here is a sneak peak of who you can expect to see at the show:

Su Abbott: Paintings

The first artist we would like to introduce to you is Su Abbott. Su finds inspiration for all her paintings in the subtleties of nature, in the myriad of people and colors she sees in her everyday life, and in the full diverse life she has led. To view more of her work, click HERE.

Ellen Bianchi: Mixed Media

Next, we have Ellen Bianchi. Ellen creates gorgeous and exclusive paper castings. Her true talent lies in developing a wide variety of media through truly new artistic and creative ways. You can view more of her exquisite work on her website, HERE.

Christiane Hampel: Jewelry

The final artist we are going to share with you today is Christiane Hampel. Christiane creates the most beautiful jewelry that you will ever see. She uses precious metals like 18k and 24k gold, as well as sterling silver and precious stones. However, the design is of much greater importance to Christiane than the intrinsic value of the materials that she works with. You can view more of their one-of-a-kind jewelry HERE.

We cannot wait to see these artists as well as 250 other talented artists at the 23rd Annual Downtown Sarasota Festival of the Arts this weekend! We will see YOU there!
