33rd Annual Siesta Fiesta – April 30th & May 1st, 2011


This weekend (April 30th & May 1st), Howard Alan Events & American Craft Endeavors are proud to present the 33rd Annual Siesta Fiesta in Sarasota, Florida. 

Bold and vibrant paintings, contemporary and whimsical art, life-size sculptures, photography and jewelry are among the original works of art that will transform this popular destination into an outdoor gallery style art show. In addition a full spectrum of quality craft mediums will be on display and for sale.  A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Siesta Key Village Association.  Admission is free and open to the public. Times are Saturday & Sunday from 10am-5pm. The address is: 5124 Ocean Blvd., Sarasota, FL 34242.

Now, we would like to introduce to you some of the talented Artists & Fine Crafters you will see at the show this weekend:

Brendan Coudal: Painting

The first artist we would like to introduce to you is Brendan Coudal. Brendan tries to tell a story with his art at every turn. He loves the action created by powerful sailfish chasing a lure, the serenity of a sandhill crane lazily poised at a lake’s edge & the innocence of a baby loggerhead turtle on its way to a destined journey. His paintings are truly magnificent. You can see more of his work HERE.

Jim & Ann Golm: Wood Cutting Boards

Next, we would like to introduce to you Jim & Ann Golm. Jim & Ann engrave artwork, sayings & logos on beautiful bamboo cutting boards. These are excellent and unique gifts! For more information about their artwork, click HERE.

Shirley Wilson: Soap

The final Fine Crafter we are going to introduce to you today is Shirley Wilson. Shirley hand-makes soaps, shea body creme, body wash & many other products that give your skin a natural glow. Her company is called “Pampered Hearts”, and has proven to be successful at many Art & Craft fairs across the state of Florida. You can see more of her products on her website HERE.

You will be able to meet the Artists & Fine Crafters mentioned above along with 150 other very talented artists. Don’t be the one to miss out on this terrific annual event!
