This weekend (July 8th-10th), Howard Alan Events is proud to present the 20th Anniversary Chicago Tribune North Michigan Avenue Art Festival in Chicago, Illinois. 

Bold and vibrant paintings, contemporary and whimsical art, life-size sculptures, photography and jewelry are among the original works of art that will be on display and for sale during Chicago’s premier summer art affair July 8 – 10, 2011.  The Chicago Tribune North Michigan Avenue Art Festival, now in its twentieth year, has been consistently voted one of the top 100 outdoor juried art festivals in the country by Sunshine Artist magazine. 

This wildly popular three day event, one of the top art affairs in the country as well as in the city of Chicago, features more than 300 of the country’s leading artists including the finest local talent.  All artists are juried by an independent panel of expert judges and hand-selected from hundreds of applicants based on quality and diversity. All of their artwork is original and handmade in America. Prices range from $25 hand designed earrings to $30,000 metal life size sculptures. 

Admission is free. Times are Friday & Saturday 10am-6pm and Sunday 10am-5pm. The navigation address is: Pioneer Court – 435 N Michigan Ave., Chicago, IL 60611.

Here are a few of the artists you will be able to meet this weekend:

Eric Nye: Mixed Media

The first artist we would like to introduce to you is Eric Nye. Eric creates 3D functional art objects made from wood which incorporate his original designs and photographs into an interactive art piece. Each shape has three sides, each containing a different image. When the viewer rotates a piece they create a new composition. What an incredible piece of art! You can learn more about Eric HERE.

Scott Fishman: Photography

Next, we have Scott Fishman. Scott has a keen eye for detail. He is constantly drawn to the enticing colors and intricate patterns that are often overlooked and under appreciated in today’s hurried world. His photography is phenomenal! Click HERE for more information about the artist.

Tavlos: Paintings

The final artist we are going to share with you today is Tavlos. Tavlos paints in the present tense. The past and the future are intensely present in each electrifying image. His work always has mirrored each decade in which he has been present and painting. You can view more of this talented artist’s work HERE.

You will be able to meet these artists mentioned above along with 200 of the nation’s top artists! This is a must-see summer event!
