“Our jury process is very selective, this is how we ensure a diverse and eclectic mix of styles and media that appeal to a broad variety of art enthusiasts and collectors,” says festival promoter Howard Alan.  “There is truly something for everyone.”

Times are Saturday & Sunday 10am-5pm. Admission is free and open to the public. The navigational address is: 23130 Fashion Drive, Estero, FL 33928.

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

Cameron Gillie : Photography

The first artist we would like to introduce to you is Cameron Gillie. Cameron’s true passion in photography has always been photographing the wonders of the natural world that we all are so closely intertwined with, but in our day to day life between work and home, rarely stop to appreciate. You can learn more about this artist HERE.

Bruce Holwerda : Paintings

Next, we have Bruce Holwerda. People are always wondering where Bruce gets his ideas. If he were to be honest, one painting session years ago he veered off course a bit and took a serious pose and got wacky with it. He remembers thinking “This is what I’m supposed to do”. You can view his online gallery of work HERE.

Nancy Lee Judd : Jewelry

Finally, we would like to introduce to you Nancy Lee Judd. Nancy started her jewelry career in 1985 in New Orleans apprenticing with some very talented jewelers. She has worked in most areas of the jewelry industry and has attended many traveling seminars and clinics. Her work is gorgeous! You can see more of her collections HERE.

You will be able to meet the artists mentioned above along with 150 other artists from around the United States! Don’t be the one to miss out on this terrific event.
