Sharon Kusha: Cover Artist For Tequesta Magazine

Standard

As you may know, Howard Alan Events & American Craft Endeavors has moved to Tequesta, Florida. The reason this is being brought up is because one of our artists who exhibits in many of our shows, created the cover art for the Tequesta Magazine. Sharon Kusha’s art work was featured on the cover of the October issue!

You can take a look below:

Sharon Kusha: Cover Artist for October Issue of Tequesta Magazine

Sharon Kusha is an acrylic painter. She lived in Key West, Florida where she began painting the homes she adored because of their charm and tropical settings. Because all the homes she painted were on back streets, she named her company BackStreet Images, Inc. Today, Sharon lives in Deland, Florida and travels around the country exhibiting in prestigious art festivals.

We felt the cover of this magazine was stunning! Congrats Sharon!

Looking For An Artist?

Standard

We understand that attending an art festival can be overwhelming, especially when you are surrounded by beautiful and stunning artwork. There is so much to look at, and better yet – so many different pieces of artwork to possibly buy!

Perhaps there may have been an artist whose work you were “looking at”, and you couldn’t decide whether or not you wanted to purchase the piece. Also, you forgot to grab a business card or ask for contact information.

Now, here you are one month later and you must have this piece of artwork.

We have great news for you! We can help you find the artist you are looking for. As long as you give us as much detailed information as possible, we can most likely identify your artist.

If you were at one of our art festivals and need to find an artist, you can send us an email at info@artfestival.com. We will do our best to find your artist!

Happy Customers
