This is a high-quality, juried fine art and fine craft show where all work is original and personally handmade by the artist who is present at the show. The facility offers plenty of patron parking and popular location. Hot Works’ Naples Fine Art Show brings much positive national exposure and economic impact into southwest Florida; it is the perfect community event to be part of.The Naples Fine Art Show is open on Saturday and Sunday from 10am-5pm. The focus is visual arts and features fine art and fine crafts created by award-winning artists from around the world with all discipline for sale – paintings, clay, glass, sculpture, fiber, wood, jewelry and more – all juried by art professionals. Great food from local area restaurants and music add to the ambiance of this beautiful show. As part of our commitment to bring art education into the community, the Youth Art Competition for ages 5-13 or grades K-8 is integrated within the art show. This program encourages students to enter his/her original art that is publicly displayed in the art show the entire weekend. On Sunday at 3pm, there is $250 Youth Art Awards presented at the show as young artists are exposed to the rules and entrepreneurship of doing art shows for a living. Each youth art winner also receives the same, two-foot long colorful gorgeous ribbon that the professional artists receive. We are looking for a sponsor for this area.
There is free admission; $5 parking supports Institute for the Arts & Education and Boy Scouts of America – local troop in Naples.
