Siesta Key Village welcomes back the nation’s leading artists and crafters when Siesta Fiesta returns April 30 - May 1, 2011. 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.
The artists will line Ocean Boulevard with their professional display booths while the crafters will display their unique and affordable crafts throughout Siesta Key Village for a sidewalk craft fair. All artists and crafters will be present for the duration of the show, available to discuss their work and inspiration. Ocean Boulevard will be closed to vehicular traffic starting at Ocean and Canal and running through to Beach Road.
The event appeals to people of all ages including serious art buyers looking to add to their collections. With a wide variety of art mediums on display and prices ranging from $25 hand-designed earrings to $30, 000 metal sculptures, there is something for everyone.
“This is a fantastic way to explore the work of many different artists in one setting,” says festival promoter Howard Alan. “You have the opportunity to meet and connect with the artist before making a purchase, which makes the investment much more meaningful and personal.”
The artists are juried by an independent panel of expert judges and hand-selected from hundreds of applicants based on quality and diversity.
