The Summit will host its premier annual juried art show in June this year; traditionally held in May, this popular high-end festival has been scheduled for June 11 - 12, 2011. The 4th Annual Louisville Festival of the Arts at the Summit will showcase the work of 150 of the finest artists in the country including top local talent from Louisville as well as feature live music and interactive art activities for children. Admission is free and open to the public.
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 retail and dining destination into a first class outdoor art gallery. Prices are set to suit all budgets and range from $25 hand-designed earrings to $20,000 metal sculptures. The artists, juried by an independent panel of expert judges and hand-selected from hundreds of applicants based on quality and diversity, will line The Summit with their gallery style display booths and will be present for the duration of the show.
“The festival presents art enthusiasts with 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,” comments Alan.
