Naples Invitational Art Fest Announces 2012 Sponsors; Annual Event Supports Autism Programs


Fort Myers, FL, December 07, 2011 --(PR.com)-- Eden Autism Services has announced sponsors for the 15th annual Naples Invitational Art Fest. Arthrex, First National Bank of the Gulf Coast and Home-Tech are partnering again with Eden Autism Services to present the juried art shows, to be held January 28-29 and March 17-18, 2012 at Fleischmann Park, 1600 Fleischmann Blvd., Naples.

“Some of the nation’s finest artists participate in the Art Fest, displaying and selling their wares ranging from oil, acrylic and water color paintings, blown glass, turned wood pieces, sculptures, jewelry to a variety of mixed media,” said Art Fest Director Jill Spanbauer. “This year the community has the opportunity to enjoy the show in both January and March.” Spanbauer has been the Art Fest director for 12 years.

Consistently ranked as one of America’s top art shows by industry magazine Sunshine Artists, the show is judged by prominent art collectors, gallery owners, educators and guest artists. The Naples Invitational Art Fest is unique in Florida and the country because the proceeds benefit a 501 (c) 3 organization, Eden Autism Services. Eden Autism Services' mission is to improve the lives of children and adults with autism and provide support to their families by providing a range of community based services to meet specific needs throughout the lifespan. These services include K-12 schools in Fort Myers and Naples, clinical services, consultations and community training, and adult residential, vocational training and employment services.

“The Art Fest is a major fundraiser for us each year and we greatly appreciate the business community’s support,” says Eden’s Executive Director of Florida Operations, Susan Suarez. “We’re able to raise needed funds to support developmental and educational programs for our students with autism.”

Sponsorships are still available. For more information about sponsorships for the 2012 Naples Invitational Art Fest contact Susan Suarez at 239-992-4680, ext. 5010 or Susan.suarez@edenautism.org or visit www.edenartfest.com
