Naples Invitational Art Fest Announces 2013 Judges


Annual event supports autism programs

Fort Myers, FL, December 23, 2012 --(PR.com)-- Eden Autism Services has announced the judges for the 16th annual Naples Invitational Art Fest, to be held January 26-27 2013 at Fleischmann Park, 1600 Fleischmann Blvd., Naples. Judges include Southwest Florida jewelry designer Mark Loren and visual artist Arturo Correa.

Loren has been transforming his ideas into heirlooms and his fascinations into fashion for more than 25 years. Along with his team of expert artisans Mark has won scores of National Design Awards and has gained celebrity-like status with both industry critics and jewelry collectors. Loren has jewelry galleries at the Mercato in Naples and on McGregor Boulevard in Fort Myers.

Correa was born in Valencia, Venezuela. He moved to the United States in 1989 and began his career as a visual artist. Correa graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Central Florida at Orlando and earned a Master of Arts degree with a major in Painting at New York University. Correa has held over 40 individual and collective exhibitions. His works have been featured in solo exhibitions held at museums, galleries and other institutions in the United States and in Venezuela.

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.

“Fine artists from across the U.S., Canada and abroad travel to Naples to participate in our show,” says Taire Malloy, Eden Florida Director of Development. “We are thrilled to have such judges for this year’s Art Fest.”
