Estero Fine Art Fair
Where: Miromar Outlets, Ben Hill Griffin at Corkscrew roads
When: 10 a.m. to 5 p.m today and Sunday
Art lovers, connoisseurs and members of the community will be in for an artful weekend at the Estero Fine Art Fair today and Sunday.
The second fair of the year includes more than 80 artists, and is conveniently nestled in next to Miromar Outlets from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day. With art in a variety of media, and vendors from around the area, those planning on attending can expect to leave with a deeper appreciation of the arts, asserted show director Patty Norozny.
“The best of the best will be out there in all forms of media,” Norozny said.
Juried by Ann Kuffler, director and owner of Arianna Gallery in Royal Oak, Mich., and Joseph T. Marks, curator of collections and exhibitions at the University of Michigan-Dearborn, the show offers people a chance to view paintings, clay work, glass, sculpture, jewelry and wood fiber.
“If someone isn’t interested in art, they should still come,” Norozny said. “They can come, take a walk and they will see some of the best art (in the area).”
“We encourage people who come out to the show to meet the artists in attendance,” Norozny said. “This is an opportunity to ask them questions about how they created their art, what inspires them. They can even ask how they put a value on their art.”
Art demonstrations and disabled artists from Lee Memorial will also be at the art fair, giving those who attend the opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of the artistic world.
“Art is a very important aspect in everyone’s life,” Norozny said. “Without it, where would we be?”
