The Beverly Hills artSHOW announces a call to artists for its fun, festive, and prominent fair.
Local and regional patrons, along with hotel visitors from around the world, shop at the artSHOW. This past year’s spring show was rated 25th in fine art sales by the Art Fair Sourcebook’s ranking system of shows throughout the country!
Artists are recruited nationally for the event, and encouraged to apply now for a juried spot. Selected artists will exhibit along four fabled garden blocks in the center of Beverly Hills. The spring Beverly Hills artSHOW will be held May 20 and 21, 2017 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. The early deadline is February 14th, and the late deadline is February 21st.
The most recent Beverly Hills artSHOW, held on October 15 and 16, brought art lovers from the affluent west side of Los Angeles, along with visitors from all corners of the globe, who enjoyed the work of 250 artists in the categories of Painting, Sculpture, Drawing and Printmaking, Photography, Ceramics, Glass, and more.
For the May show, staff is also seeking artists for a special feature tentatively titled: Vexed yet Vital, which will highlight art addressing the topic of thriving in difficult times or circumstances, and the means that are used, whether via confrontation or escape! Within this topic, visual art with a verbal component is also sought.
