The Las Olas Art Fair kicks off the season with the very first art show of 2011. This South Florida tradition, regarded as one of the top events in America, has attracted locals and tourists alike for the past 23 years because of the wide variety of fine art on display and for sale. Only the top artists in the nation are selected to participate in this highly anticipated event. The artistic media represented include paintings, sculptures, photography, glass, wood, jewelry, collage, and ceramics with prices ranging from $25 hand-designed earrings to $20,000 metal sculptures. Admission is free and open to the public.

The new official Las Olas Art Fair poster will be available for sale during the festival. This year’s poster artist, award-winning painter and mixed media artist, Maria Reyes-Jones has expertly captured the essence of Las Olas with its colorful shops and vibrant atmosphere. Her unique style and masterful composition make this another collectible poster. Reyes-Jones will be on site for the duration of the festival. Her work can be seen in private and corporate collections, galleries and at fine art shows around the country.

The Las Olas Art Fair makes the arts accessible to a broad audience, appealing to people of all ages as a free and fun weekend activity, as well as serious art buyers looking to add to their collections. “This is a great way to start the year,” says festival promoter Howard Alan. “Festival goers are able to stroll among the finest art in the country in one of the most beautiful settings in Fort Lauderdale and actually interact with the artists.”

The artists, juried by an independent panel of expert judges and hand-selected from hundreds of applicants based on quality and diversity, will be on-site during the two-day event available to discuss their art and inspiration. All of their artwork is original and handmade in America.

Part II of this high caliber annual event returns the first weekend in March as part of an exciting Howard Alan Events Spring line up.
