The Beverly Hills Art Show – Affaire In The Gardens
Call To Artists
The City of Beverly Hills is seeking artists to show and sell work at the “Affaire in the Gardens” Art Show, held in Beverly Gardens Park in Beverly Hills. The show will be held Saturday, October 17th and 18th; it is 37 years old this fall and attracts up to forty-thousand art lovers at each show. The show is a famously fun meet-and-greet site as well as a place to sell art; area collectors and art dealers routinely attend this event along with the real people. The site is an immaculately groomed, four-block-long linear park in the center of Beverly Hills. The deadline for an artist to submit an application is July 20th. Artists’ work must be in one of the categories: Painting – Sculpture – Drawing – Traditional Printmaking – Photography – Ceramics – Glass – Mixed Media (hard & soft) – Digital Art There is a major emphasis in this show on original art, hand-crafted from raw or recycled/raw materials. This show is not an appropriate venue for artists planning to sell many reproductions; only 10 percent of work at the event may be in the category of reproductions. Exceptions are all fine art “original prints” such as engravings, photographs, etc., which should be numbered and signed, as should all reproductions in the sculpture category or other category where molds are a primary part of the art-making process. We thank artists for observing these fine art traditions.
