SARASOTA, FLORIDA – St. Armands Art Festival celebrates its 21st anniversary on October 10 – 11, 2009 as the streets of Sarasota’s St. Armands Circle are transformed into a first-class outdoor art gallery complete with 150 artists and $15 million in artwork available for sale. Admission is free and open to the public.

Produced by Howard Alan Events, the St. Armands Art Festival is ranked as one of the top outdoor art festivals in the country. The artists, juried by an independent panel of expert judges, are hand-selected from hundreds of applicants based on quality and diversity. All of their artwork is original and handmade in America.

Howard Alan Events, the show’s promoter, stipulates that all artists are required to be on-site for the entire duration of the show. Artists and their professional white-tented display booths will line St. Armands Circle, transforming the area into a first-class outdoor art gallery. The public can meet and talk with the artists personally, asking questions about their art and inspirations. The artistic media represented include paintings, sculptures, photos, glass, wood, jewelry, collage, and ceramics.

The 21ST Annual St. Armands Art Festival makes the arts accessible to a broad audience. Prices range from $25 hand-designed earrings to $20,000 metal sculptures. The event appeals to family and friends as a free and fun weekend activity, as well as serious art buyers looking to add to their collections. Howard Alan comments, “In spite of today’s economy people are still investing in art because art heals, art soothes; this is art that is handmade in America.”
