The Beverly Hills artSHOW announces a call to artists to be part of its fun, festive, and prominent fair held on May 20 and 21, 2017 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. along four fabled garden blocks in the center of Beverly Hills. Artists are recruited nationally and encouraged to apply for a juried spot immediately. The application deadline is February 14, 2017; a late deadline for an additional fee is February 21. ArtFairSourceBook.com ranked BH artSHOW as a Top 25 event for sales of fine art in 2016 among 1000 art fairs around the nation. The BH artSHOW is listed on the Elite 25 Fine Art Fairs for 2017.
Local and regional patrons, along with hotel visitors from around the world, shop at the Beverly Hills artSHOW and the event draws nearly 40,000 visitors throughout the weekend. 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. Within this topic, visual art with a verbal component is also sought.
