The Beverly Hills Art Show – A Call to Artists

June 30, 2009

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., June 30 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ –

WHAT: 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.

WHEN: The deadline for artists to apply is July 20th (application must be postmarked by then). The show will be held Saturday, October 17th and 18th.

WHERE: City of Beverly Hills / 501 Doheny Road / Beverly Hills, CA 90210

DETAILS: To receive an application, call us or log on to our website at http://www.beverlyhills.org/affaireinthegardens

The show 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 occasional celebrity, ranging from former President Clinton to Michael Jackson. The site is an immaculately groomed, four-block-long linear park in the center of Beverly Hills.

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. Only 10 percent of work at the event may be in the class 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.
