How can a fine artist go wrong?

The City of Beverly Hills is seeking artists for the Spring 2010 Affaire In The Gardens Art Show, in the following categories:

Painting, Sculpture, Photography, Drawing and Printmaking, Ceramics and Glass, Digital Art, and Mixed Media

The show has taken place for over thirty-six years along four blocks of historic Beverly Gardens Parkway, between Rodeo and Rexford Drives, in the center of Beverly Hills.  Artists from around the nation exhibit alongside local Los Angeles talent.  Approximately 40,000 visitors attend throughout the weekend, and Southern California art dealers regularly drop by to seek out new art and artists.  Celebrities are often spotted as well, strolling through the gardens and striking art bargains.

The City is especially seeking artists who take on the subject of air, whether it is the sky, our atmosphere, air pollution, etc.

This free, drop-in event includes an outdoor dining quarter, a wine garden, live jazz, classical and contemporary music, and many art demonstrations.  A number of Beverly Hills restaurants provide the food options.  However, the emphasis is on the finest art available in an outdoor fair setting.

Call or email for an artist application.
