Art Fest Naples returns to Fleischmann Park on Friday and Saturday, January 16 and 17, 2021, from 10 AM – 5 PM. Celebrating 24 years, Art Fest Naples is a juried show that offers Southwest Florida residents and visitors an opportunity to browse and purchase fine art that includes paintings in oil and acrylic, watercolors, drawings in graphite and pastels, art photography, blown glass, turned wood pieces, sculptures, metal works, ceramics and pottery, fiber art, handcrafted fine art jewelry and a variety of 2D and 3D mixed media pieces.  

“Art Fest Naples draws 140 of the best fine art and fine craft artists from around the country and is a mustdo for residents and visitors of Southwest Florida,” said Taire Malloy, show director. “Art Fest Naples has been consistently rated as one of the top shows in Florida and is ranked 10th in Best Fine Art & Design Shows in America in Sunshine Artist Magazine’s 2020 list.” 

In addition to the beautiful park setting, Art Fest Naples is unique in Florida and the country because a portion of the proceeds benefit a 501(c) (3) organization, St. Vincent de Paul Naples’ Meals on Wheels Program. The program serves the homebound by providing 150 meals daily. St. Vincent de Paul’s other programs include the Family Assistance Center and Choice Food Pantry. For more information, visit www.svdpnaples.org. 

“We are grateful to be a beneficiary of Art Fest and we greatly appreciate the community’s support,” said Diane Van Parys, Art Fest volunteer coordinator and St. Vincent de Paul Naples volunteer. “The funds raised will help the Meals on Wheels program serve Collier County’s homebound residents.” For Art Fest volunteer information, email artfestsvdp2021@gmail.com.
