Join us for Hot Works™Asheville Fine Art Show™at US Cellular Center (formerly Civic Center), May 20 & 21, 2017. Up to 150 juried fine art and fine crafts from around the nation will be selling their original and personally handmade art in all forms of discipline. Paintings, sculpture, clay, glass, wood, jewelry, photography, fiber and more will be for sale to the public. There is something for everyone, in all price ranges.
Hot Works was established in 2003 and since has gained a national standing reputation for producing four of the top 100 art shows in the nation including downtown Boca Raton, FL; Estero, FL (between Naples and Fort Myers) and its flagship show, the Orchard Lake Fine Art Show® in West Bloomfield, Michigan. This is the same quality of art that we will be bringing to Asheville.
Institute for the Arts & Education is the 501(c3) non-profit arm which focuses on visual arts, diversity, community enrichment and fostering art education among youth. As part of our commitment to bring art education into the community, a Youth Art Competition for grades K-8 or ages 5-13 encourages students to enter his/her original and personally handmade art to be publicly displayed at the art show the entire weekend.
Students from Asheville and the surrounding communities are allotted an opportunity to step out into the professional art world, as all entries will be on display at one of the top-rated and most respected art shows in the nation. There is $250 in youth art awards which criteria will be judged on originality and technique/execution of work. Each winner will also receive a beautiful, two-foot long ribbon – which is the same size gorgeous ribbon that the professional winning artists receive.
Patty Narozny, Producer and Executive Director of Hot Works™ and President of Institute for the Arts & Education™, understands the importance of motivating and inspiring the upcoming generation of artists from all socio-economic backgrounds communities where Hot Works shows take place. Pioneering this movement, Narozny and her team at IA&E continue to give back to the art world by kindling the creative sparks of our young artists and exposing them to the entrepreneurship of creating art for a living.
