The first Annual Evansville Fine Arts Show, presented by HotWorks, a fine art and craft show production company, will feature more than 75 of the nation’s most promising artists. From Nov. 16 to Nov. 18, this original event will showcase sculptures, paintings, glass, clay, wood, jewelry, and photography at the The Centre, and will open with a ribbon cutting ceremony hosted by Mayor Lloyd Winnecke.
Artists will display their original, handmade work while answering questions about the pieces. Live art demonstrations let artists show the processes they go through to create their work.
Juried professionals will hand out several awards, including two $500 purchase award prizes and five $100 awards of excellence. All of the winning artists automatically will be invited to participate in next year’s event. “We hope to build this event to be one of the best in the Midwest,” says Patty Narozny, owner and executive director of HotWorks. “And we hope it will draw people from Louisville, Ky., St. Louis, Nashville, Indianapolis, and beyond.”
