Sanibel Masters Art Festival @ The Sanibel Community House!
Dates: Friday& Saturday, November 28 and 29, 2014.
Hours. 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
“The festival is held on the grounds of The Sanibel Community House on Periwinkle Drive, Sanibel’s main street. The Sanibel Community House has been an island fixture since 1927 and touts itself as The Gathering Place on Sanibel Island.
This festival has been a Sanibel Island Thanksgiving weekend tradition for 21 years. It showcases paintings in oil, acrylic and watercolor, drawings and pastels, 2D and 3D mixed media and collages, photography and digital art, woodworking, sculpture, ceramics, glass, handmade Tiffany Style Lamps, fiber art, and jewelry produced by 75 artists and artisans from around the country.
Because of the size of the show, visitors have the opportunity to interact with the artists, learn a little about their inspiration, find out how they made their artworks, and purchase fine works of art at reasonable prices directly from the artists (or commission a specific work of art if they do not find precisely what they want). In addition to fine art and crafts, the festival is renowned for its gourmet food booths and live entertainment.”
