One of the fascinating things about the Sarasota area is that every January and February, there is a ton of festivals, many having gone on for years. One of these is the 9th Annual Sarasota Masters Art Festival. If you love fine arts and crafts, you don’t want to miss going to this festival.
The Sarasota Masters Art Festival is scheduled for Feb. 3 and 4. You can attend either day starting at 10 a.m. and going until 5 p.m. As for the price of admission, you pay nothing. As you meander about, you’ll discover incredible things made by artists from all over the country. You’ll discover blown glass; watercolor, oil, and acrylic paintings; ceramics; fine jewelry; sculptures; and more. You’ll also get treated to live entertainment and, if you feel hungry, various food vendors sell an assortment of things.
While browsing or buying something from one of the displays, you’ll appreciate the beautiful view since this festival is right on Gulf Stream Avenue. Now, something to consider is that while you can attend this year’s festival as someone who wants to look or buy, you can always sign up to participate in next year’s festival to show off and sell your original work.
Incredible Artwork, Arts, and Crafts
For this upcoming event, the organizers have set aside booths for 72 artists. That means you’ll have all sorts of things to consider, whether you just enjoy looking at the masterpieces or want to take one or more with you for your home or office. Of course, if you know someone who is impossible to buy for, a piece of artwork is a perfect gift.
Because this is a masters level art festival, most buyers have middle to high incomes, but that doesn’t mean that you must spend money to attend. There’ll also be a large number of collectors of fine art, each scouring the festival for original, high-quality, and affordable fine arts and crafts. Again, that doesn’t mean there won’t be items for the average-income visitor. With so many pieces of artwork on display, along with crafts, there’s always a bargain for everyone.
