This March 7 and 8, a stretch of A1A in Juno Beach will transform into quite possibly the most scenic art gallery in Florida. The twenty-seventh annual Art Fest by the Sea will once again take over the stretch of beach road from Donald Ross north to Marcinski, with more than 150 artists setting up tents for the outdoor gallery. Produced by Howard Alan Events and American Craft Endeavors, whose events include art shows throughout the state and country, each artist on exhibit has gone through a rigorous double-blind jury process by a panel of artists, ensuring that every work is of the highest quality.
West Palm Beach artist Ellen Negley will be on hand this weekend, showcasing her portfolio of bold and bright watercolors.
This year, artists working in 13 different mediums will be on display in the one-mile stretch of beach road, each of which will man their own booth, allowing possible buyers a chance to interact with mind and talent behind the piece.
Open Saturday and Sunday, March 7 and 8, from 10 a.m.-5 p.m., admission is free for this art festival. The entrance to the show is at Loggerhead Park (home to Loggerhead Marinelife Center), which means parking is at a premium. Have no fear, Art Fest by the Sea will be operating a free shuttle service from a subsidiary parking lot located at FPL at the intersection of Universe Blvd. and Ellison Wilson Road, making getting to and from the festival easy peasy.
