Bonita & Estero Magazine - - CON­TENTS -

Me­an­der your way through the Gulf Coast Town Cen­ter dur­ing the 21st Bian­nual Es­tero Fine Art Show. The ju­ried event takes place on Jan. 6 and 7. Spon­sored by HotWorks.org and the non­profit In­sti­tute for the Arts & Ed­u­ca­tion, the show fea­tures paint­ings, sculp­tures and other works by fine art and fine craft artists. It’s con­sid­ered one of the top 100 art shows in Amer­ica.

An on­go­ing project, the Hot Works team works year-round to se­cure an as­sem­blage of ex­tremely high-qual­ity orig­i­nal pieces by pro­fes­sion­als that are on dis­play and for sale.

“We do ex­ten­sive re­search to guar­an­tee that all art­work is 100 per­cent orig­i­nal and cre­ated by the artists present at the show,” says Patty Narozny, pro­ducer and ex­ec­u­tive director of Hot Works. “In this en­vi­ron­ment, po­ten­tial art buy­ers and guests have the in­valu­able op­por­tu­nity to build a rap­port with each artist and gleam a bit of clar­ity re­gard­ing his or her in­spi­ra­tions and meth­ods.”

Art brings an ex­cit­ing, new look into your home or of­fice, but it also brings a piece of the artist that will re­main for years to come. In an ef­fort to en­cour­age art lovers to be­come art col­lec­tors, or­ga­niz­ers have se­lected works in all cat­e­gories and at all price ranges. “Since the be­gin­ning of civ­i­liza­tion, art is still your big­gest and best in­vest­ment,” Narozny points out.

An event for the whole fam­ily, the show fea­tures a Youth Art Com­pe­ti­tion, spon­sored by the In­sti­tute for the Arts & Ed­u­ca­tion, that’s open to grades K-5 (ages 5-13). The goal is to en­cour­age the up­com­ing gen­er­a­tion to en­ter their orig­i­nal art, which will be dis­played and judged by a pro­fes­sional. To fur­ther sweeten the pot, there will be awards of $250 and an of­fi­cial pre­sen­ta­tion on Sun­day, Jan. 7, at 3 p.m.

The 21st Bian­nual Es­tero Fine Art Show takes place at the Gulf Coast Town Cen­ter on Satur­day, Jan. 6, 10 a.m.-7 p.m. and Sun­day, Jan. 7, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. hotworks.org
