    South Ocean Boulevard on Lake Worth Beach will be transformed into a world class outdoor art gallery and craft market when Lake Worth Beach ArtFest debuts November 23 - 24, 2013. Festival patrons will be delighted by the eclectic displays of original works of art including bold and vibrant paintings, contemporary and whimsical life-size sculptures, photography, handcrafted jewelry and a separate craft market with unique handmade items. A craft beer and wine garden, a kid's activity zone, live music and a free art giveaway further enhances the festival experience at this oceanfront venue. Admission to the art show is free and open to the public.

    Festival promoter Howard Alan Events produces many award-winning juried art fairs throughout the country including the Las Olas Art Fairs, the Downtown Delray Beach Festival of the Arts, ArtFest by the Sea and many others. The artists are juried by an independent panel of expert judges and are hand-selected from hundreds of applicants based on quality and diversity in order to ensure a wide array of original artwork.

    "We are thrilled to provide Lake Worth with a first class art show," says Howard Alan, founder of Howard Alan Events. "This area is evolving, defining itself as a unique arts destination and I believe our event will be a perfect complement to these efforts."

    All of the proceeds generated by the City of Lake Worth during the festival will go directly to the beach fund and will be used in the maintenance of the Lake Worth Casino Building and Beach Complex.

    This two-day event will showcase the finest work of more than 100 leading artists in the country and will appeal to people of all ages including families, art enthusiasts and serious collectors looking for new and emerging talent. The artists will line South Ocean Boulevard along the beach with their gallery style booths and will be on site for the duration of the show, available to discuss their art, techniques and inspiration.

    An Art Giveaway will provide festival patrons an opportunity to win a bas relief fresco by award-winning artist Mauro Pozzobonelli. The wall sculpture will be on display at his booth throughout the festival where registration will also take place. The winning ticket will be drawn at 4:00 p.m. on Sunday. No purchase is necessary to participate in this giveaway. Mauro Pozzobonelli has been a sculptor for over 40 years. In that time he has won numerous awards, created over 3,000 individual portraits, inspiring monuments, completed numerous private commissions, as well as an impressive collection of bas-relief fresco artwork. Mauro has perfected a signature technique he developed from a life spent in sculpting. His passion for life and art are evident in each creation. His work continues to evolve as he is strives to perfect and hone his craft. For more information and images of his work go to www.pozzobonelli.com.

"We provide an ideal setting in which to explore the work of many different artists in one location," remarks Howard Alan. "You have the opportunity to meet and connect with the artist before making a purchase, which makes the investment much more meaningful and personal."
