Orlando residents invited to Winter Park to celebrate the talent of local artists

September 26, 2017 by  

The spotlight is on Florida’s most talented as the 44th annual Autumn Art Festival showcases the best in the state this fall.

The Autumn Art Festival has the distinction of being the only juried fine art festival that restricts entry to resident artists. The event helps to highlight the amazing talent found in the Sunshine State, with a sidewalk show and many live performances. The entire family is welcome for this celebration of artistic talent.

Over $20,000 in prizes is up for grabs to the 180 chosen artists selected from the pool of applicants the committee receives each year. In addition, artists are asked to send their ideas and creations for the annual poster used to advertise the event. The entries are needed by mid-June each year, so there is plenty of time to get creative and begin poster printing for the 2018 contest.

The festival will take place at 251 S.Park Avenue in Winter Park on October 14 and 15 from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM. Admission is free. Local businesses can help to support the event through sponsorship. More information is available by emailing astricker@winterpark.org.

Artists interested in the poster contest or that would like to have their work displayed at the event next year can bookmark the Chamber’s event page or connect with them on social media for updates.
