Included and showcased for sale is art in all discipline including paintings, sculpture, clay, glass, wood, fiber, jewelry, photography, and more. The Boca Raton Fine Art Show™ is sponsored by Hot Works, LLC, a professionally produced fine art fair by a show director with a national standing and reputation.
The Budding Artist competition is provided with prime space within the show to display all of the youth art entries. There is $250 in cash awards provided to four winners, along with a beautiful, colorful two-foot-long ribbon. Criteria for judging the youth art is on technique/execution and originality, which is similar to the criteria for the judging of the professional artist awards. As art programs are being dramatically cut and eliminated in schools nationwide, the need for such initiatives is made even more relevant.
