The 6th Annual Boca Raton Fine Art Show™ on January 24 & 25, 2015 is held in a premium location in the heart of downtown Boca Raton on Federal Highway at Palmetto Park Road. The location has an effect on the type of patrons it draws, who trend toward affluence with “money to spend”. In its third year, this art fair was voted #68 in the country by Art Fair Sourcebook.
As part of the Hot Works™ family of events, the Boca Raton Fine Art Show™ has earned a reputation for quality and profitability in a relatively short time, having just celebrated its 5th Anniversary earlier this year. Patty Narozny is a wonderful promoter who cares about the artists. Strong crowds and sales are reasons most artists will return. In 2014, average reported sales were $4,709.91, which included a painter who zeroed out. Great selection of artists with high quality work. All work is original and personally handmade by the artist in the show. Hot Works events are juried by art professionals who each have more than 30 years of art education and art fair experience. Supreme advertising and promotional campaign on broadcast TV, radio, print, social media, banners, posters, post cards, and more.
“Nobody cares more about the quality of her shows and the honesty and integrity of her artists than Patty Narozny.”
Les Slesnick, Retired Photographer, Orlando, FL
“Thanks so much for all that you do to put on a great show. I especially appreciate your personal attention. You are among the finest show promoters in the business; you always consider artists’ needs first and that is rare.”
John Wayne Jackson, Sculpture, Black Mountain, NC
“Park understands the serious effort and dedication required to produce a successful art show. Moreover, she had very kind words for a person whom she sees as a leader in that regard. The show promoter who is hands down the most concerned about the well-being of her artists and consistently puts on a great show is….Patty Narozny (of) Hot Works.”
Herion Park, Fiber, Sarasota, FL, June 2014 – Sunshine Artist Magazine
“We very much enjoy working with you and participating in your events. Just let us know if there is anything we can do to help grow your business, so that we can do more shows with you. You are a breath of fresh air in an industry that typically see no problem taking advantage of artists for their own financial gratification – whether it’s other private promoters or “non-profit” groups that use artists to “fundraise” for their own purposes.”
Lee Wilson, Painting, Nashville, TN
Boca Raton, FL is centrally located along South Florida’s east coast, equidistant from West Palm Beach to the north and Fort Lauderdale to the south. The City of Boca Raton provides a unique blend of urban and suburban lifestyles. The 24th most populous city in Florida, Boca Raton covers over 29 square miles and enjoys five miles of oceanfront. The Boca Raton Fine Art Show™ is held outdoors in the heart of the city, Downtown Boca, on north Federal Highway, between Palmetto Park Road and N.E. 2nd Street, within Sanborn Square Park. The location has an effect on the type of patrons it draws, who trend toward affluence with “money to spend”. In its third year, this art fair was voted #68 in the country by Art Fair Sourcebook™, one of the nation’s leading art festival periodicals.
The City of Boca Raton has become a regional business leader attracting cutting edge businesses and corporate headquarters over the last several decades benefiting from a stable business environment. However, this is not the time to simply rest on one’s laurels. Increased competition and global economic conditions require a pro-active approach to future economic development. Attracting and retaining successful businesses means that Boca Raton will continue to have the high quality of life that makes it the premier community in South Florida. In the next year, more than 1,000 residences will be added to Downtown Boca by 2015.

Youth Art Competition
As part of our commitment to include art education in the Boca Raton Fine Art Show™ and the southeast Florida community as a whole, a youth art competition for grades 6-12 or ages 9-19 is integrated into the art fair. Sponsored by Hot Works, LLC and the Institute for the Arts & Education, Inc., a 501c3 non-profit organization, young artists are invited to apply with their original and personally handmade art. The competition gives budding, young artists a golden opportunity to begin learning the rules of being part of a professional art show and exhibition. This youth art competition is provided with prime space within the show to display all of the youth art entries, and $250 in cash awards is provided for the young winners.
As art programs are being dramatically cut and eliminated in schools nationwide, the need for such initiatives is made even more relevant. Students are encouraged to speak with the professional artists in the show, and to ask them questions about participating in art shows as a career. They are asked not to interrupt an artist if he/she is busy with a patron in the booth. The art fair provides these students with an unmatched learning experience, and exposes family to art work that they would not have otherwise seen. Criteria for judging the youth art are based on technique/execution and originality.
We are committed to your success. Please feel free to call with any questions or concerns at any time. We are artist-focused and seek to provide a venue that enhances your work and simplifies your participation. At Hot Works™, your success is our success!
