Call to Artists for “Artnado” – A New Art Show in Palm Beach County

Jack Busa is bringing a new-concept juried art show to our area. “Artnado” will take place at the South Florida Fairgrounds, featuring 2D and 3D creations on November 14th and 15th, 2015. This indoor show has a lot to offer to artists and art patrons alike. Using high-technology, patrons will be able to see participating artists’ work in situ as well as in their exhibition areas. Artists are highly encouraged to demonstrate their techniques to further inform the art loving public. Booth spaces are 10′ by 20′.  The Rickie Report applauds this trend, believing that better informed art lovers become more enthusiastic art patrons. We want to point out that there is no connection between the presenting organization, Artistic Synergy and Art Synergy (ARTWEEK at Art Palm Beach). Here are the details.




A Juried Art Show

Sponsored by

November 14 and 15, 2015

South Florida Fairgrounds Expo Center

West Palm Beach,   Florida



Jack Busa, of Artistic Synergy is sending out a Call to Artists for a unique juried exhibition taking place at the South Florida Fairgrounds. All artists are encouraged to apply. The Festival will feature 2D and 3D art, photography, jewelry or whatever combination the creative mind conjures. Jack explains, “‘Synergy’ is supplied with the incorporation and interaction of models, an embellishment room and ambiance music”.



Jack tells us, ‘We created ARTNADO realizing that no one can know or predict the complete buying habits of the attendees. Our juried process is designed to take into consideration the artists work from talent, inspiration and creativity and not to classify something as “not art” because it does not fit what “we” expect. If your work meets these criteria then there may be a market for it. Artists need to promote themselves or they will have a limited career. Our goal is to show your art in the most favorable way and to help you display and demonstrate your work to appeal to all potential buyers.”
