The Sarasota Masters will be held February 5 & 6, 2011 along Palm Avenue in Historic Downtown Sarasota. The Masters promises to be Sarasota’s Premier Art Festival. A majority of participating artists have never displayed their artwork in Sarasota. The festival will feature 100 of the nations finest artists—both national and local—all presenting one-of-a-kind pieces in categories including oil, acrylic and watercolor paintings, sculpture, ceramics, fine jewelry, blown glass and more. Through the years, Sarasota’s Palm Avenue and the surrounding downtown area have become the hub of Sarasota art exhibits, shows, displays and gatherings. It is a delightful blend of historic Sarasota, fabulous shopping and exciting cultural events. A perfect spot for this premier art event; participants can also choose from gourmet food items from local restaurants, have the opportunity to meet each artist and enjoy live entertainment.

Support from this event is provided by The Downtown Sarasota Alliance. The DSA has become a unified voice to promote and enrich Historic Downtown Sarasota, our bay-front community.
