26TH ART FEST NAPLES INVITATIONAL
January 21 @ 10:00 am - January 22 @ 4:00 pm
Art Fest Naples Invitational returns to Fleischmann Park on Saturday and Sunday, January 21 and 22, 2023 from 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. on Saturday, and 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. on Sunday. Celebrating 26 years, Art Fest Naples is a juried show that offers Southwest Florida residents and visitors an opportunity to browse and purchase fine art that includes paintings in oil and acrylic, watercolors, drawings in graphite and pastels, art photography, blown glass, turned wood pieces, sculptures, metal works, ceramics and pottery, fiber art, hand-crafted fine art jewelry and a variety of 2D and 3D mixed media pieces.
“Art Fest Naples draws some of the best fine art and fine craft artists from around the country and is a must do for residents and visitors of Southwest Florida,” said Taire Malloy, show director. “Art Fest was named one of Sunshine Artist magazine’s 200 Best of the past decade. The show ranked 57th of 200 of the best shows in the United States from 2010-2020 in the fine art and design category.”
In addition to the beautiful park setting, Art Fest Naples is unique in Florida and the country because a portion of the proceeds benefit a 501(c) (3) organization, St. Vincent de Paul Naples’ Meals on Wheels Program. The program serves nutritious food and a friendly visit to homebound seniors and disabled neighbors. More than 55,000 meals a year are provided by more than 175 volunteers that support this ministry. St. Vincent de Paul’s other programs include the Family Assistance Center and Choice Food Pantry. For more information visit www.svdpnaples.org.
“We are grateful to be a beneficiary of Art Fest and we greatly appreciate the community’s support,” said Diane Van Parys, Art Fest volunteer coordinator and St. Vincent de Paul Naples board member. “The funds raised will help the Meals on Wheels program serve Collier County’s homebound residents.” For Art Fest volunteer information email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Art Fest Naples Invitational at Fleischmann Park has a history of supporting fine arts and fine crafts for 25 years! By showcasing artists who exhibit their original hand-crafted work, the community as well as visitors from other states have an opportunity to meet these creative folks and learn about their processes. And purchase beautiful and meaningful works of art! Our other goal is to contribute a portion of net proceeds to a local Naples charity.
Since 1998, Art Fest Naples Invitational has ranked in the top one-hundred art shows with Sunshine Artist magazine and has remained a Naples favorite! As well as presenting top artists, Art Fest Naples 2023 is unique because it helps benefits local charities serving a range of needs within our community. Art Fest has helped: Children and adults with autism through Eden Autism Services and the Special Needs Children’s Fund; Children and adults through Additional Needs, Inc; and Homebound adults through St. Vincent de Paul’s Meals on Wheels program.
