The country’s leading artists including top local talent will gather on Hilton Head Island with their finest work on May 28 - 29, 2011 for the 3rd Annual Hilton Head Island Art Festival at Shelter Cove Harbour. Admission is free and open to the public.

Bold and vibrant paintings, contemporary and whimsical art, life-size sculptures, photography, ceramics, and jewelry are among the many works of art that will be featured during this two-day art extravaganza. All artists will be on site for the duration of the show, available to discuss their art and inspiration.

“The art show is a great way to explore the work of many different artists in one setting,” says festival promoter Howard Alan. “You have a myriad of mediums and talent to choose from and best of all, the opportunity to meet and connect with the artists before making a purchase, which makes the investment much more meaningful and personal.”

The artists are juried by an independent panel of expert judges and hand-selected from hundreds of applicants based on quality and diversity. The 150 artists chosen to participate in the show will line the area with their professional display booths, transforming this popular waterfront shopping and dining destination into a high end outdoor art gallery attracting locals and tourists alike. The event appeals to people of all ages including families, art enthusiasts and serious art buyers hoping to enhance their collections. Prices range from $25 hand-designed earrings to $30,000 metal sculptures.

“The Hilton Head Island Art Festival at Shelter Cove Harbour is a world class art fair with a first rate exhibit much like those you’d expect at an art gallery or a museum but outdoors and family friendly,” says Howard Alan. “Our event provides HIlton Head Island with a hometown show that can compete with some of the better art fairs in the USA.”
