An explosion of color, an abundance of talent and a myriad of mediums will mark the return of Beaver Creek Village’s premier annual art festival this summer, transforming the heart of this popular resort destination into a gallery style outdoor art extravaganza. The 24th Annual Beaver Creek Art Festival slated for August 6 – 7, 2011, features the finest work of more than 200 of the nation’s leading artists and crafters including top talent from throughout the state of Colorado. Admission is free and open to the public.

Bold and vibrant paintings, contemporary and whimsical art, along with southwest themed and inspired creations, including life-size sculptures, photography and jewelry are among the many works of art that will be on display and for sale during this two-day nationally ranked art event. The festival is set-up around the magnificent Beaver Creek Resort located in the Vail Valley, just a few hours from Denver and Aspen.

The artists, juried by an independent panel of expert judges, are hand-selected from hundreds of applicants based on quality and diversity and required to be on site for the duration of the festival, available to discuss their art and inspiration. All of their artwork is original and handmade in America.

The 24th Annual Beaver Creek Art Festival makes the arts accessible to a broad audience. Prices range from $25 hand-designed earrings to $50,000 metal sculptures. The event appeals to people of all ages including families, art enthusiasts, as well as serious art buyers looking to add to their collections

“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 the opportunity to meet and connect with the artist before making a purchase, which makes the investment much more meaningful and personal.”

Howard Alan Events, the country's largest producer of award winning fine outdoor art festivals, returns to Colorado each year at the behest of clients. Introduced to these upscale street fairs in Florida, many asked for this successful festival promoter to come to Colorado with the same high-end quality art by the finest artists in the nation. Now, the Howard Alan Events festivals in Colorado are highly anticipated and include the Downtown Aspen Art Festival, the Downtown Frisco Art Festival, the Boulder Festival of the Arts on 29th Street, the Main Street to the Rockies Art Festival and this weekend’s 24th Annual Beaver Creek Art Festival.
