The Beverly Hills artSHOW is seeking artists for it's autumn show, which will be held on Saturday & Sunday, October 21 & 22, 2017.
As ever, the show takes places along leafy blocks of historic Beverly Gardens in the heart of Beverly Hills, from Rodeo Drive to Rexford Drive. For forty-five years, the show has been one of the most popular art events on the west side of the country, and it’s a fun, festive but somewhat serious fair!
We always seek fine artists working in a wide variety of categories, and addressing any number of subjects. Additionally, this fall, the show is seeking artists for a special feature (within the overall event) called “Ghostly”: art that addresses the ethereal, the departed, and all things past that seem to linger in the present…let us know if your work aligns with this subject matter.
