Art lives on in Beverly Hills, even as day-to-day life remains impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. The fall Beverly Hills Art Show, in its 47th year, will take place in a virtual format on Oct. 17 and 18.

The City’s Community Services Department will showcase more than 200 artists from around the country on beverlyhills.org/artshow. Works will include painting, sculpture, watercolor, photography, mixed media, ceramics, glass, jewelry, drawing and printmaking. Artists will have artwork for purchase.

In addition, the virtual show will include live Zoom sessions both days featuring interviews and conversations with artists, painting instruction and more. Twelve Art Show artists will discuss their work, lives, and even a bit of art show history during Art Show Weekend. Representational and abstract painters, a master ceramicist, a glass artist, sculptors, and photographers will participate and take questions live via Zoom.

Six Beverly Hills Art Show artists will lead free, live, interactive workshops in the gardens of Greystone Mansion & Gardens on both Oct. 17 and 18 for small, socially distanced groups. A master scratchboard artist, a watercolorist, two architectural and landscape photographers, an art professor specializing in drawing from nature, and an inventive copper jeweler will show their work and provide lessons. Artists will also have their work on display for viewing and purchasing. Registration is required for in-person workshops and space is limited. Reserve by visiting beverlyhills.org/bhrec.  Participants at the Greystone workshops will be required to wear masks and observe social distancing.

“The beloved Beverly Hills Art Show is a community favorite that has drawn crowds of 40,000 over the two-day weekend, pre-COVID-19. The show typically takes place along four linear blocks of historic Beverly Gardens Park. We are eager to stay connected to our community and artists, and this is a perfect way to support our artists while giving our community members an exciting, engaging art show experience,” said Kristin Buhagiar, Manager for Community Service Department’s Arts & Culture Division.

In addition to the upcoming virtual art show, the Community Services Department’s website, CommunityLifeBH.org, offers an array of online programs, resources and content. For more information, call Community Service Department’s Arts & Culture Division at 310-285-6830.
