For nearly half a century in Beverly Hills, springtime is synonymous with the Beverly Hills Art Show. This year’s iteration presented by the city’s Community Services Department takes place on May 15 and 16. The bi-annual event will feature live Master Classes and an art exhibit area featuring local artists in the Gardens of Greystone Mansion & Gardens. Reservations are required and can be made at www.beverlyhills.org/bhrec under the special events tab.
Eight highly skilled artists will lead intimate Master Class workshops in watercolor, drawing, mixed media, architectural and landscape photography, ceramics and jewelry making. Space is limited, so early registration is encouraged. Artists will have artwork on display for purchase as well.
“We are excited to showcase a few amazing Art Show artists in Master Class workshops,” said Brooke Putich, Art Show Coordinator and Arts & Culture Recreation Supervisor for the City of Beverly Hills. “The public will also have a chance to wander through various booths featuring art from local artists.”
In addition, beginning Monday, May 10, Beverly Hills Art Show Online will feature interviews with artists, painting instruction and more. The online gallery will give people an opportunity to view artwork from over 200 artists from around the country. The gallery will feature artwork in painting, sculpture, watercolor, photography, mixed media, ceramics, glass, jewelry, drawing and printmaking. Artists will have artwork for purchase.
