Event Summary

SARASOTA ART & HANDMADE HOME SHOW  | NOV 30, DEC 1•2 2018
(Formerly the Sarasota Craft Show)

Robarts Arena, 3000 Ringling Blvd, Sarasota, FL 34237

Application Deadline: July 15
Location: Air-conditioned Robarts Arena, just minutes from downtown Sarasota.

Now in its tenth year, this show will feature exceptional works in ceramics, decorative fiber, glass, jewelry, leather, metal, mixed-media, paper, wearable art, wood, painting, photography, and sculpture by more than 120 of the nation's top artists.

NEW THIS YEAR:
Art Walls Now Available
If you are a fine artist and you do not have your own display racks or walls, we will provide display racks to hang your work. The panels are 5' wide x 8' high.

A New Show Title
With the enormous influx to Sarasota of both retirees as well as a younger demographic, the show has been given a title change and new identity. As the only indoor quality art event on the west coast of Florida, attracting new buyers is our mission. By eliminating "craft" from the title, we will avoid any confusion about the content of the show.
 
Indoor air-conditioned booths, as well as outdoor booths, are available. This show had a long history as an American Craft Council show and was relaunched 9 years ago adding all categories of fine art. This event has become a Sarasota tradition attracting more than 5,000 paid admission visitors.

APPLICATION DEADLINE: JULY 15, 2018
