South Florida’s popular Las Olas Art Fair concluded after its second day of festivities Sunday, offering artwork from more than 150 artists.
The two-day event had kicked off Saturday in Fort Lauderdale. Throngs of people were there to check out artwork that ranged from photography to paintings to metal works to whimsy that brought smiles.
"I love all these details,” said art lover Sonia Weissbluth, as she looked at figures that seemed to have drinks in hand. “It seems like all of them have a glass of wine or a martini.”
One artist, Jason Pavalonis, said of photographers: “You're just always looking. Everywhere we go, we're kind of looking at angles and light. It's all about the light.”
The event, in its 25th year, had some artists attending for the first time and some who keep coming back. The exposure is exactly what every artist hoped for.
Kat Hogan, another artist, called it a “destination area.”
“We get people from all over the country which we love,” she said. “And that works well for what we do."
