On Oct. 17-18, the city of Beverly Hills Community Services Department will hold the fall Beverly Hills Art Show, a biannual event now in its 47th year, virtually by showcasing over 200 artists from around the country on beverlyhills.org/artshow. Attendees will find artwork in painting, sculpture, watercolor, photography, mixed media, ceramics, glass, jewelry, drawing and printmaking. Artists will have artwork for purchase.
In addition, the virtual show will lead 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 – with each other and with art experts – during Art Show weekend. Representational and abstract painters, a master ceramicist, a glass artist, sculptors and photographers will all be discussing their artistic lives and taking questions from a live audience via Zoom.
In addition, six highly-skilled Beverly Hills Art Show artists o will lead free, live, interactive workshops in the gardens of Greystone Mansion & Gardens on Oct. 17-18 for small, socially-distanced groups. A master scratchboard artist, an exceptional watercolorist, two architectural and landscape photographers, an art professor specializing in drawing from nature and an inventive copper jeweler will show and teach the audience how to do it. Artists will also have their work on display for viewing and purchasing. Registration is required for in-person workshops at beverlyhills.org/bhrec. Space is limited, and 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,” said Kristin Buhagiar, manager for the Community Service Department’s Arts & Culture Division. “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.”
In addition to the upcoming virtual art show, the Community Services Department’s website, communitylifebh.org, offers a multitude of online programs, resources and inspiring content under Arts & Culture and Artists Resources, among other topics that will help keep people nourished physically, mentally and spiritually at home.
