The city of Beverly Hills will hold the spring installment of is bi-annual Art Show on Saturday, May 21, and Sunday, May 22, from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. in Beverly Gardens Park, along three blocks of Santa Monica Boulevard between Canon Drive and Rexford Drive.
The Beverly Hills Art Show is a free event that brings 150 artists from Southern California, the Southwest and across the nation together to showcase artworks in 11 mediums including ceramics, digital media, drawing and printmaking, glass, jewelry, mixed-media, painting, photography, sculpture and watercolor. All participating artists will exhibit and sell their work, giving attendees an opportunity to acquire one-of-a-kind originals, limited editions and newly released pieces.
Several artists who placed first in last year’s Art Show will return in May, as well as 37 new artists and established and emerging artists. Returning is artist and California native Christen Austin, who received first place in painting in October 2020.
“It is important to provide imagery that represents the Black community in a way that encompasses positivity and relatability,” Austin said.
Also returning is Joe Polthakorn Vilaiwan, of Vilaiwan Fine Jewelry, who is a second-generation jeweler. In his native Thailand, he developed an instinct for identifying quality stones and metals. At the age of 14, Vilaiwan began designing avant-garde jewelry that has been featured in magazines, on runways and in films.
Another favorite of the Art Show is photographer Ira Meyer, whose work is collected worldwide and has been published in newspapers and magazines such as National Geographic, Outdoor Photographer and the Los Angeles Times, as well as on the cover of books, greeting cards and calendars.
Also new to the show is sculptor Danette Landry. Her art calls for a constant reconstruction and materialization of one’s self. This force is represented in her bronze totems.
In addition to art, guests can enjoy food and beverages from the food trucks Cousins Maine Lobster, Pie ‘n Burger, the Deli Doctor, Paradise Truck and Thai Mex Cocina. Parking is located directly across from the show.
