The bi-annual Beverly Hills Art Show attracted an estimated 30,000 arts lovers on May 21-22 to Beverly Gardens Park, where 150 artists exhibited their work along three blocks of Santa Monica Boulevard.
As one of the largest and most prestigious art shows in Southern California, the Beverly Hills Art Show featured diverse artists working in mediums including sculpture, glass, jewelry, photography, painting and ceramics. While many beloved artists annually appear at each show, the spring edition featured 39 first-time artists.
“We are thrilled to be able to showcase so many talented artists in Beverly Hills each year,” said Jenny Rogers, director of Beverly Hills Community Services. “As the world emerges out COVID, we are reminded how important it is to provide the creative community such an important large-scale event on behalf of the creative artists who are selected and the residents of Beverly Hills.”
At each Beverly Hills Art Show, special awards and recognitions are given to participating artists. A special panel is tasked with the selection. This year’s award recipients are Matt Budish, Best of Show; Andrea Haffner, the Gil Borgos Award for Originality; Fred Stodder, Best Art Display; and Jennifer Del Barrio, Best New Artist.
First-place winners included Stodder for ceramics, Leeza Taylor for digital art, Brit Hansen for drawings and printmaking, Fay Miller and Ivan Grajalez for glass, and Sean Hill for jewelry. Also honored were Anna Choi, mixed media-two dimensional; David Greenhalgh, mixed media-three dimensional; Kristin Brin, painting; Marshall Vanderhoof, photography; Matt Budish, sculpture; and Merissa Mann, watercolors.
The Beverly Hills Art Show is produced by the Beverly Hills Community Services Department. Artists are encouraged to apply in June for a juried spot in the upcoming 2022 Fall Beverly Hills Art Show, which will be held on Oct. 15-16.
