"This unique online art show is a first for Naples. We’ve never seen anything like this done before, and to be set up within a week is a huge accomplishment"
NAPLES, Fla. (PRWEB) March 26, 2020
Naples Art’s commitment to the artists that juried into the 32nd Naples Downtown Art Show has led to their launching of Naples’ first virtual Art Show, now live, replacing the canceled 32nd Annual Naples Downtown Art Show originally scheduled for March 21st and 22nd, 2020. During a time when artists’ most significant shows have been canceled across the country due to COVID-19, Naples Art has dedicated much time and effort to move the entire show online for the world to see, in support of the artists.
The Naples Downtown Virtual Art Show site, designed by Dragon Horse Agrency, is now live and features works from over 250 extraordinary artists across 17 mediums. All artists will be showcased, rotating each hour on the Downtown Art Show web page, which can also be accessed by visiting NaplesArt.org. The virtual art show will be accessible 24 hours a day and will continue for up to three weeks based upon audience activity. Featured mediums include Ceramics, Digital Art, Fiber/Leather, Furniture, Glass, Metal, Photography, Sculpture, Jewelry and more. Patrons will be able to purchase art by using the links to individual artists’ websites.
“This unique online art show is a first for Naples. We’ve never seen anything like this done before, and to be set up within a week is a huge accomplishment,” enthuses Naples Art CEO/Executive Director Aimee Schlehr, adding, “We value all of our artists and their commitment to Naples Art and understand what an uncertain time this is. We are thrilled to be able to create something this extraordinary, doing everything we can to keep their business going, and hope our virtual patrons enjoy the show.”
