The Sarasota Fall Fine Art Festival, hosted by the Sarasota Downtown Merchants Association, transforms Gulf Stream Avenue into an outdoor gallery of original, handmade works by artisans from across Florida and throughout the United States.  Together their works create a tapestry of art woven from stunning creations in painting, sculpting, jewelry, photography, glass, ceramics, fiber and wearable art, mixed-media, woodworking and much more.  All created in a diversity of styles and materials, each body of work unique. If you do not find what you seek, consider commissioning a unique, one-of-a-kind piece of art made specifically for you!

A whimsical video taken at a previous Sarasota art show.  Waiting out the rain and waiting for the patrons.  It all turned out well, especially with the help of my roadie and husband, Phil Leber. Enjoy,  Laurel
