Riverwalk Sunday Arts (which is walking distance from the above-mentioned indoor fair at Revolution) will also take place in downtown Fort Lauderdale. The event, now held the fourth Sunday afternoon of each month along the New River and at Esplanade Park, will feature local artists, crafters and musicians from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Feb. 24. For more info, visit Riverwalk Sunday Arts Facebook page.
Lake Worth Street Painting Festival: Day Two is the best day to see the show (assuming it doesn't rain between now and then) because some artists take all weekend to complete their chalked masterpieces.
Here's a link to the site Lake Worth Street Painting Festival, which will continue 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Sunday, and another link to a whole bunch of pics I took on day two of last year's fest.
Sunday Afternoon Tea with Artist Marta Estrems, 2 to 5 p.m. Sunday at Arch Gallery in Miami. There will be "casual conversations about Marta's artwork, the art world, life in Miami or whatever topic tickles your fancy," notes curator Daniela Montana. Estrems' show Containment: The Tao of Aesthetics is currently on exhibit at the gallery. More details can be found on the Facebook event page.
