The Naples Art Association presents a community favorite event on Jan. 5-6, 2013 on Fifth Ave. South: the Downtown Naples New Year’s Art Fair. At this festival, audiences can walk right up to life-size sculptures, try on handmade clothing, view memories of places and things captured by camera or paintbrush, oogle jewelry that sparkles, select from an array of functional pottery and decorative ceramic art. More than 200 artists will have their original artwork for sale. The festival on Fifth Ave. Naples is open from 10 to 5 both Saturday and Sunday.

Saturday only, check out Art in the Park along Park Street for even more original art by Naples Art Association member artists, art demonstrations by Sharon Erbe and Rinny Ryan, plus art projects for the whole family! First Saturdays art projects will take place from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.inside The von Liebig Art Center. Instructor David Hammel will lead adults in glazing ceramic bowls to donate to the Empty Bowls fundraiser, helping to feed the hungry in Collier County through Harry Chapin Food Bank. Instructor Kim Walbert leads children of all ages to create make-and-take art projects.

To support the Naples Art Association’s ongoing, community-supporting arts programming, donations are accepted at the festivals, but admission to both events and participation in First Saturdays craft activities are absolutely free.

Special thanks go to sponsors: Costco, Russell’s Clambakes, Naples Daily News, WAVV 101.1, Happenings A&E Magazine, Lite 93.7, Florida Weekly and WGCU Public Media.
