Ranked #24 on Sunshine Artist magazine’s 2018 100 Best Classic & Contemporary Art Shows, the Naples National Art Show is held in scenic Cambier Park and along 8th Street South in downtown Naples, Florida. Because of this national ranking and the beautiful weather in southwest Florida during this time of year, the Naples National draws some of the finest artists in the country. This is a juried art show with artists applying in eighteen categories including painting, jewelry, watercolor, ceramics, metal, sculpture, and wood.
The local community counts Naples National among its premiere, must-see events thanks to the high quality of the art, the engaging personalities of the artists, and the festive atmosphere. More than 20,000 residents and visitors flock to this outdoor weekend art show to enjoy the art, live performances, and our world-class restaurants in downtown Naples. Show attendees take full advantage of the opportunity to meet artists from across the country and to learn about their inspiration and techniques.
This show raises funds for educational art programming for the Naples Art Association. There is a suggested $5 donation at the gate.
