Organizer: The Estero shows are produced by Hot Works, LLC, which also runs the award-winning Orchard Lake Fine Art Show in Michigan. In order to achieve a high-quality fine art and craft show, the Hot Works team travels continuously around the U.S. and Canada visiting art shows and recruiting the very best Viewers and Browsers 06artists for Hot Works events.

Those artists who do apply for inclusion in the Estero festivals must submit three compelling images of their  work along with one showing their booth presentation. Then, a group of art professionals (that include gallery owners, directors and curators, and artists) reviews the application and images. “We judge based on originality, technique and execution, quality, and booth presentation,” observes show director Patty Norozny. Only the finest are admitted into the shows.

In order to encourage participating artists to bring their finest work to the shows, Viewers and Browsers 07a second round of judging occurs on site on the first day of the show. The results are announced on Sunday, with the best artists in each category receiving ribbons, purchase awards and cash prizes. By pre-qualifying each one of the artists who come to this event and recognizing the best with ribbons and awards, Hot Works seeks “to help the general public with making their artwork purchase decisions by [giving them the knowledge] that they are purchasing quality work.”

Dana Roes and Patty Narozny 02Director: Patty Narozny. In addition to 25 years of media and event experience, Patty has a corporate finance degree from Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan. Currently, Patty produces high-quality, juried fine art & craft events in not only in Florida, but Michigan and North Carolina. Narozny is the founder of Hot Works Fine Art & Craft Shows.
