The interactive, open air event runs from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day.

This free "en plein air" festival annually draws an estimated 20,000 attendees, many attracted by the unique event requirement that artists either demonstrate their creative methods or illustrate works in process.

Special prizes are awarded to the artists who most effectively engage and educate the public.

To be chosen to participate in ArtWorks, artists must apply and submit photographs of their work, which must meet juried standards for quality.

Artists compete for $15,000 in prize money, plus the popular patron purchase awards.

This year's Festival judges are Bill Griffith, a ceramic artist and program director for the Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts in Gatlinburg, Tenn., and Linda Schaner, president of Mill Pond Press in Venice, Fl., one of the world's leading art publishers.

An ArtWorks highlight each year is selection of an official festival poster, used to promote the event and also sold as an artistic keepsake, suitable for framing. This year's poster, a charcoal drawing by Melbourne artist Alex Stankiewicz, features the historic Roesch House (circa 1892), located on Highland Avenue. Artwork from past posters also has been reproduced on notecards, available for purchase at the event and in several downtown locations.

ArtWorks is always family oriented, and children's art activities are coordinated by the Foosaner Museum of Art.

Another Festival feature is the exhibit of artwork by students from area high schools and Brevard Community College.

A committee of community volunteers works for months to coordinate the ArtWorks Festival. Additional volunteers are needed throughout the event. The committee also is enlisting event sponsors, and patrons, who commit funds to buy artwork during the Festival. The potential to sell their work helps bring quality artists back each year.

To volunteer, donate or obtain additional information, call the Eau Gallie Arts District office at (321) 574-2737, email info@artworksofeaugallie.org or visit the ArtWorks website at artworksofeaugallie.org.
