On October 17th & 18th, the Beverly Hills Art Show, Affaire In The Gardens, returns. 250 artists and their original art, from twenty-foot tall metal sculptures to hand-made ceramic perfume bottles, fill four historic garden blocks in BH, from Rodeo to Rexford Drive. In addition, this drop-in event always includes an outdoor dining quarter, a wine garden, live jazz, classical and contemporary music, many art demonstrations, and craft-making for children. A number of local area restaurants provide the cuisine.

The patrons at this FREE event include local Beverly “Hillites,” art collectors from all over Los Angeles and Southern California, some of the best-groomed dogs in the world, as well as the occasional celebrity; the latter always sends a quiet buzz through all four blocks of the show.

Live demonstrations feature artists showing off their abilities to represent water, a notoriously tough subject to paint. The art show talent pool pays tribute to water, an increasingly rare and precious substance even in the lush oasis of Beverly Hills.
