Boca Raton Fine Art Show

Event Summary
Hot Works’ 9th annual Boca Raton Fine Art Show January 27 & 28, 2018 is held outdoors in downtown Boca Raton. The location has an effect on the type of patrons it draws, who trend toward affluence. The show is limited to 150 artists, or less.

The Boca Raton Fine Art Show is voted top 100 art fairs in the nation – a testament to our efforts and successes. Show Producer Patty Narozny brings 30+ years of event and media experience, and has a national reputation for her integrity and for producing extremely high-quality art fairs. All work is original and personally handmade by the artist in the show. Hot Works shows are juried by art professionals with 120+ years’ combined art education and/or art fair experience.
“Hot Works is both organized and they really bring great quality buyers–this show is a must-attend.”

Our #1 goal at Hot Works is to make the Boca Raton Fine Art Show a pleasant & profitable experience for all of our stakeholders in this endeavor – the artists, patrons, residents, sponsors, local merchants and the City – all the while aiming to be an enjoyable family-friendly event and destination for which we can all take great pride.

Hot Works. Your Art. Our Passion.


Born and raised in the beautiful green mountains of Vermont, Karen holds a deep-seeded connection to the ever-changing landscape of the mountains. Her photographic subjects reflect her reverence for the extraordinary beauty and fragility of the natural world. Karen's career in photography began while working with nonverbal, autistic and learning disabled children on improving their communication skills. With a master’s degree in speech-language pathology, Karen developed computer based communication systems using photographs that she took with her clients of objects and people in their lives. Photography helped these special-needs individuals see the world in different ways and facilitated their creativity as well as their communication skills. For several years, Karen juggled careers as both a speech-language pathologist and a professional photographer, but when she became a mother Karen realized that she could not continue careers in both fields. She took a “break” from her work as a speech-language pathologist, and ultimately, never went back. For the past several years, Karen has explored the fine art of still life photography, as well as abstract images using smoke with objects she hand-created. Her still life images containing botanicals, sea shells, butterflies, fossils and geodes, as well as her totally unique images of smoke have earned her national and international accolades, as well as coveted awards, including many from juried, fine art competitions. After living in many parts of the US, Asia and Europe, Karen has settled in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina.
