Paragon Fine Art Festivals was asked to assume directorship of the historical “Annual Crafts and Fine Art Festival” in Loveladies, NJ in 2015. The event was historically produced by the Long Beach Island Foundation of the Arts and Sciences (LBIF) for the previous 26 years. The event is held each year in ‘high season’ on the grounds of the LBIF. Under Paragon's directorship, the average gross sales in 2015 was $2512 (85% of artists reporting data). A good start to rebuilding and rebranding the event.
Long Beach Island is an 18-mile island on the coast of New Jersey. Tourists spent over $700 million annually during summer months on retail shopping. LBIF is the island's cultural hub boasting over 700 family memberships and hosting fine art exhibitions throughout the year in its main gallery. LBIF attracts over 60,000 visitors annually.
Remember, Paragon events are always about: Original - Quality - Boutique !
