Join us in South Straub Park, across from the St. Petersburg Museum of Fine Arts, on February 23-24, 2019 to explore original, handmade art at the 6th Annual St. Petersburg Fine Art Festival. The event is a ‘boutique’ festival of about 140 of Florida’s and America’s top artisans. The event is co-sponsored by the City of St. Petersburg and coordinated with the St. Petersburg Arts Alliance. Admission is FREE.
South Straub Park is transformed into an outdoor gallery showcasing extraordinary artwork that is all original and handmade by the artisans in attendance. These artisans and their works weave a tapestry of creativity from works in painting, glass, mixed-media, ceramics, sculpture, photography, metalwork, digital art, fiber art, woodworking – and more. Within each medium is a diversity of styles, materials and creative vision. Meet the artisans creating the works as they are all at the event. Learn how they became artists and how your specific pieces were made. If you do not find exactly what you want, consider commissioning a piece of art made expressly for you! Know that many of these artisans are represented in America’s top museums and art galleries and their works found in the most prestigious private collections.
The 6th Annual St. Petersburg Fine Art Festival is held both Saturday and Sunday from 10am-5pm. Admission is FREE. Wallets and purses mandatory as all artwork is for sale. Come enjoy the surrounding environs of downtown St. Petersburg while you explore art – and something of yourself in the process!
