What happened to winter? Sunday I was bitten by mosquitos while ambling about Boyd Hill. That's not a good sign.

Mindy Solomon will be a guest lecturer online this coming Wednesday, February 26th from 7:00-8:30PM Eastern Time! This lecture is presented by 92Y’s Virtual Clay program; registration is open to everyone and is $25.

Mindy will be speaking about the historical and contemporary implications of the relationship between object and environment. By investigating the interplay of three and two-dimensional works in space and how to engage consumer understanding and response, it is Mindy’s intention to assist artists in structuring a platform for professional development. This is a perfect lecture for anyone in the arts world – from artists, to other gallery owners – to hear the perspective of talented and funny Mindy Solomon.

Welcome to one of America’s highest-rated outdoor fine art and fine craft shows.

Artists and art lovers from all parts of the country migrate every winter to the Raymond James Gasparilla Festival of the Arts, where the country’s most accomplished artists and rising stars vie for the $15,000 Raymond James Best of Show Award and an additional $59,500 in prize money.
Held annually during the first weekend in March in downtown Tampa, it is a true showcase. Featured art includes ceramic, digital, drawing, fiber, glass, jewelry, mixed media, painting, photography, printmaking, sculpture, watercolor and wood. The esteemed event also features the works of local young artists, a weekend full of live entertainment and a children’s art activity area.
So make plans to join us for a most memorable and inspiring weekend – as an artist, visitor, volunteer or sponsor.

CARMADA: Art’s Mobile Fleet will present five featured art cars and an interactive art program in Kiley Garden, downtown Tampa, as part of the annual Gasparilla Festival of the Arts. A sixth car will be altered into mobile art, live on-site, during the course of the two-day event.

What's an art car? It's any standard vehicle modified into mobile artwork through application of paint, sculptural embellishment, and other techniques. During this diverse showcase of colorful vehicles, each owner/artist will be on hand to answer questions and promote their individual projects.

Confirmed participating artists include Carrie Boucher, Sebastian Coolidge, Jennifer Kosharek, James Oleson, Hunter Payne, Paulette Perlman, and Kiaralinda.

On display at street level, adjacent to Kiley Garden, the NOMAD Art Bus by Carrie Boucher takes mobile arts to the next level. Designed to bring art instruction into Bay area neighborhoods, the NOMAD (Neighborhood-Oriented Mobile Art & Design) Bus features an interactive arts instruction studio housed in a former Arlington Transit bus. Boucher will offer rotating hands-on craft projects to the public during the Festival.

Come visit us in Kiley Garden, downtown Tampa, during GFA!

Our donor vehicle has dropped out, and we are seeking a car to be painted live at this event! No cost to you -- Just park your car in downtown Tampa for a few days, and drive away on Sunday with an amazing Art Car! Details here:

Poets, musicians, comedians - whatever your talent - come on out to open mic nite at Inkwood. The audience is always encouraging in this adults only atmosphere. Book Mama has listened to our feedback and is turning down the overhead fluorescent lights so we can have the more intimate "lounge type" atmosphere that brings out our best performance. Show your appreciation by patronizing this truly unique local book store and buy a book or donate 5 bucks for beer, wine, soda or water - your choice! As usual, Moe Saint Evergreen will be providing our most excellent sound!!!
