Join us tonight for the 2nd Saturday ArtWalk in downtown St. Petersburg (recently named the #1 Craft Lover's City in America!) as we celebrate American Craft Week with Cheers for Beer! and a fundraiser for CERF+.
Cheers for Beer! features a super-fun sale of handmade ceramic mugs and tumblers by professional local and national potters. A complimentary St. Pete Brewing Orange Wheat local beer comes with every mug purchase!
Along with many other St. Pete galleries, we"ll be conducting an important fundraiser to benefit the Craft Emergency Relief Fund (CERF+). The highlight of our fundraising effort will be an opportunity raffle to win a beautiful, ultra-large, oval signature ceramic casserole by Jonathan Barnes, pictured above. We will have additional, handmade raffle items, too. Drawing will take place at 9 p.m. as the 2nd Saturday ArtWalk on October 10th winds down. If you can't make it in tonight, we can take your raffle ticket orders over the phone. CERF+ has been assisting the livlihoods of artists in need for more than 25 years, and the money raised will go into a specific 'Florida Fund.'
The gallery is featuring an exhibition of large format black & white photography by Clyde Butcher, titled "Preserving Florida's Legacy."
