The bay area Art Car movement returns to St. Petersburg on Saturday, September 26 when Carmada rolls back into the Plaza at the Duke Energy Center for the Arts, between the Dali Museum and Mahaffey Theater, for a very special Arts Alive Day.

Bigger and better than ever in its second year, Carmada 2015 features a dozen custom art cars on display, live vehicle painting, free family craft projects from the NOMADstudio Art Bus, DJ Blenda, food trucks, a special edition of the St. Pete Indie Market, and more!

Join us afterward for the official After-Party at The Amsterdam to celebrate with live music from Luxury Mane, Funny Bunny, Smoke Stack Lightening, and Broken Things. They will tap a special Carmada beer and donate 20 percent of proceeds to our project! All that, plus we'll raffle off a giant gift basket of local goodies. Don't miss out!

Carmada creates opportunities for local artists, brings mobile arts programming to Pinellas County, and spreads awareness of the State of the Arts license plate. Funds raised through sales of this plate, available at Pinellas County Tax Collectors Offices, go directly to support the activities of local arts agencies throughout Florida—including Creative Pinellas and the Arts Council of Hillsborough County.

Don’t miss your chance to experience eye-popping street art in a beautiful waterfront setting. Join us for this exciting free event, and be there when the rubber hits the road in St. Petersburg!

Carmada is sponsored in part by the State of Florida, Department of State, Division of Cultural Affairs, and the Florida Council on Arts and Culture.




The Central Avenue Solstice takes place in St. Petersburg all day Saturday, Sept. 26 -- from sunrise to sunset, culminating with Movies in the Park on the west end of Central in Sunset Park. The Solstice event is one of the big, culminating events of SPF15 (St. Pete Fest).

We'll be sharing solstice sunshine from 11am - 6 pm with CHEERS FOR BEER, a sale of handmade ceramic mugs and tumblers by nationally-recognized artists. Most of our collection is made by local, uber-talented potters. It just makes sense to promote owning a finely-crafted, artist-designed stein, mug, cup or tumbler to personalize your craft beer experiences!

Complimentary brew with every mug purchase! Shop local, and come see the selection and the collection. Prost!


ARTicles is excited to announce the expansion of our current exhibition space to include the Leslie Curran Gallery. On September 26th, we will celebrate the Grand Opening with a group exhibition to kick off this new venture in conjunction with the Central Avenue Solstice event. The exhibition highlights over 30 artists, many we've showcased over the last 10 years and several who will be featured during our upcoming exhibition schedule.

Leslie Curran Gallery will be the only venue in St Petersburg dedicated to showcasing emerging and mid-career artists with monthly solo and small group exhibitions. Located at 1431 Central Avenue in St Petersburg, this unique space is just a few steps away from ARTicles, our flagship location.

The Grand Opening will be held on the evening of Sept 26th from 7-10 pm. Come see the new showroom, meet the participating artists, enjoy live music by the Ben Winkler Trio, and help us launch this exciting new chapter.

 In Tampa, at QUAID on Florida Ave, Just N, of Nicko;s

In The Future, You Are Here features new video-based and sculptural works by Gigi Lage. By frequenting airports after dark, Lage observes the identity of space and travel: the human experience of formal, structural qualities and the periods of discomfort and waiting involved. As a curated whole, the exhibition explores the liminal recesses of technology through the construction of abstracted and corrupted analog media.

Gigi Lage is a visual artist from Miami, whose practice often involves sculpture, performance, video and multimedia installations. She currently lives and works in Tampa, Fl, where she received a BA in Fine Art from the University of South Florida in 2013. Lage has exhibited extensively throughout Florida including: Tempus Projects, Tampa, FL; The Ringling Museum, Sarasota, FL; The Contemporary Art Museum, Tampa, FL; Morean Art Center, St. Pete, FL; and Gasparilla Festival of the Arts, Tampa, FL. Her work has also been exhibited nationally and internationally, most recently at the Roman Susan Gallery, Chicago, IL for their Streetlight video series. She is currently a member of [UNDISCLOSED]collective.

Located at 4636 N. Florida Ave in South Seminole Heights, QUAID is an artist-run project space in partnership with TEMPUS PROJECTS. The artists who run QUAID are members of the Tampa Drawers Sketch Gang. Since March of 2013 this group of eight Tampa artists has met weekly to collaborate and draw. The Tampa Drawers Sketch Gang has been organizing exhibitions at QUAID since January 2014, including solo exhibitions of its members and various other group shows and events.
