members for Anna Maria Island’s 8th Annual ARTShop met recently to plan this year’s November 7-9 event. From the left, Marlane Wurzbach, Joan Voyles, Ann Weir and Melissa Williams are organizing more than 15 Island art galleries and retail locations to promote local original art in all its many forms — from paintings to pastries, from tenors to tattoos, from plays to pottery for the weekend’s activities.
Friday evening’s events include the annual Gallery Walk in Holmes Beach and Anna Maria and a 3-act live performance of “Murders” at The Island Players.
The highlight of Saturday’s events is “Symphony on the Sand” by the Anna Maria Island Concert Chorus & Orchestra.
Sunday’s events include a second performance of “Murders” at the Island Players.
