November 1, 2014 – St. Petersburg, FL – Are you an art collector? Want to become one? Enjoy purchasing art to beautify your home or office or simply seeking that one-of-a-kind extraordinary holiday gift for a family member or dear friend? Then join us in South Straub Park on December 20-21, 2014 for the start of a new St. Petersburg holiday tradition: The St. Petersburg Holiday of the Arts.
Graciously co-sponsored by the St. Petersburg Arts Alliance and the City of St. Petersburg, the St. Petersburg Holiday of the Arts showcases the exquisite handmade and original artwork of local, regional and national artisans. This tapestry of extraordinary art is woven from works in such mediums as painting, photography, sculpture, metalwork, digital art, jewelry, glass, ceramics, woodworking – and more. Talk with the artisans that create the pieces – all artists are available throughout the event. As you learn how they came to their art, where they were educated and trained and how the specific pieces you purchase were created, it will add inestimable value to your purchases. Also know that many of these artisans are represented in the nation’s top museums and art galleries.
Hours of the St. Petersburg Holiday of the Arts are 10:00 am to 5:00 pm both Saturday and Sunday. Admission and parking are free. Bring your sense of discovery and appreciation of the beautiful! Wallets and purses will be most useful as all artwork is for sale! If you need directions to local galleries, businesses or restaurants while at the event, our Concierge Service will be there to guide you.
