GULFPORT, FL: Meet our Adopt-An-Artist, John Young, on Saturday, February 18th! John is an award-winning artist whose specialties are in clay and wood sculptures. His beautiful works include wood carvings of sea life, much like you would come across right here in Gulfport! His art has been displayed in many magazines and galleries across the country, and he’s won awards at street arts and fairs just like ours. With that kind of resume, he’s sure to wow you. Not only does he make and share his art with us all, but John also shares his passion for art with underprivileged children and donates to charities for the arts. John’s visit to the Gulfport Art & Gallery Walk is sponsored by Little Tommies Tiki. They offer a wonderful water view and relaxing atmosphere here at Little Tommies. Their fresh, flavorful, interesting menu includes items such as the pulled pork sandwich topped with their signature apple fennel slaw, blackened fish tacos, sesame crusted Ahi tuna, or fried pickles, just to name a few. The homemade sangria, wine, & extensive craft and domestic beer list is sure to have something for everyone.
