Gulfport, FL: On the first Friday of each month, you can visit Beach Boulevard in Gulfport for the fun and fantastic Gulfport Art & Gallery Walk! The event features art from several different perspectives. There are paintings, sculptures, photographs and even fanciful art created from upcycled items. That’s only part of what we exhibit. You can also find hand-crafted jewelry, self-designed and handmade clothing, accessories and bath & body products. There’s something for everyone!
This week’s Adopt-An-Artist is Seventeen-year-old Lucas Pitzen. Lucas’s love of traditional tools and techniques make him a unique young man. Instead of sitting at his custom-built computer playing games he is researching the elements for his next project. Whether he is restoring an old block plane or creating a new piece of furniture his attention to detail is beyond his years. Lucas prefers using reclaimed and renewable wood products for his creations that range from simple cutting boards to finely crafted tables. Along with selling his woodworking he believes in giving back and has already made his mark in Gulfport having completed the Little Food Pantry for the Gulfport Neighbors. Lucas currently attends the Lakewood High School CAT program and works with Pitzen Studios where his hand building skills and work ethic are truly an asset.
When it comes to music, we’ve got you covered. There are several venues throughout the Waterfront District that host live bands, so you have your choice of who to listen to, or you can jump around and hear it all.
On top of all of that, downtown Gulfport features many unique shops, boutiques and galleries with charm you will only find here. With over a dozen great restaurants, you are certain to find something that fits your taste, and it’s all within walking distance of all the evening’s festivities. Don’t miss out on your chance to eat at one of the foremost dining destinations in the Tampa Bay Area.
