PAVA’s (Professional Association of Visual Artists) Annual Cool Art Show has been a St. Petersburg tradition for over 30 years in the month of July. But this year, due to the interesting times we are living in, the show which was originally scheduled to take place at the St. Petersburg Coliseum on Saturday, July 11 and Sunday, July 12, 2020, will now be tentatively rescheduled for Saturday, August 15 and Sunday, August 16, 2020. In an effort to give the show’s patrons an easier way to shop, PAVA has created a new ecommerce website, https://www.TheCoolestArtShows.com/, that features the show’s juried fine art and fine craft artists’ artwork for sale.
The ecommerce website showcases an impressive collection of both visual and functional art in both 2D and 3D mediums including paint, ceramics, photography, mixed media, drawing, pastels, sculpture, and jewelry. Patrons who purchase online throughout the months of June and July, will be contacted to schedule a time and place to pick up their artwork, while those who purchase online during the month of August can pick up their artwork at the Coliseum over the two days of the show.
PAVA is also using https://www.TheCoolestArtShows.com/ as the main destination for patrons to view all updated information about the show as time progresses. Additionally, show updates, as well as artist profiles, will be posted on two new PAVA Cool Art Show social media accounts on Instagram (instagram.com/coolartshowspava/) and Facebook (facebook.com/pavaartshows)
The 32nd Cool Art Show is sponsored by PAVA, the Professional Association of Visual Artists. PAVA is a non-profit organization run by volunteer artists to serve local artisans and support the arts community in the Tampa Bay Area. It provides exhibition, education and grant opportunities for its members and supports local art centers through scholarships for art instruction.
