From Friday, November 12th through Sunday, November 14th, the public is invited to join PAVA (The Professional Association of Visual Artists) artists as they leave behind their studios and demonstrate their painting, drawing, and photography techniques in the beautiful outdoor landscape of Florida’s Botanical Gardens.
Over a dozen artists will be scattered throughout the Florida Botanical Gardens during normal operating hours allowing the public to see first-hand how the artists create their artwork, ask questions about their individual techniques, and learn about what inspires them.
The artwork created at this event will be for sale at the upcoming Annual Gift and Plant Sale in the Gardens’plaza on Saturday, December 11th from 10am – 4pm. Specialty vendors will also be set up in featuring unique gift-giving items, as wells as a variety of plants, trees, flowers and herbs.
The Florida Botanical Gardens is located in Pinewood Cultural Park and is accessible at 12520 Ulmerton Road, Largo. Admission and parking are free.
