Historic Kenwood, St. Petersburg, January 16, 2023 —
On Thursday, February 23, 2023, (6pm – 9pm) the Kenwood Gables Bed & Breakfast (2801 7th Avenue N, St. Petersburg, FL 33713) will present the opening celebration of a 3-month exhibition of works by Historic Kenwood visual artists YaeL Kelley, Janna Kennedy, and Ed Garrett.
The 2nd Bohemian Night promises to be another splendid, art-filled evening at the sprawling 1929 Tudor Revival Kenwood Gables B&B. This evening will feature a Spoken Word performance by Martha JOY Rose.
Inspired by the Bohemian movement of the 19th century, Bohemian Nights are quarterly social and cultural events co-hosted by the Historic Kenwood Artist Enclave at The Kenwood Gables B&B. Each Bohemian Night celebrates a new group exhibit by Kenwood artists, bringing together neighbors, artists, art collectors, and travelers. Located in Historic Kenwood, the boutique B&B is a perfect venue to showcase the hyper-local artwork. The setting features soaring ceilings, an original fireplace, and historic details throughout the estate.
YaeL Kelley is an organic expressionist working in transparent oil glazes and metal leaf on canvas. Her work is experimental while using traditional techniques with up to 100 transparent layers per painting. The work featured is entitled Rootwork and is a deep dive into the symbolism of her connection with the Earth and her cultural history.
Long-time Kenwood resident Ed Garrett paints and draws from nature and a vivid imagination. While he’s exhibited from California to Georgia, this will be his first exhibit in Historic Kenwood.
Janna Kennedy is a mixed-media artist who has made award-winning 3D masks, wearable art costumes, Gourd Art, and paintings.
The multi-disciplinary artist Martha JOY Rose has performed on stages across America from New York to San Francisco. Her lyrics and music have been featured on Good Morning America and in the Wall Street Journal.
Following the opening event on February, the artists’ works will remain on exhibit at the Kenwood Gables B&B through May 2023.
