ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. – The Performing Arts exhibit highlights popular musical and theatrical artists from past and present in Creative Clay’s Good Folk Gallery in the Grand Central District of St. Petersburg.
The Gallery is open Monday-Friday, 9 a.m.-4 p.m., but visitors are encouraged to include a stop at the Good Folk Gallery this June 10, 5-9 p.m., during ArtWalk. In addition to this eclectic exhibit, Creative Clay’s Good Folk Gallery houses a vast collection of ceramics, paintings, and more.
“This collection of work by Creative Clay artists is inspired by the performing arts, and includes new paintings, as well as paintings exhibited this March at the St. Petersburg Opera Company, and in June 2022 at the Duke Energy Center for the Arts – Mahaffey Theater,” said Jody Bikoff, Director of Exhibitions.
“Our member artists were inspired to create paintings of performing artists, such as, Michael Jackson, Freddy Mercury, Ethel Waters, Bruce Lee, Harry Styles, and Elvis. Other member artists found inspiration in painting performers or scenes from operas and musicals, as well as dancers, actors, musical instruments, and karaoke singers. Each painting reflects the unique style of the Creative Clay artist,” said Bikoff.
The Performing Arts may be viewed in person in the Good Folk Gallery, and in its virtual gallery on Creative Clay’s website. The exhibit runs through June 30.

A diverse collection of Member Artists’ work is also available for purchase in Creative Clay’s virtual gallery on its website. Artists receive 50% commission on all works sold.
