August temperatures are hot, and so is the art in the gallery at our new headquarters. Join us at August Artwalk for the continuing exhibition of "New Beginnings," selected pieces by our member artists signifying a new start, symbolic of our recent move to the Grand Central District. We'll have refreshments, including beer and wine available for donation. Chant the Trees plays live from 6-8! Beat the heat and take the Artwalk Trolley. We're stop #12, right in front of our gallery.
On April 22, 2017 St. Petersburg will celebrate Earth Day with a community celebration to be held in Historic Williams Park. Earth Day is celebrated by over a billion people in hundreds of countries around the globe. By celebrating Earth Day we join with others and share our common reverence and respect for this beautiful but fragile planet.
This free event is organized by Chart 411, a local nonprofit based in St. Petersburg. With the help of volunteers and environmental groups we hope to present a true community event with a focus on green businesses, environmental activists, and family focused activities that foster a deep appreciation for the planet we call home.
Find Creative Clay's tent at the festival! We will have fun art activities for the whole family!
On Friday, April 28th, from 6:00-9:00 pm, St. Petersburg's EDGE District showcases its FLAVORS, FASHIONS, and FABULOUS ART at the event, Savor the EDGE!
This event celebrates the eclectic character of the EDGE District and its unique culinary, fashion, and art identity.
Located between Dr. MLK & 16th Streets and 1st Avenues N & S, the EDGE District has become the fastest growing area of St. Petersburg and one of the most vibrant districts in the region. From a blighted state in 2014, the district has been the focus of revitalization efforts by the EDGE Business District Association, a nonprofit operating the EDGE District Main Street program. The Main Street has made great strides via extensive advocacy on parking and the EDGE master plan, and its programs providing business support and regional and state-wide promotional campaigns, among other projects. All Savor the EDGE ticket sales and a portion of alcohol sales will help support this important EDGE District Main Street work.
This event is in the spacious outdoor courtyard at one of the oldest and most beloved venues in the District, Ferg's Sports Bar & Grill (1320 Central Ave.). It will feature an exciting evening of entertainment for guests, including live jazz music, food specialties from all the top EDGE eateries, a fashion show featuring the styles of top EDGE boutiques, an art show and painting demonstrations by EDGE artists, and 50-50 and grand prize gift drawings!
