“This event continues to grow and gain popularity with each and every event”, said Mike Piper, President of Pied Piper Productions. “It’s a terrific way for local artists to showcase their work, and the Harbour Island water-walk makes for a magnificent venue.”
The first ‘Art on the Water’ event took place July of last year. Tampa artist Brian Taylor came up with the idea for ‘Art on the Water’ after witnessing year after year that the fine art shows always seemed to be taking place across the bridge in St. Petersburg. Taylor felt as though Tampa art was dying, and being a local artist himself, he was not about to let that happen.
