Along the route at diffferent venues, ArtWalkers will encounter music, refreshment, glass art, video installations, ceramics, handmade furniture, oil, watercolor and acrylic paintings, collage, and sculpture.
Over the years, the Second Saturday ArtWalk has grown to encompass a large swath of downtown St. Pete and other districts, including the Waterfront Arts District, Central Arts District, The EDGE District of St. Petersburg, Grand Central District Association, and the Warehouse Arts District. Cimino Gallery is the first venue in the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Business District to participate in the event.
"These ArtWalks unify the St. Pete arts community. I love it that Cimino Gallery is included. It is so great to feel like we are a part of a larger community that really nurtures each other, and gets the public involved."
ArtWalkers can walk, drive, or ride the free trolley that loops through the Warehouse Arts Disctrict. Over thirty studios, warehouses, and galleries participate — some of which only open their doors for this monthly event.
The Central Avenue trolley costs $.50 and serves galleries on or near Central Avenue.
A good starting point for the ArtWalk is in the Grand Central District's roundabout at 10th Street and Central Avenue. Here, ArtWalkers can hop on a shuttle and venture into the Warehouse Arts District. Free parking is available at several locations. Go to http://www.stpeteartsalliance.org for a map of the ArtWalk, including parking areas.
Keep Saint Petersburg Local, Art Association St. Petersburg, Warehouse Arts District Association, and St. Petersburg Art Alliance are coordinators of the monthly St. Petersburg Second Saturday Artwalks. Keep Saint Petersburg Local is sponsoring a raffle of art including a limited edition, signed and numbered print of artist BASK's Love Letter to St. Petersburg.
