The ArtsXchange St. Pete was created because of the increasing desirability of space in the Warehouse Arts District. As property values escalated, so did rental rates for studios and galleries, often pushing artists out of the very neighborhoods they have helped to improve.  Our non-profit association is working to stop this nationwide trend and have successfully created affordable, sustainable and accessible space for artists in St. Petersburg. Come celebrate with us!

This event is free but please register on the Wada event web page so we can have an accurate head count with enough drink for all.
