5th Annual St. Petersburg Fine Art Festival
Join us as the 5th Annual St. Petersburg Fine Art Festival returns February 24-25, 2018 to its new location in South Straub Park, across from the Museum of Fine Arts. The event is a ‘boutique’ fine art festival of approximately 120 of Florida’s and America’s top fine artisans. The event is co-sponsored by the City of St. Petersburg and coordinated with the St. Petersburg Arts Alliance.
The fine art festival transforms the grounds of South Straub Park into an outdoor gallery showcasing extraordinary original and handmade artwork. These fine artisans and their works weave a tapestry of art from creations in painting, glass, mixed-media, ceramics, sculpture, photography, metalwork, digital art, fiber art, woodworking – and more. Within each medium explore a diversity of styles, materials and creative vision. Meet the artisans that create the work – they are all here! Learn how they became artists and how your specific pieces were made. If you do not find exactly what you want, commission a piece of art made expressly for you! Know that many of these artisans are represented in America’s top museums and art galleries and their works found in the most prestigious private collections in America.
The 5th Annual St. Petersburg Fine Art Festival. Both Saturday and Sunday from 10-5. Admission is free. Explore and appreciate the beauty of art. Wallets and pursues mandatory as all artwork is for sale. Come enjoy all the surrounding environs of downtown St. Petersburg while you explore art – and something of yourself in the process!
