Join us as the 4th Annual St. Petersburg Fine Art Festival returns to North Straub Park on February 25-26, 2017. The event sets up adjacent to the Museum of Fine Arts and is a ‘boutique’ fine art festival of approximately 120 of Florida’s and America’s top fine artisans and crafters, the mix including local, regional and national artists.
The art festival transforms the grounds of North Straub Park into an outdoor gallery showcasing extraordinary original handmade artwork. These artisans weave a tapestry of exceptional art from exquisite works 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, consider commissioning 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 in the most prestigious private collections.
The 4th 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 downtown St. Petersburg while you explore art – and discover something of yourself in the process!
