Twenty artists converged on the library on a beautiful fall day to give us an incredible array of paintings that will forever immortalize our lovely little building. With a host of 20 volunteers taking care of everything, the event was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone who participated and the over 100 visitors we had come through the festival.
Thanks to everyone who came…to all others, the festival paintings will be on exhibit in the City Hall lobby in St. Petersburg, 175 5th St N. beginning Monday November 5. Please try to make the time to stop by and see the collection – after November it will be split among all the collectors who have purchased the works.
