Immediately following the grand opening of The Studios @ 5663 on Saturday, April 16th, the developing Pinellas Arts Village in the new creative district of Pinellas Park will be preparing to launch its monthly Pinellas Village Art Night Out art walk. Pinellas Village Art Night Out will launch on Saturday, May 28th 6-9pm and will continue to take place on the 4th Saturday of each month. The Pinellas Arts Village currently consists of Studios @ 5663, the container live/work unit with studio and gallery directed by Derek Donnelly, The Wordier Than Thou live/work unit, The Complete Sweet Shoppe, Swartz Gallery...and growing. As Gallery Coordinator for the Studios @ 5663, I will also be curating small solo exhibits for The Complete Sweet Shoppe, another property in our arts village. I am now accepting submissions from local (preferably Pinellas County) artists as I schedule the 2016/2017 calendar.
The Complete Sweet Shoppe is a small space with approximately 2 ½ walls suitable for display. Collections of 8-10 small/medium pieces (less if including larger pieces) are enough to fill the space. There is no fee to submit. No commission will be taken from sales from this exhibit. We only ask and expect that featured artists exhibit effort in organizing a simple 4th Saturday Opening Night reception for their show and that they publicize it to at least their friends, family and collectors.
Please submit 5-7 images of work that demonstrates the style you intend to exhibit. Also include a short bio and/or website. Submit to firstname.lastname@example.org
