Now in its 3rd year, the Arts Annual is a group gallery and online exhibition, virtual arts festival and fundraiser for Creative Pinellas. The event provides a vibrant experience for visitors, a venue for artists, and a way to support arts and culture in Pinellas County. This year, we have worked with our artists and partners to expand the event into a multi-layered virtual and on-site experience.

Exhibition at the Gallery at Creative Pinellas: Nov. 12 – Dec. 20, Wed. – Sun. 12 – 5pm

The Creative Pinellas Arts Annual Exhibition returns to the Gallery at Creative Pinellas November 12 through December 20, 2020. A highlight of the arts calendar each year, the 2020 Arts Annual Exhibition will feature the artwork of two dozen artists, from innovative up and coming creators to internationally-recognized mid-career artists. Since its inception, Creative Pinellas has invited former professional and emerging artist grantees to display work or perform at the Arts Annual Exhibit at our gallery in Largo. Many of the artists produce new work that will be exhibited for the first time at the show. Visitors to the gallery will be able to view and purchase the art in person in a safe and socially distant manner.
