Coffee & Guava
July 18th at The Gallery Creative Pinellas
A Coffee & Guava Drop-in is part of the programming for the Creative Pinellas Tongue & Groove summer exhibit and offers a morning/lunch break time slot (10:30 – 1:30) on July 18 in which to visit the exhibit where Kathy Gibson and the artists will be talking about the work and giving informal walk-throughs. Thanks to Bay Art Files for providing strong coffee and fresh guava pastries throughout the morning – whatever it takes to get more people through the show!
