Fond memories were made at the
COVEæSaturday night. The Halloween party offered a family-like atmosphere with haunted decor.æ Artists met up with friends and made some new ones.æ Most of the guests wore costumes, and the getups were inventive and elaborate. And of course a lot of Pinellas’s younger artists were in attendance, especially the muralists. Some were part of the current exhibit “Dark Matter.”
