Local Artist Spotlight at the GFA

Gasparilla Festival of the Arts

The 2022 Raymond James Gasparilla Festival of the Arts happened this past weekend, March 5th and 6th. The Festival is an Annual celebration of the Artists and their works including ceramic, digital, drawing, fiber, glass, jewelry, mixed media, painting, photography, printmaking, sculpture, watercolor and wood. They also always have works by local young artists and live entertainment.

I was lucky enough to be nominated this year for a Local Artist Spotlight booth during the Festival. Myself and five other local artists were given this opportunity and given a page on their Local Artist Spotlight site.

During the festival, I was able to meet Artists from all over the country, meet art collectors, and sell my work. Us five local Artists even participated in a small interview during the event, which you can check out below:

Overall, I am grateful to have been nominated, and be able to participate in the festival. Here’s to next year!
