Best of Show at Gulf Breeze!

Our third Best of Show at this venue.
We've rocketed to the top once again with a Best of Show win at Gulf Breeze Celebrates the Arts this past weekend. Judge Carrie Ann Baade, a professor of art with Florida State University at Tallahassee, presented us with this wonderful prize during the Saturday night awards banquet held in the fabulous Gulf Breeze Community Center on the island just out from Pensacola. This little show is one of our favorite venues due to the fine committee and easy logistics. We were visited by a dozen of our loyal print customers as well as met two wonderful new original art collectors from Mobile, Alabama who carried away with them two of our small originals. It was a banner show, indeed and we look forward to exhibiting in the venue once again soon. Thanks a million Gulf Breeze Celebrates the Arts. WOOHOO!

We're about to head out on spring tour and look forward to seeing everyone at our Florida venues. We'll be opening our season with Florida's #1 art fair, Winter Park Sidewalk Art Festival, a three day event held March 21, 22, & 23. We'll occupy booth #62 on Park Avenue North.

For our second venue we'll mosey across the panhandle to exhibit in Gulf Breeze Celebrates the Arts held March 29 & 30. We'll occupy booth #60 in the Gulf Breeze High School parking lot.

Our third weekend venue happens April 5 & 6 at Tarpon Springs Fine Arts Festival. Last year we exhibited in booth 215 located along the cul-du-sac at show center and have requested the same booh once again for this year.

We'll have a weekend off before taking Tallahassee by storm for LeMoyne Chain of Parks Arts Festival held Easter weekend, April 19 & 20. We've exhibited in this venue more than any other at Florida and it's always been a good one for us.

Please consult our website at and blog regularly for updates since we sometimes change our schedule. We'll probably be integrating our blog with our website while on tour, and we'll post updates regarding that transition as it progresses.
