Support Local art at Tampa Bay's 6th Art on the Water Event
Local Tampa Bay artists will showcase their work along the Harbour Island Water-walk on Sunday, May 20th at Tampa Bay's 6th 'Art on the Water' event.
- Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater, FL (1888PressRelease) May 16, 2012 - Jackson's Bar & Bistro will host Tampa Bay's 6th 'Art on the Water' event this Sunday, May 20th from 11am to 6pm. The event was originally scheduled for April, but was canceled due to rain. This Sunday, 'Art on the Water' will take place at its new location on Harbour Island's water-walk next to Jackson's, and will feature more than 80 local artists, live music and several businesses supporting local art.
"This event continues to grow and gain popularity with each and every event", said Mike Piper, President of Pied Piper Productions. "It's a terrific way for local artists to showcase their work, and the Harbour Island water-walk makes for a magnificent venue."
The first 'Art on the Water' event took place July of last year. Tampa artist Brian Taylor came up with the idea for 'Art on the Water' after witnessing year after year that the fine art shows always seemed to be taking place across the bridge in St. Petersburg. Taylor felt as though Tampa art was dying, and being a local artist himself, he was not about to let that happen.
