100 Southern Artists
The Holiday Season is upon us and the New Year is just around the corner, which means it's almost time for our 100 Southern Artists party in St. Petersburg, Florida! On Saturday, January 12th the St. Petersburg arts community will be celebrating at ARTpool Gallery from 8:00pm-12:00am. The evening includes a book signing with E. Ashley Rooney, live music, runway shows, & much more!
We are asking each southern artist who wishes to attend the event to participate in one or any of the following ways:
Be Your Art- dress as your art or in a way that you feel represents your art. Whether its simple or over the top crazy, we welcome you to take part in the celebration. Dress up as a character from your artwork, dress a model in your art. It’s going to be an evening of wearable art that represents what you do and what you feel emulates your vision for your art.
Paint or Design a Runway Model- will you be in town a day or two early? Events at ARTpool usually involve fashion and runway shows, and if you are so inclined, we welcome you to design a model as art for the show! If you are designing a model, please be prepared to bring your own materials, arrive at the event around 11am the day of the show and stay through until its finished. We will also need to know ahead of time how you wish to design your model so we can find one
Project Your Art- a great option if you are able to be present or even if you are unable to attend the event, we would still love for you to take part in the celebration! Artwork will be displayed on screen throughout the event to represent all featured artists. Please send jpgs of your artwork featured in the book to firstname.lastname@example.org
It is $30 if you would like to participate in the event as a featured artist and have your art a part of the art projection art installation (which includes your ticket to the show.) It is $10 for all general admission tickets for the public, friends & family & $20 for VIP seats. Each Southern Artist in attendance will also receive a special gift bag courtesy of Pollyzoom and ARTpool Gallery.
We’ll also have an interactive and collaborative artwork at the event for all artists and partygoers from the St.Pete community to contribute to. We expect a few hundred people at the event and would love it if you would be one of them!
