It’s the St. Pete equivalent of fall foliage – a sudden burst of color coming from our closely-knit visual arts community. Saturday brings the October edition of the monthly Second Saturday ArtWalk, which is always a treat once the fall calendar rolls around and the evening air is bit cooler (let’s not go so far as to call it “brisk” just yet). Some places will offer you refreshments, some have music. Others have ... surprises.
Nothing quite like an open-air trolley ride between groups of studios and galleries, where the art is fresh, if not exactly pumpkin-spiced. What’s special about this particular weekend is the sheer number of brand-new shows, and arts-celebrating events, available for the discerning eye for the first time.
