Kenwood artists open home and studio this weekend
Designated an Artist Enclave Overlay District by the St. Petersburg City Council in 2014, the Historic Kenwood Neighborhood – a geographical area bounded by 1st and 9th Avenues North, and 19th and 34th Street North – never shies away from a celebration.
Artists of every discipline reside within Kenwood’s leafy borders, creating a relaxed but creatively-charged atmosphere. And because it’s slightly north of the parameters in play by the St. Petersburg Arts Alliance’s Second Saturday ArtWalk, Kenwood’s artists have a self-guided walking tour of their own.
The 6th annual Art in the ‘Wood artist studio tour takes place Saturday and Sunday (March 18 and 19). From 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day, ceramicists, sculptors, jewelers, photographers, mixed multi-media artists, fine art painters and more open their homes and studios for visitors.
There will be live performances, too.
There are 21 separate stops on the tour, and an exhibition with work from Kenwood far and wide will be on view at Kenwood Gables Boutique B&B, 2801 7th Ave. They’ll have copies of the tour map, which is also available here.
