The last Second Saturday ArtWalk of the year happens this Saturday, and since selling their work to us consumers is a big part of why St. Petersburg’s artists do this thing monthly, it should be pointed out that this is one of the final opportunities for a big (or small) multi-artist holiday art-purchasing binge.

It’s 5 to 9 p.m. Saturday (Dec. 10). Here’s the lowdown:

Approximately 40 galleries and studios, across all downtown districts, will be in open-house mode. Drop in, have a glass of wine, water, OJ, whatever, shoot the breeze, ask questions, peruse, admire, buy something if you desire. Or move on to the next stop on the St. Petersburg Arts Alliance’ handy-dandy map.

Meet many of our local artists. How cool is that?

A white trolley will loop between artist venues in the Central Arts District, Grand Central District, Warehouse Arts District and Uptown Arts District. There’ll be a costumed quintet of holiday carolers on board for the duration, and the big man himself – that’d be Santa Claus – plans to ride, too, from 5 to 7.

(Waterfront District galleries use the Downtown Looper, which runs every 15 minutes.)


Coming Dec. 18

More than 30 local artists in the Historic Kenwood District are banding together for a holiday event, Winter in the ‘Wood, Dec. 18, from 2 to 7 p.m. Starting in Seminole Park with live performances from everything from singers to acrobats … to, yep, last-minute gift ideas. Children are especially welcome (Santa is scheduled to drop by 3 to 4:30 p.m.)
