Only in Florida Show is our first Florida themed show. Diverse landscapes, palm trees, flamingos, oranges and more. If its in Florida, it is in this all media show! It was judged by Tampa artist Tim Gibbons known for his Funky as a Monkey Art Studio that presents his and other local artists in shows at Pinellas Ale Works and Hidden Springs Ale Works. Tim has taught art at many local centers including Hyde Park Art Studio for 28 years and The Life Enrichment Center for 20 years to name a couple. Here's Tim's sum up of our show:
“This show "Only in Florida" has a cool Florida vitality and fun professionalism. A strong presence that exudes a coherent force of color, form and imagination. A wonderful show for all to see and absorb. It lets Florida shine."
