Local art shows are always a great source of inspiration for me… some better than others.
Wandering through the aisles of a show, a select few pieces will grab my attention and lure me into the artist’s booth. There I stop and focus and usually discover a greater sense of appreciation of the work. And when I meet the artists themselves, I gain a deeper level of admiration, connection and understanding. I usually grab a card from every artist that captures my attention – and the collection of cards becomes a mosaic of my mood that day. Here’s what caught my eye at the recent Gasparilla Arts Festival in Tampa.
And, by the way, money spent on a piece of art is always money well spent.
