Stop and shop for art

By MARY ANN MARGER

© St. Petersburg Times, published December 7, 2000


Though ArtSpace is the only venue that has announced sales going to charity, all sales enrich St. Petersburg's burgeoning arts community as well as the recipients on your gift list.

The walk takes place 5:30 to 9 p.m. Some of the galleries have restocked their walls, shelves and cases since last month's two-day blitz of their special holiday offerings; others (Ambiance, EastWest, 531 Central) have mounted new shows.

Events-within-the-event: Trunk show of dichroic-coated glass jewelry by Dennis Peabody at the Arts Center; potter's wheel demo by Don Williams at Heavenly Things.

Plan your own itinerary from the list of participating galleries:
