GULFPORT - The Professional Association of Visual Artists joined with the City of Gulfport and the Downtown Merchant Association to host the 2Cool Art Show.
This juried fine art and fine craft show takes place on Saturday and Sunday, Feb. 8-9, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thirty-eight juried artists will show and sell their work within the Gulfport Casino, located at 5500 Shore Blvd. on the waterfront in Gulfport.
Parking and admission is free for this weekend event.
An invitation from the city of Gulfport encouraged this new show to emerge – an event that features the artistic work of PAVA’s statewide members.
Since 2012, the city of Gulfport and the city’s Merchant Association have been delighted with the response from the community and have asked PAVA to come back for a third show.
For the past 25 years, art patrons have enjoyed PAVA’s July Cool Art Show in St. Petersburg. Susan Rollins Gehring, president of the Professional Association of Visual Artists, said she is proud to be co?sponsoring this event with the city of Gulfport in a historic building that has been referred to as the “heart and hub” of Gulfport.
