Artists and photographers from around the country and the Tampa Bay area are painting and photographing Tarpon Springs Nov. 7-10.
TARPON SPRINGS - Artists and photographers from around the country and the Tampa Bay area are participating in the third annual Paint & Photo Tarpon Springs this week.

They will have four days, Nov. 7-10, to create their works, setting up in locations all around the city. At last year’s event, participants chose scenes at the Sponge Docks, Spring Bayou, Fred Howard Park, and several other sites, each interpreting the views in their own style.

Artists have been enjoying the local landscape since George Innes, one of America’s greatest artists, discovered the charm of Tarpon Springs in the early 1900s. Many other painters have stopped here during their winter tours over the years and we are continuing the tradition of recording the many beautiful and unique sites here in Tarpon in oils, watercolor, acrylic, pastel and photography.

The public is invited to watch artists and see how they develop their artwork. Paintings and photographs will be framed and entered for judging on Sunday, Nov. 11. An award ceremony and reception will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. at Artists’ Faire Gallery, 111 E. Tarpon Ave., Tarpon Springs.

The award fund is the result of local business and organizations showing their support for the arts. The public is invited to attend. A week-long exhibit follows at the gallery. This is an opportunity to purchase original fine art at reasonable prices.

This year, organizers have added an exciting new feature, A Quick Draw, which is an event where artists congregate at a specific site, set up, and paint for two hours, followed by judging and awards. The Quick Draw will be held on Saturday, Nov. 10. All artists are welcome to participate. Cost is $10 for those not participating in the four-day event. Call 937-7125 to register.

Paint & Photo Tarpon Springs is sponsored by the Tarpon Springs Art Association in cooperation with the Tarpon Springs Public Art Committee, the Tarpon Springs Chamber of Commerce and Prudential Tropical Realty.
