The Artist Enclave of Historic Kenwood was approved by the St. Petersburg City Council in 2014 to accommodate a mix of small-scale home businesses oriented toward or supporting the visual, performing and cultural arts, while maintaining the residential character of the Historic Kenwood neighborhood.

The AEHK inspires and supports artists working in a broad range of art disciplines to create works of the highest caliber and encourages talented artists to explore, develop, showcase and market their creative voices.

An Artist is defined by the Enclave as an individual who practices and/or who creates a product in one of the following categories: Fine Art, Craft Art, Design, Photography, Filmmaking, Musical, Literary or Performing Art.


Historic Kenwood, one of the oldest neighborhoods in St. Petersburg, is distinguished by its unique bungalows and Craftsman-style homes, some dating from the early 1900’s. Because of Historic Kenwood’s high concentration of artists of all types, the City Council sought to promote the arts and artists by declaring the neighborhood an “Artist Enclave.” This status enables artists of the neighborhood to teach classes and sell artwork from their homes.

The upcoming date for the next Artists of Historic Kenwood Studio Tour is December 3rd 2016. Selected works ranging from seasoned artist to the emerging artist will be on display. You’ll find work by painters, ceramicists, jewelers, photographers, sculptors, etc. Come for a visit and meet the artists who make the work!

Artists of Historic Kenwood would like to extend their gratitude to our Titanium level sponsor Jim Longstreth ( and our Gold level sponsor Painting With A Twist (St. Petersburg).
