Artist Enclave Historic Kenwood
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.
Art-loving friends, neighbors, and visitors discovered March 16th and 17th during the 4th Annual Artist at Work Tour of 2019 in our beautiful neighborhood. Guests watched artists demonstrating their craft in home studios and enjoyed the delightful sights and sounds of each of the twelve stops on the free tour.
With over 20 Artist Enclave members participating, the tour enabled visitors to understand and appreciate the unique role artists play in the appeal and charm of Historic Kenwood. Folks from St Pete, as well as from all over Florida and beyond, are drawn by the simple pleasure of watching the creation of something uniquely beautiful, as well as the opportunity to take a piece of Historic Kenwood home.
Many thanks to Chairperson Jan Richardson and all the dedicated members of the Artist Enclave of Historic Kenwood for making this event so successful. We welcome any artists living in Historic Kenwood to join us at our monthly meeting.
