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 will discover amazing work during the 5th Annual Artist at Work Tour of 2020, Saturday and Sunday, March 21 and 22, in our beautiful neighborhood. Guests can watch artists demonstrating their craft in home studios and enjoy the delightful sights and sounds of each of the 21 studios and live/work spaces on the free tour.

With 33 Artist Enclave of Historic Kenwood members participating, the tour enables visitors to understand and appreciate the unique role artists play in the appeal and charm of Historic Kenwood. Folks from St Pete, 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 all the dedicated members of the Artist Enclave of Historic Kenwood for making this event so enjoyable. We welcome any artists living in Historic Kenwood to join us at our monthly meeting.
