2023 Artist Studio Tour Guidelines
Saturday and Sunday – March 18 and 19, 2023 – 10am to 5pm
The Annual Historic Kenwood Artist Studio Tour is a self-guided 2-day event that is free to the public. Participating enclave artists open their studios to show and sell their work from 10am to 5pm on Saturday and Sunday.
Artists are highly encouraged to have works-in-progress on display and allow visitors to watch live demos of your creative process.
This is a non-competitive event. The annual Artist Studio Tour is our chance to show to the world one of the most unique aspects of Historic Kenwood: the authenticity of our arts community where we live and make art in the same space!
This is also a great opportunity for artists to sell their work to the wide public directly from their studios and homes. The artists get to keep all proceeds from sales made in their studios. Usual sales tax laws apply.
Let’s show up together! Artists with accessible studio space are asked to invite another artist who works in a less convenient space or outside the neighborhood.
The event will be heavily promoted in traditional and new media and through promo distributions around St. Pete. It’s still important that all participants help spread the word to make this a successful event for all. Let’s raise each other up.
There will be a map featuring all the artist studios registered in time.
The Studio Tour Committee highly encourages non-visual artists to participate.
Volunteers will be needed.
This year’s committee: Luci Westphal, D. YaeL Kelley, Paul Barrera
