2Cool Art Show 2014

The Professional Association of Visual Artists (PAVA) joined with the City of Gulfport and the Downtown Merchant Association to host the 2Cool Art Show. This juried fine art and fine craft show took place on Saturday, February 8th and Sunday February 9th 2014. Thirty‐eight juried artists exhibited within the Gulfport Casino, located at 5500 Shore Blvd. on the waterfront in Gulfport. An invitation from the City of Gulfport encouraged this new show to emerge – an event that showcases the artistic work of PAVA’s statewide members. Since 2012, the City of Gulfport and the city’s Merchant Association have been delighted with the response from the community and asked us to come back for a third show.

For the past 25 years art patrons have enjoyed PAVA’s July Cool Art Show in St. Petersburg. Susan Rollins Gehring, President of the Professional Association of Visual Artists (PAVA) said she is proud to be co‐sponsoring this event with the City of Gulfport in a historic building that has been referred to as the “heart and hub” of Gulfport. 2Cool Art Show’s proximity to Valentine’s Day provided an excellent opportunity to find that special fine art gift for your special person. This was also a chance for our winter visitor/resident to see the quality of work that PAVA has been presenting for the past 25 years during the summer Cool Show.
