Press Release for the 2016 2Cool Art Show:


Presenting 2Cool Art Show: 

2Cool Art Show January 30 and 31, 2016
Gulfport Casino 5500 Shore Blvd. Gulfport, Fl. 33707 

This is the fourth year for the 2Cool Art Show in Gulfport – and it just gets better every year!
Hosted by The Professional Association of Visual Artists (PAVA), the City of Gulfport and the Gulfport Downtown Merchant Association in a historic building that has been referred to as the “heart and hub” of Gulfport.

This juried fine art and fine craft show takes place on Saturday, January 30 and Sunday January 31, 2016 from 10 a.m. till 5 p.m. Thirty eight juried fine artists will show and sell their work within the Gulfport Casino, located at 5500 Shore Blvd. on the waterfront in Gulfport.
Parking and admission are free for this weekend event. 

A show small in comparison to the outdoor shows but big with the amount of talent. This is PAVA’S second premier juried fine art and fine craft exhibition which offers high caliber work from local and statewide artists, including the award winners from the local Gasparilla and Mainsail Art Shows: – Bill Underwood, Ana Varela, and Dave Bruner, Marilyn Vaillancourt, along with Highwayman RL Lewis. This show is a gem of contemporary and classic. A collection of hand crafted visual and functional works available for sale in paint, wood, ceramics, photography, metal, glass, mixed media and jewelry. Take your time, reflect on the work, and talk to the artists. It’s inside, it’s comfortable, and it’s not big. We have already done the hard part for you, now you decide what to take home.

This is also a chance for our winter visitors to see the high caliber of work that PAVA has been presenting for the past 27 years during the summer Cool Art Show.
Make a day of it and visit the show along with the charming waterfront town of Gulfport Florida.
