2Cool Art Show- February 9th & 10th 2013
Gulfport Casino 5500 Shore Blvd.
Gulfport, Fl. 33707
The Second Annual 2Cool Art Show was held February 9 and 10, 10 am to 5 pm, inside the Gulfport Casino, 5500 Shore Boulevard, Gulfport, FL. The show is presented by The Professional Association of Visual Artists (PAVA) in collaboration with the City of Gulfport. Parking and admission is free for this event located on Gulfport’s scenic waterfront and adjacent to downtown shops and restaurants.
With the resounding success of the first show in 2012, the City of Gulfport and its Merchant Association invited PAVA and its members to return for a second year. This is a juried fine art and craft event displaying high caliber work from 40 local and statewide artists. All artwork is made in America – hand created by the artist and for sale.
Susan Rollins Gehring, President, said PAVA is proud to be co-sponsoring this event with the City of Gulfport. Commenting on the 2Cool Art Show’s proximity to Valentine’s Day, she said shoppers can find a fine art gift for their loved one. In addition, weather wasn’t a deterrent because the show is held indoors in the historic building that has been referred to as the “heart and hub” of charming downtown Gulfport.
PAVA is a not-for-profit, artist run organization. It is composed of artists from throughout the state of Florida and Eastern United States. It has been in existence for over 25 years. PAVA hosts several art shows each year, including the upcoming 25th Annual Cool Art at the St. Petersburg Coliseum in July.
