The 25th Cool Art Show — a success!

Cool Art Show 25 from the balcony.
Cool Art Show Celebrates 25 years in St. Petersburg

It was Cool inside the Coliseum at the annual Cool Art Show July 20 – 21, 2013!

The Cool Art Show arrived in the midst of summer, oblivious to heat and storms. This is a juried fine art and craft event displaying high caliber work from 80 local and statewide artists, hosted by PAVA, the Professional Association of Visual Artists.  All artwork is made in America – hand created by the artist and for sale. A remarkable collection of visual and functional creations in paint, wood, ceramics, photography, metal, glass, mixed media and jewelry. PAVA continues its tradition of representing distinction across the spectrum of artistic media.

 Cool Art has grown in 25 years from its beginnings as an outlet for artists and the public in the slow summer, to a outstanding highly respected show establishing it as a not to be missed art event. In celebration of our 25 years a commemorative T-Shirt created by Denis Gaston, one of the founders of Cool Art, is still available for sale for $10. Contact us for more information.
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 Annual 2Cool Art at the Gulfport Casino in February.
