The Art Society is located inside the brick Train Station building.
Free parking is located in the lot off 59th Street, behind the building.
Artists and Photographers from the Pinellas Park Art Society meet to display their work in the gallery (Some of the art is for sale). Some artists work on their paintings and drawings, and some have even brought instruments to provide music (you can sing along!). There are also classes, workshops, and demonstrations. The group is open to all forms of visual fine art, and encourages new types of visual art.
New members are always welcome. Class and show schedules are published on the web site. The most up-to-date information is always available by checking in with the Facebook group, which is open to all artists, fans, and friends.
Board member Carl M Hetherly writes, “The March General Meeting is Mon, March 11, at Park Station, starting at 7pm. Come early to see the new show and vote for the People’s Choice Award. Awards and Ribbons will be given for the March Show, there will be Art Society News, an Update on Country in the Park, and announcements of other upcoming events. Light refreshments to be served.
Linda Smith, chair of the scholarship committee, wants to remind everyone the deadline for this year’s $1,500 Visual Arts scholarship nominations is soon approaching. A nomination form can be found on the PPAS website, and must be submitted by March 15th.
