New Stock Island Arts District Kicks off Second Saturday Art Strolls November 9
The I Love Stock Island Initiative, along with the artists, makers and craftsmen who call Stock Island home, have teamed up to create the all-new Stock Island Arts District. The area encompasses Collections Key West at Safe Harbor Marina, The Art Shack at 6404 Front Street, The Shops at the Perry Hotel including the Green Pineapple at 7001 Shrimp Road, Stock Yard Studios and SoulHouse at 5700 4th Ave., The Studios at Stock Island Marina Village at 7005 Shrimp Road and Washed Up Studios in their new location at 6475 2nd Street. Each spot offers a variety of eclectic shops and working studios with multiple artists and disciplines from sculptures to woodworking, mosaics to screen printing, soaps to fabric art along with several retail and gallery buying opportunities. There are a few stand-alone studios that will be open for viewing, as well.
Guests are invited to 'stroll' at their leisure to the studios, many within walking distance of each other, every Second Saturday of the month through April. Some artists will offer drawings for great prizes and delicious food & beverages. It's free to attend and free to park. Guests can look for the bright pink 'Arts District' banners flying proudly at each location and follow the route on the mobile map accessible at www.ILoveStockIsland.org on Saturday. The next Stroll will be December 14 during the I Love Stock Island Festival.
