It has been too long since we all were able to gather and share all of the goings on in the Warehouse Arts District Association and news about the expansion of the ArtsXchange.
The Social will be in the Tully Levine Gallery.
Plan to come to this fun event -- enjoy some beverages -- and hear about whats up.
The main purpose of abstraction in art is not to tell a story, but to encourage involvement and imagination. This art form has as its main objective to provide viewers with an intangible and emotional experience, being completely different for each individual, depending on their personality and mood.
Submit up to three pieces of your work that meets the parameters of this Call To Artists. The Show will be in the Burka Member Lounge from early October through November.

Saturday, 9/11 6pm Commemoration Event
On Saturday, 9/11 at 6pm, there will be a commemoration of the Rise Project - a monument dedicated to the first responders of that fateful day 20 years ago.
In St. Pete’s Warehouse District, on the ArtsXchange Campus, the monument will feature a 30-foot copper phoenix wing and a half-moon wall featuring hundreds of hand-painted tiles. But the beam will be the centerpiece, hoping to emulate America post-9/11 as a phoenix rising from the ashes.
The monument is not complete yet, but it seems fitting to install the last steel piece from the World Trade Center as we honor those who helped the nation recover.
