24th Annual Florida CraftArt Festival 2021

The 24th Annual Florida CraftArt Festival is a destination for tourists and local visitors to enjoy a fun-filled Florida weekend. Collectors and art lovers will be delighted by the creations of one hundred of the nation’s best contemporary fine craft artists from twelve states.

There will be artist demonstrations, food trucks, craft beers and a kids’ art activity tent. The two-day festival kicks off the Holiday shopping season and features handmade works in ceramics, fiber, glass, jewelry, metal, mixed media and wood.

Florida CraftArt Festival 2021 will be located just outside Florida CraftArt Gallery, at the crossroads of Central Avenue and 5th Street in Downtown St. Petersburg. The Residences at 400 Central - Red Apple Real Estate is the Presenting Sponsor. Duncan McClellan Gallery is the sponsor of the kids’ activities and children will enjoy creating crafts taught by members of the Tampa Bay Surface Design Guild.

Ocala artist Terry Andrews uses glass and metal to create his colorful wall sculptures.

Judge Bill May, the former Executive Director of Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts, will award $10,000 in cash awards to the artists on Sunday morning. Interested fine craft collectors can register for the Collectors’ Circle and commit to purchase artists’ work in advance of the festival, award their chosen artist(s) with a plaque and receive other valuable festival benefits.

Extraordinary blown glass wall sculptures are by Paul Willsea from Naples, New York.

Florida CraftArt Festival will showcase the talents of eight emerging artists with the support of the DMG School Project, as Florida CraftArt engages and mentors the next generation of fine craft artists. Emerging Artists receive a free booth, photography, postcards and the opportunity to show and sell their work. Those sponsoring the artists are Mark Anderson and Keith Bucklew, Concierge Financial Organization, Michael and Andrea Graham, Kathryn Howd and Edward Rucks, Tyler Jones, David and Becky Ramsey, Elizabeth Reilinger, and Barbara Sansone.

Florida CraftArt is located at 501 Central Avenue in St. Petersburg. Gallery hours are Monday-Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and Sunday, noon to 5 p.m. For more information, visit www.FloridaCraftArt.org or call (727) 821-7391.
