This November 10th and 11th the eclectic St. Petersburg Artist community is opening their doors and inviting you (yes, YOU) into their studios and homes for the inaugural Art Life Studio Tour.

Among the artists participating are: 

In addition to artist homes, there are a couple of businesses that are also showcasing artist over the two-day event.  Wendy Durand shares studio space in a building in the Warehouse Art District that is part of 2nd Saturday Art Walk.  Visit Wendy’s space during the day to have a better chance for a more personal connection. The second commercial location is Fab Fiber; a wonderful yarn and fiber store in Gulfport. See Elizabeth Neily and her fanciful creations during business hours there.  

This year, the touring hours are 10:00am-5:00pm on Saturday and noon to 3:00pm on Sunday.  Visit

P.S. Tell us what you think of this new event concept and stay bay curious by visiting us on Facebook and Instagram!

PLACES WE LOVE:) Tue, 16 Oct 2018 13:43:03 +0000


The Galley is in a handy location for folks frolicing around dowtown.  The atmosphere is comfy, the food is delicious and the staff are attentive and lovely.  This is not a big place, nor is it small.  It falls within the Goldilocks Range of “just right”.  The below deck feel you get in this space speaks to the maritime influences of the proprietors Pete Boland and Ian Taylor.

We enjoyed the Buff Cauliflower and recommend it with a cider or <insert favorite beverage>.  We plan to eat our way through their menu but it is hard not to habituate yourself to the Platano Cubano (a perfect dish BTW) or the calamari.  This is a place where you try new things and it is one of our goals for 2019.
