Galleries, artist studios, and some museums open from 4 to 9 p.m. for the St. Petersburg Second Saturday Art Walk on July 12, 2014. Known as, "Five Art Districts, One Art Destination," the art scene in downtown St. Petersburg is thriving and growing, from the grassroots up. The St. Petersburg Arts Alliance provides an Art Walk Map so that you can visit the art venues individually, or you can ride the free Art Walk Trolleys from 5 pm to 9 pm, getting on and off at venues you wish to visit. There are shows and demonstrations, and in addition to the big, major galleries, there are lots of smaller galleries and individual artists showing their work, so there is always something new to discover each month.

There are three new exhibitions opening on July 12, at the Morean Arts Center and Morean Center for Clay. The exhibitions are:

96th Annual Members Show
This annual exhibition includes nearly 200 works of art expressing a full spectrum of images and ideas through all media, all from the Morean’s gifted members.

Rose Marie Prins: Homeland, Lost and Found
In this show, a site-specific installation using projection, sculpture, music and poetry, the artwork is inspired by Salah Al-Hamadi’s poem, "Baghdad My Beloved", in which he mourns the loss of his homeland, fled during the war that started with the American invasion of Iraq in 2003. The Opening Night Party at the Morean Arts Center will be open to the public on Saturday, July 12th from 5:30-8 pm. Prins will give a free gallery talk at 5 pm.

Red, Yellow, Blue: New Works by Lydia Johnson
New work by St. Pete Clay resident artist Lydia Johnson will be on display through July 18. Through the use of color and form, Lydia’s body of work invites the user to share in her visual translation of our rich, beautiful and varied world.

The two locations for these shows are:
Morean Arts Center - 719 Central Avenue, St. Petersburg Central Arts District
Morean Center for Clay - 420 22nd Street South, St. Petersburg Warehouse Arts District
