Jackson’s Bar and Bistro will host Tampa Bay’s sixth ‘Art on the Water’ event on Sunday, May 20, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. The event was originally scheduled for April, but was canceled due to rain.
This Sunday, ‘Art on the Water’ will take place at its new location on Harbour Island’s water-walk next to Jackson’s, and will feature more than 80 local artists, live music and several businesses supporting local art.
The first ‘Art on the Water’ event took place July 2011. Tampa artist Brian Taylor came up with the idea for ‘Art on the Water’ after witnessing year after year that the fine art shows always seemed to be taking place across the bridge in St. Petersburg. Taylor felt as though Tampa art was dying, and being a local artist himself, he did not want to let that happen.
‘Art on the Water’ is free and open to the public.
