Warehouse Arts District Sweetheart Gallery Walk

St Petersburg Clay Company

St Petersburg Clay Company

The Warehouse Arts District had its first Sweetheart Gallery Walk yesterday. The participating artists provided a free trolley tour of the Warehouse Arts District, which runs from 1st Avenue N to 10th Avenue S, from 16th St to 31st St in St Petersburg, Florida.

The historic Seaboard Coastline railroad station is the home of St Petersburg Clay Company. There you’ll see outdoor kilns, artists studios, a gallery and retail clay supplies. Wending back through the district, you’ll find Duncan McClellan Glass. Duncan took over an old tomato¬†packing plant (or was it a fish processing plant?) and has made a studio, gallery, hot shop and residence. Artists are moving to St. Pete.

The Warehouse Arts District (WAD) was founded in 2012 with the goal of creating a community to attract artists from all over the country to live and create in St. Petersburg. Their ¬†motto is “Where Art is Made”. There are several arts clusters nearby with galleries and shops, but this industrial area is for noisy artists, down to the nitty gritty. The old industrial/manufacturing warehouses offer great space for large equipment. Many artists are choosing this area to work and to live.

Participating artists/venues included: Craftsman House Gallery, Nuance Galleries, Grand Central Stained Glass, Articles Gallery, St Pete Clay Company, MGA Sculpture Studio, C Glass Studio, Soft Water Studio, Duncan McClellan Glass Art Studio and Hot Shop, Zen Glass and Charlie Parker Pottery.
