Greater Largo Library Foundation
5th Annual Art Hop and Taste Fest
The highly esteemed glass artist Duncan McCellan will be the featured collection at the March 24, 2012
Our featured artists are Carolann Mancuso, Clearwater and David Braun, Clearwater. Carolann is an art instructor and has displayed her art at many local events and events throughout Florida.
David is owner of Preferred Custom Printing and is a photographer. David was born and raised in Pinellas County, Florida where he still resides and is a Largo High School graduate.
Our Rising Star Artists are Scott Durfee and George Medeiros, both of Saint Petersburg and of Spathos, LLC. Essentially self-taught, their interest in their chosen medium came about with the move to Florida. The palm spathe, with its majestic yet simple form, immediately captivated their artistic spirit.
The Art Hop will feature fine art of all different mediums from over 30 local artists, a Youth Art Exhibit by Largo High School and Elementary School students, and great food samples from local restaurants like Clearsky Beach Café, RG’s Restaurant and Bookmark Café, Texas Cattle Company, Cottage Cafe, and Coffee Gourmet.
Costumed actors from three theater groups — The 8 O’clock Theater, Francis Wilson Playhouse and the Westcoast Players — will be serving as guides and greeters.
Registration begins at 5:30 p.m. at the Largo Public Library, and participants may “hop” to several local shops between 6 and 8 p.m. via free shuttle buses. We will be featuring the following businesses on the tour: Oscar’s Award Glass and Mirror, Focus Graphix, Hammerhead ACE Hardware, and the Amish Store. Each business will feature an artist and offer refreshments.
