New in 2023...
ArtJones has broadened its horizons and created art community clusters. As we did last year, this year we are clustering our artists so visitors have fewer stops, but will see more artwork. Each of our 10 studio locations will host anywhere from 2 to 4 artists. Art stops will be located both inside and outside of area artist studios.
In 2023 ArtJones is a rotation of 28 professional artists at 10 locations throughout downtown Gulfport, from the waterfront arts district to Gulfport Boulevard. We are inviting exceptional artists from St. Petersburg and the greater Tampa Bay region to join us on this tour - local is regional and regional is local! Our Emerging Artist and scholarship programs are back! Thanks to the Enroy Foundation and private donations by the Forde family, 2023 ArtJones welcomes two emerging and scholarship artists. We aim to lift up beginners and help those who need a little bit extra boost. These artists show great promise and a keen attention to detail in their work. This year's winners are silversmith Ashley Wix and graphic artist Riley Pitzen!
