JURY DETAILS


Event Summary
Since its beginning in 2011, the 100 Artists Show has focused on bringing fine art and fine craft to its barrier island community.  Showcasing both established artists and emerging artists, the 100 strives to provide an outlet for the traditional as well as the most innovative art forms.

This highly anticipated outdoor waterfront festival takes place biannually at Horan Park at the City of St Pete Beach Community Center complex.  It attracts avid collectors of fine art and craft from this upscale beach locale and the greater Tampa Bay region, including year round residents and "snow birds" alike. A few minutes away, in downtown St Petersburg, is a vibrant art mecca featuring nearly 30 world class galleries and museums.  Among them are the Dali Museum, the Chihuly Collection and the newly opened James Museum of Western and Wildlife Art, to name a few.

General Information
The 100 Artists Show is committed to the exhibition and sale of fine art and craft.  It promotes high quality work from local as well as national exhibitors...both seasoned professionals and talented newcomers just finding their voice and creators of traditional and cutting-edge work. 
Admittance to the show and parking is free of charge.

The 100 Artists Show is a highly advertised celebration of the arts.  This year, we are partnering with KEEP ST PETE LIT to emphasize the connection between the visual arts and literature. Book signings with noted local authors and other crossover events are planned. Each show encourages local artists through a competition for cash awards in a tented exhibition in the center of the show.  Artisanal foods are featured in a separate marketplace toward the rear of the show to maintain interest and flow.

This is one of Suntan Art Center's major annual fundraisers. Suntan is a small, independent non-profit association that has quietly made its mark on the local art scene for over 55 years and sustains itself through the community's support of membership, small art events and an annual fundraising gala.

Show Amenities
Set up is allowed after 1:00 pm on Friday. 
Artists are invited to enjoy a complimentary continental breakfast on Saturday and Sunday mornings.
Booth sitters and lunch delivery from the food vendors is available
