My name is Kristina and I am a real estate agent who loves art - paintings, sculpture, etc. I love it all.
If you enjoy visiting museums and would you like to meet other people with your same interest, this is the group for you.
You don't have to be an art aficionado to join our group, only someone who enjoys art and would like to see more of it.
We live in a great area for a group like this and you can expect to see events planned in Sarasota, Venice, Bradenton and beyond.
I am keeping each Meetup for this group limited to a small group size. For one thing, many of the venues/exhibits are better suited to smaller groups. The other reason is that I want to get to know people and I find smaller groups are generally more conducive to that.
Again, because of the high interest in this group and the fact that our scheduled meetups have members on a waiting list I will not allowing members to bring a +1. The meetup spots are reserved for group members.
I will be tracking attendance and people who are No Shows for 1 event will be removed from the group.
Also, you are required to post a photo of yourself when you join our group.
I am still working out details with artists but for sure we will meet at her home studio ...
Thanks to group member Pat Clark for making this possible ...
Visit her website to learn about her and her art.
Join us at Art Ovation for Happy Hour.
20% of the food and drink proceeds benefits AFTA - Association of Florida Teaching Artists.
One of our group members, Barbara Zelley, is involved with this group and I have had the chance to talk at length with Barbara about the great work AFTA does connecting artists to students.
Let's help support our future artists ...
The more the merrier so bring guests, non-Meetup members, anyone ...
