Anna Maria Island has long been a destination for Loggerhead turtles, and many generous volunteers have
spent many hours walking the beaches to secure turtle nests. When the nests hatch crowds of curious
islanders watch as the hatchlings make their way to the water. This years artsHOP wants to honor not
only the turtles who frequent our island, but the turtle watchers who protect them.
Join us for a weekend of fun and creativity during
artsHOP 2010. Create an original piece of art inspired by the
turtles of Anna Maria Island. All media welcome.
Your work will be exhibited at The Studio at Gulf and Pine
in Anna Maria during artsHOP 2010 and put on sale at a
Silent Auction, November 13th. (the artist will retain 40% of the
final selling price)
The silent auction bidding for auction items begins November 12th 1:00P to 8:00P Bidding is also Sat Nov 13th from 1:00 to 4:30 when high bid will win item and item can be taken by purchaser. Come in and bid on the turtles while you
enjoy the toe tappin' bluegrass of State Road 64.
