GFA has also announced Betsy Best as its festival image artist. Twister II - Twist Again, uses Printmaking as the canvas for a playful and poignant representation of the intimate interactions we've all missed over the last year and a half.
The 52nd Annual Raymond James Gasparilla Festival of the Arts (GFA) will be held on March 5th and 6th at Julian B. Lane Riverfront Park in Tampa, Florida. This is one of the country's most popular juried art shows, which will award approximately $87,000 in prize money. We are honored that renowned artist and Tampa Bay native, Janet Echelman, will jury the 2022 show. Original artworks will be available for purchase from more than 250 participating artists around the US. Live entertainment, food vendors, and interactive exhibits are just part of the fun more than 30,000 attendees will enjoy.
