This week's Friday Feature is Mermaid Bay Mercantile! You can find Mermaid Bay at 3107 Gulf Blvd (the main street of this charming little town), just a stone's throw away from the historic Gulfport Casino. Mermaid Bay is run by the wonderful and hilarious Andrea Farnum, who I always love visiting. She can tell you about any of the great handcrafted products and art in her store and about the makers behind these things. She tells great stories, too! Her staff and her husband are extremely sweet and likeable as well. Yay for nice people!
I'm having a show! It's this Friday February 5th at Disco Dolls in Seminole Heights, as part of the First Fridays Art Series. I'm just going to copy in the description, I'm so busy this week finishing up preparing!
"The Disco Dolls Studio will be featuring Gianna Pergamo for the month of February.
"New & Old Friends" is a collection of recent mixed media illustrations by Gianna Pergamo. Gianna's vintage-inspired animal characters may be found dressed up for a work party, relaxing with a hot drink, or perhaps on an underwater adventure. Prepare for fancy flamingos, elegant cats, and many beautiful mer-pugs, hung salon style and displayed all together for the first time.
Opening night will be during
First Fridays Seminole Heights 7pm-10pm
Along with many other Seminole Heights galleries and shops.
We will be serving up a new Disco Dolls Punch at the Studio Bar and red and white wine. Swing by and enjoy a festive night with great art!
If you can't make it Friday Gianna's art will be on display until February 29th."
