Island ArtsHOP – Anna Maria Art Walk

  • Public Art Exhibit Reception for one of the local galleries
  • Dramatic Performances by the The Island Players
  • Ice Cream Social and Museum Tour
  • Gallery Walks on Anna Maria, Bradenton, and Holmes Beaches, featuring original local art, refreshments, art demonstrations, live music, and a chance to meet the artists
