Art on the Water showcased Tampa talent
HARBOUR ISLAND - Watercolors of tropical scenes, sculptures, silver jewelry, bright T-shirts and more highlighted the recent Art on the Water show along the Harbour Island waterfront. Guests strolled the walkways while children painted T-shirts at a children’s activity booth. Russ Taylor sang “When I’m 64,” while he strummed a ukulele made from a cigar box. “It's just for fun,” he told perspective buyers. Artist Nancy J. Widder Baier of Tampa used the time to paint more vases to add to her collection for sale.“I enjoy talking to people and seeing how art affects them,” she said, adding that each interprets pieces differently depending on their own experiences. Art on the Water began about three years ago as a way to showcase local artists and create community awareness of art in the community. For information, www.artonthewater.net.
