Feb 19, 10 am - 3 pm

Artist Grace McKee presenting $460.60 to Denise Downey of Tampa Crossroads
for the Athena House transitional housing for female veterans

As a result of the SOUTHERN GRACE ARTS AND CRAFTS SHOW, the SouthShore Arts Council received $120 for the Firehouse Cultural Arts Center and the Tampa Crossroads received $460.60 in donations earmarked for the Athena House, transitional housing for female veterans.

We had truly magnificent weather and a constant crowd.  This FIRST ANNUAL show was such a success, there should definitely be a SECOND ANNUAL.  Contact Frances Hereford at 813-645-0004 if you want to be on her list.


A friend of mine, Frances Hereford, owns Southern Grace Inc. in Ruskin. She is having an art show with proceeds to charity and has asked me to invite creative friends to participate.  Not just 2D artists; writers, sculptors, singers, dancers, all the arts.
