This annual event is a big part of the Annual Tarpon Festival which revolves around the 31st Annual Worlds Richest Tarpon Tournament, a world class fishing tournament attracting anglers from around the world. The anglers bring their friends and families for a week of festivities and the event, which culminates with the Art Festival, attracts thousands of art buyers to our community each year looking to add original artwork to their collections. Widely recognized as one of the best quality small art shows in Southwest Florida, the show fills quickly.
This small exquisite art show on wealthy Gasparilla Island on Florida's west coast is the brainchild of Artist, Carroll Swayze. The show is small, just 60 artists and every year Carroll Swayze works diligently to maximize publicity, advertising extensively to attract an educated art buying crowd so that every artist in the show will have a successful experience.
The festival is invitational and this year Carroll Swayze would like to freshen up the show, hence this call for artists.
