  • The ArtsXchange – 515 22nd Street South, St. Petersburg, FL

The ArtsXchange, a non-profit arts group in St. Petersburg, needs 15 volunteers to help them staff an Art Exchange event. Volunteers will help with parking and directions, check-ins, the art swap, and the silent and live auctions.

If you can’t volunteer, you might want to attend. Here’s the event information.

You loved your art, but now you’ve grown apart.
So bring that art to an event where you can exchange it for something you like better — the Art Exchange for the ArtsXchange.

Your ticket is the art you bring (one or more pieces you would like to exchange). If you don’t want to exchange art, come and make a $10 donation in support of the renovations at the ArtsXchange. Only people that bring art can participate in the exchange, but everyone is welcome to take part in silent and live auctions of new art in many mediums.

Food and beverages available from The International Dumpling Truck and The Amsterdam St. Pete.
Proceeds will benefit renovations of the ArtsXchange warehouses into affordable studio space for artists, the performing arts, and an environment for arts lovers to learn about and enjoy their passion.

Art Exchange — If you have art in any medium you want to swap, bring your art to the event on April 30th before 7 p.m. The swap will begin at 7:15 p.m. Getting there sooner than later increases the chances of seeing what’s available to pick from during the swap period.

Live and Silent Auctions – Artists can help build the ArtsXchange by donating art for the auctions (art valued at $250 or more). Please call Larry Biddle at 813-417-1225 or email him at larryjbiddle@me.com and register with to make that donation. Art donors are admitted free and can receive a portion of the winning bid amount up to 50%.
