Margaret Juul “Turbulent Waters” featured at St. Pete 2nd Saturday ArtWalk

in Uncategorized by

Turbulent Waters is the new exhibition of the latest water-inspired abstract paintings by Margaret Juul, the featured artist in St. Petersburg’s Second Saturday ArtWalk.  

Juul’s work – described as “expressing the effervescence of color and pattern of water in motion”— will be on display starting Saturday, March 8 at ARTicles, 1445 Central Avenue in St. Petersburg.

Turbulent Waters features nearly 20 illustrations of what has become a signature look for Juul, the St. Petersburg–based painter who has been creating vibrant and energetic multi-medium visions of water for more than 25 years.

As an art gallery and custom framing shop in the city’s Edge District, ARTicles — owned by longtime City Council District 4 representative Leslie Curran — has become a key factor in the resounding success of St. Petersburg’s flourishing Second Saturday Art Walk, as it makes its way throughout the city’s five arts districts, including Edge, Grand Central and the burgeoning Warehouse Arts District.

What began as a modest monthly stroll through Beach Drive and Central Avenue has now evolved into a high-profile showcase of more than two dozen galleries, warehouses and showings — all acting as visual confirmation of the region’s emergence as an arts mecca.  

Every second Saturday, studios, galleries and warehouses stay open late for an evening of exhibits and live demonstrations. The city offers an exclusive Art Walk Trolleys with free parking and transportation from 5-9 p.m.  

Turbulent Waters will be on exhibition until April 5. For more information, contact ARTicles at (727) 898-6061. To learn more about Second Saturday ArtWalk and other arts-related activities around St. Petersburg, visit www.stpeteartsalliance.org
