Benefit Art Auction to be held supporting The Studio@620

Media Release: Benefit Art Auction to be held supporting The Studio@620

For Immediate Release

St. Petersburg, FL (March 15, 2018) — A Silent Art Auction will be held on Wednesday March 21, 2018 from 5-8PM to benefit The Studio@620.

Pat Jennings, a longtime supporter of The Studio@620 and former owner of The Art Supply Store, recently donated a substantial part of his personal art collection to The Studio@620. Pat amassed over 50 works by local and national artists over the nearly 15 years his store was on Central Avenue, and instead of putting those works in storage, he sought a way to keep the work in the community while at the same time financially supporting the mission of The Studio@620.

At Pat’s suggestion, we will be holding an art auction to ensure the works in Pat’s collection have new homes, while at the same time raising much-needed funds for The Studio@620. Pat is giving 100% of the proceeds from the art sale to The Studio@620 and we are honored to be the beneficiary of his generosity.

A Special Members Only Preview will be held on Tuesday March 20th from 5-7PM Please RSVP to attend by calling 727-895-6620 or email

Said artist Leon Bedore in the Tampa Bay Times on May 10, 2017: "Pat supported the street art scene here since before there was a street art scene here.”

Admission is free and open to the public.
The Studio@620 is a non profit arts venue located at 620 1st Ave. South, St. Petersburg FL 33701
