Here are a few pictures for you to enjoy from Wednesday nights Art Night on the Bayfront. Thanks to all who attended and make sure you come join us next Wednesday, the 7th, in the restaurant for Art à la carte
That’s right the next Art Night on the Bayfront is just one week away and it is setting up to be a big one! Last month the threat of rain kept not only a few artists but a few people away. The ones who came out to brave it realized that it had passed and turned out to be a beautiful night. Some of our artists said they had their most sales so far that night. If we ever do have to cancel an event due to weather we will do so by 3:30 on the day of the event and will broadcast it on this website as well as our Facebook page. So please feel safe that the event will go on!
We will update the artist page in the next few days after we confirm a few more spots.
Some of you may have noticed a few changes to the website lately. We are adding another event to the Art Night Series. It will be called Art à la Carte and will be held the first Wednesday of every month inside Jaco’s Bayfront Bar & Grille. Each Month on the 1st Wednesday from 5-8pm we will feature a new artist for a meet and greet. We will have drink samples from one of our beverage providers. The great part is that that artists work will be on display and for sale for the entire month in the restaurant. Please come down and join us for the first one September 7th and meet our first featured artist Tom Smith. You can check out his bio on the Featured Artist page.
We spent all day talking with people and worrying about the rain that just didn’t seem to want to stop. We decided that if at 3:30 it was still raining we would call off the event, but luck was on our side!!! Around 1:30 the drizzle stopped and by 2:00 the clouds were starting to break. We had some die hard artists show up right at 2:00 ready to sign in rain or shine and by 3:30 we already had 35 artists checked in and setting up. What a great and cool night it turned out to be. Here are just a few pictures from the night. Make sure you join us for the August 31st event!
Tomorrows event is looking great! We have over 40 artists confirmed as well as 3 musicians. You will be able to enjoy the art and music at every point in the event from Merrill Lynch all the way to the end of the Palafox Pier. A large amount of our same artists will be back and in their same spots along with a bunch of new faces and mediums. We have an updated list of artists with their mediums on the Artist page. To help centralize things we have moved the Beverage area to the corner of Jaco’s since we are now displaying artist both in the Avenida King Juan Carlos I Promenade and on the southern end of Plaza de Luna.
The Pensacola Museum of Art will have their tent filled this month with information about the museum as well as a kids activity area and a huge canvas where you will be able to show some of your own artistic flair!
Fitness Onboard will be back showing off all of the great things they can do on stand up paddle-boards right there in the marina. Stop by while your getting your beverage and check them out. They will also have a tent where you can get more information on their programs or sign up for a class
Condor Sailing Adventures will be docked in the marina as well showing off the beautiful Dare Trimaran. You can stop by their table and register to win a great sailing package to be given away at the end of the evening.
This will be another great evening and we hope you will all be down to join us on the Bayfront!
That’s right the next Art Night on the Bayfront is only one week away. We will post a partial list of artist in the next couple days. This time we will have even more music for you, the Fitness Onboard crew will be back doing live demos, and as an added treat Condor Sailing Adventures will be holding a drawing for a free sailing package. We will post more in a couple days…so stay tuned!
THANK YOU ONE AND ALL!!
The second Art Night on the Bayfront and what a huge succes and such fast growth. We have to thank all of the Artists, Musicians, The Pensacola Museum of Art, The Pensacola School of Massage, Fitness Onboard, and of course all of you that came out to enjoy another great night!
This time we had 36 artists and as best we could tell about 600 of you walking around enjoying them. It was great to see so many of you hang out on the railing watching the Fitness Onboard crew do there demos and what a great addition the musical talent made.
The July 27th event looks like it will set another new mark. We already have artist submissions coming in and should easily hit the 50 mark. Fitness on Board has agreed to come back down and provide another great exhibition in the marina. We have also already locked in 3 musicians and the PMA is already talking about their plans for their tent on the north end of the fountain.
Below are a few comments from some of our artists and patrons that we wanted to share with you.
“I wanted to take the time and THANK YOU for letting us be a part of your event! We have been a part of many art events throughout the years. Wed. at Jaco’s was the BEST by far! I heard other artists also saying that! ….. You treated us with great respect & I thought you should know that everyone really appreciated it! I did GREAT in selling my photography & art!”
“…enjoyed the whole atmosphere. Wonderful Art, warm temperatures, people singing or playing instruments, kids playing in the water sprays in the middle of the park, everyone walking around talking and smiling. Way to go Pensacola! Nice to see our downtown starting to wake up. Looks great down on the Bayfront!”
“This is a great little event, I am glad to see Pensacola stepping it up!”
Thanks Again…and we will see you on the 27th!
