Welcome to the 1st annual GFA Tampa Bay Artist Spotlight. Vote for you favorite local artists below. Up to (1) votes per calendar day. Good luck!
The Raymond James Gasparilla Festival of the Arts is committed to the enhancement of the Tampa Bay area’s cultural arts. In keeping with our mission, we have created a new program with the support of the Gobioff Foundation, the Tampa Bay Local Artists Spotlight, that will help showcase local artists who are not part of the main festival show. Up to (3) spots will be awarded to local artists in the Tampa Bay area. Submissions are free and there are no booth costs. Interested artists will submit via this form and then the public will vote on their favorites. Good luck and get all your friends to vote!
