About the Town :: St. Petersburg :: Wine, Art, and Heart :: Nonprofit Event

If you still consider the clay-spinning scene in “Ghost” with
Demi Moore to be the fifth most romantic film clip
, then you certainly
would have wanted to be at the WineArtandHeart.org fundraising event
this month. The event brought out the romantic and hotly fired
art objects from the collaborative artists at the Morean Art Center for Clay.

Held at midtown’s former train station,
converted to indie clay design studios, the event was SRO
and featured interesting wine selections, and gourmet food from area restaurants.

Restaurants  included 400 Beach with
hosting sponsors (Chef Rick and Danielle) providing shrimp salad and lobster bisque, Queenshead, and other remarkable foodie avenues and bistros in St. Petersburg.

The edible hit of the evening, other than the art displays, the wine, and the supporting cast of avante garde players who filled the hallways and corridors, was the lobster bisque.

The other hot items included glass jewelry from Leslie Belcher Huston (accessoreez.com) and limited edition giclee art, based on original tropical watercolors from Richard Jansen (jansenwatercolors.com).

Belinda Jines, a member of the board of King of Peace Metropolitan Community Church, commented that even though the place was already packed to the walls, they expected “hundreds to show up.” Thank heavens for overflow parking.
