Attention music and art lovers!!! On July 15th, from 6:30 pm - 10:00 pm, Inspire Studios will open its doors to local artists to showcase their original pieces. These artists are are your neighbors, friends, and classmates, and they all have one thing in common, they have autism. Their art may be the perfect addition to your collection, or to start your collection. Please join us in celebrating the art and the artists. You may bring a bottle of wine (we have the glasses) to enjoy while you look through the art, talk to the artists, and listen to the live music. The doors will open at 6:30 pm and will stay open until 10:00 pm. The address is 8123 Ridge Rd, Port Richey 34668 and is near the corner of Ridge Rd and Little Rd. Admission is $10 and will include Hors d'oeuvres. All art on display will be for sale.
"We want to give local artists a chance to display and sell their work. It's the same as when we do open mic nights for local musicians to showcase their musical abilities, but this will focus on artists that are on the autism spectrum. We will have other events open to all artists throughout the year, but wanted this one to give these artists a chance to showcase and possibly sell some of their own work," said Jason Rhodes, co-owner of Inspire Studios. "The artists we have lined up for this first event are incredible. Some have been featured on TV and some are displaying their art for the first time ever."
