Jennie Pearl, founder and creative director of Bazaar Art, will host an exhibit spanning several decades of her artwork.

 

The art exhibit, entitled Bohemian Years: A Collection of Pearls, will take place from 6 to 9 p.m. Friday, April 20 at Second Century Studios, 331 Cleveland St. in Downtown Clearwater. Pearl’s art exhibit will be on display at Second Century Studios until May 10.

 

Pearl, a muralist, digital artist and photographer, will present a collection of her artwork spanning 30 years. Her art exhibit will include acrylic paintings, photography and works on paper. Pearl describes her artwork as eccentric, spontaneous, enticing and encompasses a broad combination of artistic and creative styles.

 

The April 20 art exhibit will also include a Bazaar Art Artist Throwdown featuring three local artists, live music and light refreshments.

 

Pearl has a partnership with the city of Clearwater’s Second Century Studios. She has hosted several art exhibits at Second Century Studios that have featured the artwork of local artists, and she has hosted several art classes at Second Century Studios.

 

Along with the local artwork, Second Century Studios also offers an opportunity for the city of Clearwater to promote initiatives designed to help create an attractive and engaging Downtown Clearwater for years to come.

 

The city initiatives include:

Imagine Clearwater, a master plan designed to revitalize the Downtown Clearwater waterfront. The plan proposes a design for an expanded and improved waterfront park and recommends a set of projects that will serve to activate Downtown Clearwater.
North Marina Master Plan, a design plan to enhance the Seminole Boat Ramp and attract commercial, retail, restaurants and more residential to a 64-acre area that covers Clearwater Bay to the west, Pinellas Trail to the east, Cedar Street to the north and Eldridge Street to the south.
Cleveland Streetscape Phase 3, a project aimed at enhancing Cleveland Street in Downtown Clearwater into a pedestrian- and bicycle-friendly street. The roadway will be improved and made safer by adding landscaping and decorative lighting, improving sidewalks, enhancing on-street parking and adding bicycle lanes along the corridor, which stretches along Cleveland Street from Missouri Avenue to Gulf-to-Bay Boulevard and Cleveland Street to San Remo Avenue.
Mercado/Public Plaza, a concept to create a market area and community gathering place with local vendors, weekend markets, music shows and movie nights all in Clearwater’s Downtown Gateway.
Second Century Studios is open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Friday.
