For almost 20 years artists Mary Rose Holmes, Violetta Chandler and Helen Tilston have been proving how much they care... as they captured the charm of the colorful cottages of Indian Rocks Beach in their original cottage paintings. These award-winning artists have been recognized for their efforts in creating awareness and preserving Florida history and now it's time to celebrate!
On November 16th, following the Beach Art Center's Holiday Reception make your way to the Largo Cultural Center to join in celebrating the success of their documentary debut which has been produced by the Emmy Award-Winning team of Lynn Marvin Dingfelder and Larry Wiezycki.
