TARPON SPRINGS — Inspiring art. Uplifting piano music. Cool temps.

What could be more refreshing than a stroll inside the Leepa-Rattner Museum of Art as it hosts its two-day Artists Market this weekend?

During the event, admission is free to both the art mart and the museum.

More than 30 local artists will display and sell a variety of artwork, including folk art, pottery, sculptures, paintings and stained glass to benefit the museum and Isabelle's Museum Store.

"It's a cool art show in the heat of August," said Ann Feldshue, creator and organizer of the semiannual event. "It's a chance for people to start their Christmas shopping and see our hidden gem on the Tarpon Springs campus."

It's also an opportunity to see 20 large-scale, meditation-inspired abstract paintings by Egyptian-born, Tampa Bay artist Bassmi Ibrahim in a collection of works, The Isness of Being.

Food and refreshments will be for sale.

The Artists Market runs Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 1 to 5 p.m.

The art museum is located just west of U.S. 19 at 600 Klosterman Road on the Tarpon Springs campus of St. Petersburg College. Enter on Belcher Road. Call (727) 712-5762 or visit spcollege.edu/museum.
