Leepa-Rattner opens 'Rocky and Friends' in honor of Palm Harbor art fest kinship

TARPON SPRINGS — The Leepa-Rattner Museum of Art is hosting an exhibition featuring the works of Rocky Bridges and pals in honor of the long-lived Palm Harbor Fine Arts and Crafts Festival and the friendships formed among artists along the way.

It is called "Rocky and Friends" — a takeoff of the 1950-60s cartoon show featuring a flying squirrel, a moose and fractured fairy tales.

"It's a perspective of the works of these award-winning artists dating back to the 1980s," said Lynn Whitelaw, museum director.

In addition to Bridges, the exhibition includes the works of Catherine Bergman, David Bewley, John Costin, Ummarid (Tony) Eitharong, Susan Livingston, Duncan McClellan, Carol Napoli, Judi Wood and Josette Urso.

The exhibition runs through Jan. 10.

An opening reception takes place Saturday from 7 to 9 p.m. in the museum's lobby and includes hors d'oeuvres, wine and soft drinks. It's free for members, $10 for guests.

The museum is just west of U.S. 19 at 600 Klosterman Road on the Tarpon Springs Campus of St. Petersburg College.
