Get in the groove of the annual Studio Waltz

Twenty-one years is a long time to keep the dance going, but Studio Waltz has kept its visual dance in full swing. It's a one-day hop around North Pinellas artists' studios on Saturday to watch them at work and see the result. (You may make a purchase, too, of course.) The event embraces media from traditional painting to whimsical, mosaic-encrusted furniture. Let's go Dancing With the Art Stars.

Lennie Bennett, Times art critic
