Happy New Year!
We sure are looking forward to 2018 and all the exciting things that are happening here in Downtown Vero Beach and at Tiger Lily Art Studios and Gallery. With the new restaurants, new faces, fun events and beautiful art, downtown Vero Beach is the place to see and be seen in 2018!
We are starting the year off right with 2018's first First Friday Gallery Stroll tomorrow night starting at 5:00pm. As you know, over ten art galleries will be open, offering wine, refreshments, and an opportunity to view (and hopefully purchase!) some new art created by Vero Beach's local artists as well as some very talented visiting artists. Each gallery is unique and has something special to offer.
For example, did you know that Tiger Lily Art Studios and Gallery is not only an art gallery showcasing the work of six Vero Beach female artists, but it is also a working studio for these talented ladies? When you walk in the front door, a bright gallery filled with colorful art work, including oil paintings, acrylics, abstracts, ceramics and fine art photography welcomes you. But be sure to venture to the back of the space where you will get to see where the magic happens. You can view actual works in progress and, on weekdays, see the artists in full creative mode working on their latest creations.

And did you know that Tiger Lily Art Studios and Gallery is located in an historic church? When you stroll to the back where the studios are located, look up to see the old beams and altar, and take in the gorgeous arched windows along the side wall. We think it's a pretty special place and you will, too! So come by on Friday for the First Friday Art Stroll or stop by Tues - Friday from 11-5 or on Saturdays from 10-2 and see for yourself what makes Tiger Lily Art Studios and Gallery located in Vero Beach, Florida a must-see.
