November 5 & 6, Highlander Park, Dunedin, FL 10 am – 5 pm 

This popular event, which began over 58 years ago as a small arts gathering, has evolved into a highly respected juried show of high-quality art with balanced media involving over 200 artists. Held on the first weekend in November at Highlander Park in Dunedin, Florida, this event continues to grow year after year. Over 30,000 people of all ages attend this event annually, and there’s something for everyone. While adults browse the artists’ booths, a Children’s Pavilion provides an interactive art experience for children with arts and crafts projects related to the show’s theme. As the largest autumn art show in the Tampa Bay area, artists and patrons of the arts have found this event to be an enjoyable and successful weekend affair. Our community partners that provide sponsorship dollars every year make this event a huge success.

This community tradition provides the funding for the work that JLCD does each year.

The Junior League of Clearwater-Dunedin is currently working to bring awareness and solutions to chronic hunger and poverty in northern Pinellas County. All proceeds from this event are invested in training programs, community projects, and programs.

JLCD Art Harvest is excited to announce Patrick J. Reynolds as this year’s featured artist

“I have a saying that you can never choose art, it chooses you! Well in the case of my medium, it definitely chose me. The day that changed my life forever, was at an art event in New Orleans where I was doing a demonstration using a piece that I had been working on for weeks. Sitting at a large art table describing how I use the tools of the trade by doing tiny finishing touches, I reached across the table for my large cup of New Orleans blend deep roast coffee and Swish! my hand slipped, and drenched my 30×40 graphite drawing! So in a panic, I stood up and flung the coffee off the piece and into the crowd! They bursted into applause at how Theatrical I finished the piece with coffee and such a command for the medium!
Within seconds, a bidding war started, who would be the proud owner of this sepia toned coffee painting! Little did they know, they would be the first.
I since attempted to purchase the piece back, but to no avail, as they informed me that there is no amount of money that could currently purchase it.
Things have definitely evolved since then, as I was invited to teach different art techniques throughout Europe, not expecting that I would be the one learning. Once again, I found myself immersed in a world of real artists, the kind that paint from the soul, the kind that would rather paint than eat! It moves me to this day when I think of the old timer artists who try to convey how to capture a feeling in your mind and record it on canvas for others to feel for centuries. The techniques haven’t really changed much since Rembrandt, such as the use of boiled linseed oils and pallette knife, but I felt that I had stumbled upon a part of myself that I would not have realized if I had never been exposed to speaking to these old timer Italian masters. I was finally in my element, still drawing away with my graphite block but finishing it off with layers and layers of different types of boiled linseed oils and natural oxidizers that make the pieces last literally for centuries. Of course the main body of my work is figurative, it is actually story telling by nature. For instance a piece that has ribbons flowing down represents life itself embracing us, but sometimes the ribbon is tattered and torn, saying the life sometimes is not always happy and shiny, but we need those rough times to make us grow. And the base of many of my figures are on rocks insinuating that we must all find a solid foundation in life to base all of our decisions, because if you stand for nothing, you will fall for anything.
Today I paint what I feel the world needs most, to be loved. “
