Did you know Suntan Art Center has been around for over 50 years? Suntan has been affiliated with the property and facilities of the Don Vista site for over 25 years. The City of St. Pete. Beach has given us a unique opportunity to manage the building, and Suntan Art Center is committed to making the Don Vista art community shine.

We truly appreciate our members. Some members are able to make monetary contributions over and above their annual dues. We are a qualifying non-profit organization, so we also ask you to consider Suntan Art Center in your charitable giving, or in your will. We are a non-profit organization and donations are tax deductible.

Suntan Art Center also needs your time. Volunteers are needed to keep the gallery open, to help with cleaning the building, to work in the office, to help with newsletters, and many other responsibilites. It is going to take all of us pulling together and helping wherever we can to get the job done, to accomplish our mission, and to provide wonderful opportunities to the public through our classes, our workshops, our shows, and our various on-site galleries for both amateur and professional artists. Call 727-367-3818 and let us welcome you to the Center!
