On the first half of the show, Sculptor Mark Aeling was in studio. He is the owner/founder of MGA Sculpture Studio and very involved in the Arts community in St. Petersburg. He holds a Masters Degree in Fine Arts in Sculpting from Washington University and works as a commission based sculptor now through his company. Some of his many projects can be seen around the Bay area including the life-sized bronze dolphins for the Sundial, a shopping and movie complex in Downtown St. Petersburg, as well as worked with many companies including BayCare Health Services, Home Shopping Network and Sea World as well as the City of St. Petersburg. Mark is also the founding member and President of the Warehouse Arts District Association that was launched in 2011 as a 501c-3. Mark discussed some of the challenges artists face in a community such as descending upon a blighted community only to raise the values and then force themselves and others out due to the increased values that occur. Through the Association, Mark relies on community donations and involvement to ensure this doesn’t happen in the St. Petersburg area that is now thriving with artists. The district is defined from 1st Ave N to 10th Ave S and 16th St to 31st St. As President Mark launched an initiative which resulted in the purchase of a six warehouse, 2.7 acre site to be redeveloped as an Arts Center with more than 50 studio spaces for the artist in this community. Mark is always looking for artist and investors and donations to assist with the organization and you can learn more at http://www.whereartismade.com about the WareHouse Arts District in St. Petersburg and visit http://www.mgasculpture.com for more information on his business.
