Tampa Realistic Artists was formed in 1956, by people dedicated to furthering the ideals and principals of fine art, providing services to artists and the community to establish and maintain a permanent Art Gallery in the interest of “Art to Live With”, and to offer art education through exhibitions, seminars, lectures, demonstrations, workshops, etc. for cultural enlightenment in the community. Through our services and education and outreach activities, our objective is to serve artists and to increase the public’s awareness of art.
