Artists Tilston and Holmes during filming of Canvas with a cause

We are delighted to share with you our short documentary, approximately 8 minutes which aired on WEDU/PBS Tampa, St. Petersburg and Sarasota on Thursday September 17, 2020 at 8.00 p.m.

For our world wide friends, here is the link to Canvas with a Cause.  In a nutshell it shows the beautiful old fashioned seaside city (more akin to a small town) of Indian Rocks Beach.  This spectacular old fashioned town is on a barrier island and retains old world charm.  Two artists Mary Rose and Helen Tilston, through their art, have brought attention to this beautiful town and some say stopped the tearing down of historic cottages.  We feel it was the residents and visitors who joined in and objected to mass wall to wall high-rise condominiums.
