Sweet Pete’s Celebrates Jacksonville’s Local Artists with a Sweet Candy Themed Art Show

Sweet Pete’s, Jacksonville’s only all natural sweet shoppe is excited to host its first art show.  The company’s founder, Peter Behringer has lived in Jacksonville since childhood and opened Sweet Pete’s in Historic Springfield last year.  As Peter spent more time in Springfield and the urban core he became increasingly impressed with Jacksonville’s art movement.  After attending the Riverside Arts Market and the Downtown Art Walk, Peter decided he wanted to show appreciation for the local artists who are working hard to grow art awareness in Jacksonville.

Peter shared his excitement with a customer and lifelong painter, Deborah Reid.   As luck would have it, Deborah also curates monthly art shows at Zodiac Grill as a charity fundraiser for Jacksonville Legal Aid.   Deborah encouraged Peter to host an art show at Sweet Pete’s and they decided together the show’s theme should focus on Jacksonville Landmarks and/or candy.

 The Art show@ Sweet Pete’s will host 15 artists.  Sweet Pete’s will offer samples of their all natural candies and chocolates along with chocolate & candy Martinis.  The show will also feature live music  by local band Fainted Paces.
