SARASOTA (WWSB) - Red tide has affected everyone here on the Suncoast, even artists.
David Skaggs is a 360 Degree Artist. He calls his work Dave’s World Art. He uses whatever washes ashore on our beaches to create it.
David shows samples of his art on Suncoast View and tells how he makes it.
He says he is a fairly new artist. “I started about 5 years ago after a massive heart attack and I had to close my business. All my art is constructed of palm fronds and recycled materials including items washed ashore on Siesta Key Beach.”
And he is using his art in his own way to fight red tide.
He says, "I made a red tide raptor to bring attention to the Gulf Coast red tide dilemma and all who are affected by it."
Dave has a one man art show coming up at Historic Spanish Show. “Dave’s World Art” will be on display at Historic Spanish Point during November and December. Opening receptions are November 1st and December 6th from 6 to 8 pm.
