TECO Public Art Gallery in downtown Tampa is proud to present Creative Loafing’s 2016 Best Local Artist Beth Kokol in her first Solo Exhibition in downtown Tampa. Titled Indigo Blue, Beth will exhibit her Painting and Mixed Media work March 2 - April 30, 2017. “This body of work spans several years and encompasses many different mediums. Much of the work is Acrylic on Canvas and is a direct reflection of my move to a home on the water. The work that came from a trip to China includes Monotypes and Acrylic skins on watercolor paper and is more landscape in nature. Also in this collection are several Mixed Media pieces that include Papyrus Paper that I made and in some cases it is collaged with suede and silk from some very old furniture that comes from my husband’s family.” Beth Kokol will be present for downtown’s Fourth Friday Event on March 24 from 5:30 – 8:30 pm at TECO Public Art Gallery. Beth will lead a Talk & Tour with visitors and talk about her work, her inspirations and take questions. This event is FREE and open to the public. Please join us. [less-]

The Florida Holocaust Museum (The FHM) is pleased to present Courage and Compassion: The Legacy of the Bielski Brothers. This original, award-winning exhibition created by The FHM showcases the heroic efforts of three brothers who helped save more than 1,200 people while living in the forest during World War II. As portrayed in the popular film Defiance, the three brothers, Tuvia, Asael, and Zus Bielski, took refuge from the Nazis in the forests surrounding Novogrudok, Belarus. In the forest, they formed a community of men, women, and children. Through the brothers' leadership, the group survived starvation, harsh winters, and the threat of the Nazis and their collaborators. The Bielski Brothers Jewish partisan unit or otriad, as known in Russian, was unique. While the great majority of partisan groups in World War II sought to fight the Germans in their midst, the Bielski brothers cared more about preserving the lives of as many Jews as possible than they did about attacking the German forces that occupied Western Belorussia. For more than two years the brothers commanded their partisan unit in the Belorussian forests. Their acts of rescue during extremely dangerous times stands as a monument to courage and compassion. The Bielski brothers may be called Upstanders, individuals willing to put their own lives in danger on behalf of others. This exhibition tells their story. This exhibition is presented nationally by Bank of America and on display at The Florida Holocaust Museum from January 14, 2017 through June 18, 2017. [less-]

Greg Smith is a multidisciplinary artist whose work often involves the “artifice mechanic,” a character trying to “create something, trying to structure his environment, but who’s also kind of hapless, and, in the end, probably doomed.” Smith has a PhD in Physics, and indeed his work explores the big questions of our experience, albeit in humorous and home-made methods. Based in New York City, he is best known for his videos, though he also produces installations and sculpture. His innovative work explores the big questions of our experience, using humorous, homemade methods. Smith’s video Breakdown Lane (2013) functions as both an exploration of the archetypal journey inherent to the road movie genre and as a reflection on the video medium itself. Throughout the absurd narrative, Smith rigorously attempts to maneuver his improbable automobile out of the breakdown lane. Greg Smith earned a PhD in Physics from Harvard University and an MFA from Hunter College. He has exhibited widely, at institutions including Artists Space, New York; McNay Art  Museum, San Antonio; and Weatherspoon Art Museum, Greensboro. He received the John Simon Guggenheim Fellowship in 2013. Smith currently resides in New York City. Critic Sarah Goffstein has written that “beyond optical accidents, the makeshift mechanics of Smith’s vehicle put the artist at risk…It is hard not to expect electrocution or explosions.” The video is shown on an improvised theater in the center of his installation and was selected by Curator of Contemporary Art Katherine Pill to complement The Open Road: Photography and the American Road Trip.

“Joy rides, voyages of discovery, surveys, wanderings, migrations, polemics, travel diaries, and assessment of the nation. Is America even imaginable without the road trip?” — David Campany The road trip is an enduring symbol in American culture. Ever since cars became widely available, the road stretching over the horizon has represented a sense of possibility, freedom, discover, and escape — a place to get lost and find yourself in the process. The American road trip has appeared prominently in literature, music, and movies, but it has had an especially powerful influence on photography. As photographers have embarked on trips across the United States with the express purpose of making work, they have created some of the most important photographs in the history of the medium. The Open Road explores the photographic road trip as a genre. It traces the rise of road culture in America and considers photographers on the move across the country and across the century, from the mid-1950’s to present day. Beginning with Robert Frank’s seminal odyssey, The Americans, and including such renowned work as Ed Rushcha’s Twentysix Gasoline Stations, Inge Morath’s The Road to Reno, Lee Friedlander’s American Monument, Garry Winogrand’s 1964, Joel Sternfeld’s American Prospects, Stephen Shore’s Uncommon Places, and Alec Soth’s Sleeping by the Mississippi, The Open Road is a visual tour de force, presenting the story of photographers for whom the American road is muse. Exhibition organized by Aperture Foundation, New York. David Campany and Denise Wolff, curators.

Dig brings together recent works by Mr. Labauvie in his signature media of steel and pastels. The theme of the ruin runs throughout, as he seems to take on the role of archaeologist, digging into the earth’s histories to try to understand their effect on current events. The formal explorations of interdisciplinary artist Dominique Labauvie are rooted in both material and a highly developed relationship to philosophies of the drawn line. He has written: “When a line bends, it slows down; as it expands, it suddenly appears as a flat surface – it carves out its presence in space like a black hole. The ground (any ground: earth, wood or stone) hosts the forged lines as the landscape that for centuries has been mapped by rivers, roads, and highways. The line informs us about the absent forms, as only the missing remain in our memories, our books, and in our images. The line attests to the desire of thought.”
Born in Strasbourg, France, Mr. Labauvie has resided in Tampa since 1998 with his wife, master printer Erika Greenberg-Schneider, founder of Bleu Acier studio and gallery. He earned his BA in literature and philosophy from the Academy of Colmar and studied art history at the University of Strasbourg. He concentrated on sculpture at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris and later taught at the École des Beaux-Arts in Tourcoing, France. He has shown his work internationally. He is represented in the collections of the Musée des arts décoratifs, Palais du Louvre, in Paris; Musée d'art moderne et contemporain de Céret, France; and closer to home, the MFA and the Boca Raton Museum of Art. Mr. Labauvie has been commissioned to create large-scale public sculptures in Paris, Dijon, and Tampa. This is his first Spotlight exhibition at the MFA, organized by Curator of Contemporary Art Katherine Pill. [less-]

The Henry B. Plant Museum is pleased to announce a new exhibit, Menus: The Epicurean Experience, opening on March 17, 2017. Please join us on March 17th at 7:00 pm for a lecture by Patrick Dunne, proprietor of Lucullus antiques in New Orleans.  The shop has been featured in Conde Nast Traveler, Martha Stewart Living, Vogue, and The New York Times.  Dunne is the author of The Epicurean Collector, and has both written for and served as a contributing editor for a number of interior design and lifestyle magazines.  The lecture is free and open to the public. This exhibit uses original menus as a starting point to explore the fine dining at the Tampa Bay Hotel and other grand Florida resorts from 1891 to 1932.  These rarely exhibited menus draw visitors into the conversation of Victorian food, the source of food, its preparation, etiquette, fashion, and utensils that blend together to create the Victorian epicurean experience.  We will briefly touch on menu art and children in the Hotel dining room. This exhibit displays original artifacts, including menus, photos, clothing, and utensils from the Tampa Bay Hotel and other Florida hotels. At the Tampa Bay Hotel, and other Florida resorts, meals were not simply about eating, but instead were a fine dining experience.  Thought and care were put into food choices, decorations, place settings, music selection, and of course, menu design.  Dressing for dinner often took over an hour, and meals could be a full ten courses.  Meals for special events and holidays were even more elaborate.  Included in the exhibit are menus from holidays such as Independence Day (1898), George Washington’s birthday celebration (1901), Thanksgiving (1905), New Year’s (1912) and Christmas (1911, 1912). The menu is the map that guides diners through their dining experience.  It lays the foundation for what they anticipate their experience to be based on the elaborate dishes served, the number of courses, the detail and extravagance of the menu design, the international elements, and dinner entertainment. Blended with these obvious dining elements are the subtle ingredients of fashion and etiquette and the behind the scenes components of where food comes from and how it is prepared. Menus: The Epicurean Experience opens on March 17th and runs through December 23, 2017.  Entrance to the exhibit is included with admission to the Museum.
This exhibit has been graciously underwritten by Greenberg Traurig, LLC, The Knox Family Foundation, and Dr. and Mrs. Garth Drewry. [less-]

Dysfunctional. Conflictive. Glossy. Honest. Expressive. Controversial. Polished. Earthy. Materialistic. Grungy. Engendered. Documentary. Surrealistic. From April 25–May 12, The University of Tampa’s Scarfone/Hartley Gallery is showcasing the work — and viewpoints — of 12 student artists graduating from the Bachelor of Fine Arts program at “The Society Collective — 2017 BFA Spring Exhibition.” There will be a reception to honor the graduates on Friday, May 5, from 6–8 p.m. The exhibition offers an uncensored overview of a generational cross-section of society. Twelve young artists represent 12 individual viewpoints, which are expressed on the gallery’s walls. Their dissonant voices form a collective, awareness-raising, unorthodox comment on the ever-shifting landscape of millennial values: Ian Goldwasser: “My work questions our society’s awareness of the materials we buy and consume on a daily basis.” Katie Lane: “I combine figure with abstraction, and include high contrast, exaggerated color, expressive marks, detailed elements, and texture to express my dynamic view of society in modern America.” Sophie Watkins: “My work aims to capture the vulnerability of people and cultures on a glocal scale.” Krystle Parks: “Focusing on imagery involving endangered animals, my art symbolizes the real and surreal perception of the extinction of these creatures in contemporary views.” Hannah Hughes: “I photograph beauty for beauty’s sake.” Jameson Mato: “My travels are my source of inspiration, providing me with immersive experiences of dramatically different cultures and people.” Lindsy Tortorice: “My work consists of nude figures of women, whose body has the power to scream feminism and display the strength of its inherent beauty.” Caitlin O’Brien: “A central theme of my work is gender, and how it shapes the entirety of our lives; my subject matter is the experience of women and non-binary transgender individuals.” Ryan Lagasse: “My work is an exploration of self-development through the portrayal of androgynous and anthropomorphic figures.” Rebecca Lee: “Particularly relevant in today’s political landscape, my work shows what happens when the ones who are being beaten down decide to no longer take the prejudice in stride, and choose to stand up for themselves and others.” Lindsey Davis: “My artwork challenges the viewers’ inner psyche with a seemingly random juxtaposition of different collaged subjects.” Samantha Gatelaro: “I create a personal emotional sign language, designed to express contemporary feelings of estrangement and alienation.” [less-]

The Florida Holocaust Museum (The FHM) is pleased to present Courage and Compassion: The Legacy of the Bielski Brothers. This original, award-winning exhibition created by The FHM showcases the heroic efforts of three brothers who helped save more than 1,200 people while living in the forest during World War II. As portrayed in the popular film Defiance, the three brothers, Tuvia, Asael, and Zus Bielski, took refuge from the Nazis in the forests surrounding Novogrudok, Belarus. In the forest, they formed a community of men, women, and children. Through the brothers' leadership, the group survived starvation, harsh winters, and the threat of the Nazis and their collaborators. The Bielski Brothers Jewish partisan unit or otriad, as known in Russian, was unique. While the great majority of partisan groups in World War II sought to fight the Germans in their midst, the Bielski brothers cared more about preserving the lives of as many Jews as possible than they did about attacking the German forces that occupied Western Belorussia. For more than two years the brothers commanded their partisan unit in the Belorussian forests. Their acts of rescue during extremely dangerous times stands as a monument to courage and compassion. The Bielski brothers may be called Upstanders, individuals willing to put their own lives in danger on behalf of others. This exhibition tells their story. This exhibition is presented nationally by Bank of America and on display at The Florida Holocaust Museum from January 14, 2017 through June 18, 2017. [less-]

Greg Smith is a multidisciplinary artist whose work often involves the “artifice mechanic,” a character trying to “create something, trying to structure his environment, but who’s also kind of hapless, and, in the end, probably doomed.” Smith has a PhD in Physics, and indeed his work explores the big questions of our experience, albeit in humorous and home-made methods. Based in New York City, he is best known for his videos, though he also produces installations and sculpture. His innovative work explores the big questions of our experience, using humorous, homemade methods. Smith’s video Breakdown Lane (2013) functions as both an exploration of the archetypal journey inherent to the road movie genre and as a reflection on the video medium itself. Throughout the absurd narrative, Smith rigorously attempts to maneuver his improbable automobile out of the breakdown lane. Greg Smith earned a PhD in Physics from Harvard University and an MFA from Hunter College. He has exhibited widely, at institutions including Artists Space, New York; McNay Art  Museum, San Antonio; and Weatherspoon Art Museum, Greensboro. He received the John Simon Guggenheim Fellowship in 2013. Smith currently resides in New York City. Critic Sarah Goffstein has written that “beyond optical accidents, the makeshift mechanics of Smith’s vehicle put the artist at risk…It is hard not to expect electrocution or explosions.” The video is shown on an improvised theater in the center of his installation and was selected by Curator of Contemporary Art Katherine Pill to complement The Open Road: Photography and the American Road Trip.

“Joy rides, voyages of discovery, surveys, wanderings, migrations, polemics, travel diaries, and assessment of the nation. Is America even imaginable without the road trip?” — David Campany The road trip is an enduring symbol in American culture. Ever since cars became widely available, the road stretching over the horizon has represented a sense of possibility, freedom, discover, and escape — a place to get lost and find yourself in the process. The American road trip has appeared prominently in literature, music, and movies, but it has had an especially powerful influence on photography. As photographers have embarked on trips across the United States with the express purpose of making work, they have created some of the most important photographs in the history of the medium. The Open Road explores the photographic road trip as a genre. It traces the rise of road culture in America and considers photographers on the move across the country and across the century, from the mid-1950’s to present day. Beginning with Robert Frank’s seminal odyssey, The Americans, and including such renowned work as Ed Rushcha’s Twentysix Gasoline Stations, Inge Morath’s The Road to Reno, Lee Friedlander’s American Monument, Garry Winogrand’s 1964, Joel Sternfeld’s American Prospects, Stephen Shore’s Uncommon Places, and Alec Soth’s Sleeping by the Mississippi, The Open Road is a visual tour de force, presenting the story of photographers for whom the American road is muse. Exhibition organized by Aperture Foundation, New York. David Campany and Denise Wolff, curators.

Dig brings together recent works by Mr. Labauvie in his signature media of steel and pastels. The theme of the ruin runs throughout, as he seems to take on the role of archaeologist, digging into the earth’s histories to try to understand their effect on current events. The formal explorations of interdisciplinary artist Dominique Labauvie are rooted in both material and a highly developed relationship to philosophies of the drawn line. He has written: “When a line bends, it slows down; as it expands, it suddenly appears as a flat surface – it carves out its presence in space like a black hole. The ground (any ground: earth, wood or stone) hosts the forged lines as the landscape that for centuries has been mapped by rivers, roads, and highways. The line informs us about the absent forms, as only the missing remain in our memories, our books, and in our images. The line attests to the desire of thought.”
Born in Strasbourg, France, Mr. Labauvie has resided in Tampa since 1998 with his wife, master printer Erika Greenberg-Schneider, founder of Bleu Acier studio and gallery. He earned his BA in literature and philosophy from the Academy of Colmar and studied art history at the University of Strasbourg. He concentrated on sculpture at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris and later taught at the École des Beaux-Arts in Tourcoing, France. He has shown his work internationally. He is represented in the collections of the Musée des arts décoratifs, Palais du Louvre, in Paris; Musée d'art moderne et contemporain de Céret, France; and closer to home, the MFA and the Boca Raton Museum of Art. Mr. Labauvie has been commissioned to create large-scale public sculptures in Paris, Dijon, and Tampa. This is his first Spotlight exhibition at the MFA, organized by Curator of Contemporary Art Katherine Pill. [less-]

The Henry B. Plant Museum is pleased to announce a new exhibit, Menus: The Epicurean Experience, opening on March 17, 2017. Please join us on March 17th at 7:00 pm for a lecture by Patrick Dunne, proprietor of Lucullus antiques in New Orleans.  The shop has been featured in Conde Nast Traveler, Martha Stewart Living, Vogue, and The New York Times.  Dunne is the author of The Epicurean Collector, and has both written for and served as a contributing editor for a number of interior design and lifestyle magazines.  The lecture is free and open to the public. This exhibit uses original menus as a starting point to explore the fine dining at the Tampa Bay Hotel and other grand Florida resorts from 1891 to 1932.  These rarely exhibited menus draw visitors into the conversation of Victorian food, the source of food, its preparation, etiquette, fashion, and utensils that blend together to create the Victorian epicurean experience.  We will briefly touch on menu art and children in the Hotel dining room. This exhibit displays original artifacts, including menus, photos, clothing, and utensils from the Tampa Bay Hotel and other Florida hotels. At the Tampa Bay Hotel, and other Florida resorts, meals were not simply about eating, but instead were a fine dining experience.  Thought and care were put into food choices, decorations, place settings, music selection, and of course, menu design.  Dressing for dinner often took over an hour, and meals could be a full ten courses.  Meals for special events and holidays were even more elaborate.  Included in the exhibit are menus from holidays such as Independence Day (1898), George Washington’s birthday celebration (1901), Thanksgiving (1905), New Year’s (1912) and Christmas (1911, 1912). The menu is the map that guides diners through their dining experience.  It lays the foundation for what they anticipate their experience to be based on the elaborate dishes served, the number of courses, the detail and extravagance of the menu design, the international elements, and dinner entertainment. Blended with these obvious dining elements are the subtle ingredients of fashion and etiquette and the behind the scenes components of where food comes from and how it is prepared. Menus: The Epicurean Experience opens on March 17th and runs through December 23, 2017.  Entrance to the exhibit is included with admission to the Museum.
This exhibit has been graciously underwritten by Greenberg Traurig, LLC, The Knox Family Foundation, and Dr. and Mrs. Garth Drewry. [less-]

Dysfunctional. Conflictive. Glossy. Honest. Expressive. Controversial. Polished. Earthy. Materialistic. Grungy. Engendered. Documentary. Surrealistic. From April 25–May 12, The University of Tampa’s Scarfone/Hartley Gallery is showcasing the work — and viewpoints — of 12 student artists graduating from the Bachelor of Fine Arts program at “The Society Collective — 2017 BFA Spring Exhibition.” There will be a reception to honor the graduates on Friday, May 5, from 6–8 p.m. The exhibition offers an uncensored overview of a generational cross-section of society. Twelve young artists represent 12 individual viewpoints, which are expressed on the gallery’s walls. Their dissonant voices form a collective, awareness-raising, unorthodox comment on the ever-shifting landscape of millennial values: Ian Goldwasser: “My work questions our society’s awareness of the materials we buy and consume on a daily basis.” Katie Lane: “I combine figure with abstraction, and include high contrast, exaggerated color, expressive marks, detailed elements, and texture to express my dynamic view of society in modern America.” Sophie Watkins: “My work aims to capture the vulnerability of people and cultures on a glocal scale.” Krystle Parks: “Focusing on imagery involving endangered animals, my art symbolizes the real and surreal perception of the extinction of these creatures in contemporary views.” Hannah Hughes: “I photograph beauty for beauty’s sake.” Jameson Mato: “My travels are my source of inspiration, providing me with immersive experiences of dramatically different cultures and people.” Lindsy Tortorice: “My work consists of nude figures of women, whose body has the power to scream feminism and display the strength of its inherent beauty.” Caitlin O’Brien: “A central theme of my work is gender, and how it shapes the entirety of our lives; my subject matter is the experience of women and non-binary transgender individuals.” Ryan Lagasse: “My work is an exploration of self-development through the portrayal of androgynous and anthropomorphic figures.” Rebecca Lee: “Particularly relevant in today’s political landscape, my work shows what happens when the ones who are being beaten down decide to no longer take the prejudice in stride, and choose to stand up for themselves and others.” Lindsey Davis: “My artwork challenges the viewers’ inner psyche with a seemingly random juxtaposition of different collaged subjects.” Samantha Gatelaro: “I create a personal emotional sign language, designed to express contemporary feelings of estrangement and alienation.” [less-]
