Tempus Projects – Between Earth and Sky
Opening reception Fri 10/19 7pm-10pm
Tempus Projects’ latest offering is the first exhibit from the Tampa Photography Collective. The group meets monthly at the Tempus Projects space to share and discuss new work. This show marks the first time they’ve exhibited as a group.
Good photography is difficult to come by and a medium not often seen at Tempus Projects. This is partly why the exhibit would be especially worth a visit. Also, though, the collective is made up of some very talented photographers – for example, check out Becky Flanders or Chris Otten. This exhibit was specifically recommended in Creative Loafing’s Fall Arts Preview. I suspect it won’t be difficult to see why. I definitely suggest taking the opportunity to see all of these artists exhibiting together.
Tampa Museum of Art – Art After Dark
Fri 10/19 8pm-11pm $10
The TMoA’s quarterly art party, Art After Dark, is once again upon is. This quarter’s installment features FIVE by FIVE, a benefit for the Arts Council of Hillsborough. Over 600(?!) pieces of 5 x 5 inch art will be for sale at the cost of $25. There is a bit of a catch, though: the artist’s name is only provided upon purchase. Further, the “partial” list published on the event’s website contains over 340 artists (again, ?!). Though it may be difficult sans names, look out for work from Neverne Covington, Vince Kral, Rebecca Sexton Larson, Kim Radatz, and Josette Urso. This is one of those collecting opportunities that shouldn’t be missed: the art is wildly affordable and it benefits art grants. It would be morally wrong to miss it. Fair warning: I’m gunning for that Josette Urso. If you’ve got your eye on her work I advise you get there early and be prepared to be challenged to the circle of death.
