 ONE NIGHT ONLY Returning to The Studio is Zach Dorn, who you may remember is half of the Miniature Curiosa team that brought us Moon City last year. Now Zach brings a solo project which weaves lost journal entries into peculiar tales by manipulating digital cameras through toy-sized streets filled with paper puppets. A lonely puppeteer stalks the child of two notorious celebrities, a three-foot ghost plagues an eight-year-old boy’s fragile psyche, and an opera-singing landlord refuses to return a security deposit. These stories and more explode onto the stage in this modern exploration into Toy Theater. It recently received a Jim Henson grant to transform it into a traveling show. It runs about 1 hour.

ALL SEATS $15

"Sweet little lies"

The incongruities of human individual and social behavior are the source of inspiration for Beate Marston's work.

Her most recent mini-series, "Sweet little lies", deals with the observation that, generally speaking, we "can't handle the truth" as the movie quote so aptly goes. It looks at our need to smooth out our social interactions by avoiding "the ugly truths" and opting instead for the sweet little lies we tell ourselves and others, so that we can face the world safely wrapped in our illusional coats of niceness.

The pieces have been hand built from red earthenware, colored with underglazes, then partially glazed and fired. Care has been taken to convey the subtleties of the theme in the expression of the individual piece and on the surface finish. The deliberate use of glaze serves to underscore the incongruences that have been dealt with thematically.

St. Petersburg's Second Saturday ArtWalk presents over 30 galleries and studios in the Waterfront Arts, Central Arts District, The EDGE District of St. Petersburg, Grand Central District Association and the Warehouse Arts District coming together as one arts destination.

Be the first to see new affordable works of art, as ArtWalk is Opening Night where many galleries and studios premiere new works. Some are only open on ArtWalk, and many offer demonstrations and refreshments. It’s impossible to take in the entire ArtWalk in one night! Plan to drive, walk, or take the trolleys to visit the districts of your choice.

Our free trolley shuttles will have an art guide on board talking about each venue on our one continuous trolley loop that goes from the 3rd Street and Central Avenue to deep in the heart of the Warehouse Arts District. You can park for free on 1st Ave N and 1st Ave S from 15th St to 30th Street. Additional parking will be available for trolley riders in the vacant lot at the Northeast corner of Central Avenue and 29th Street (Please note that this is NOT one of our trolley stops). In addition, venues with large free parking lots are Soft Water Studios, the Morean Center for Clay at the Train Station, the Clay Center of St. Petersburg, the Florida Holocaust Museum and the Dr. Carter G. Woodson African American Museum.

Duke Energy is our sponsor. The St. Petersburg Arts Alliance, the Arts Association St. Petersburg Inc., the EDGE District, the Grand Central District, and the Warehouse Arts District associations coordinate St. Petersburg’s Second Saturday ArtWalk. The St. Petersburg Arts Alliance strives to be the community voice, the umbrella organization for the arts -- facilitating artists, arts organizations and creative businesses to work collaboratively; empowering the growth of the arts community, and driving arts-related economic development.

ARTicles Art Gallery presents the exhibition What Remains: mixed media works by Jeannine Hascall in conjunction with St Petersburg's monthly 2nd Saturday ArtWalk event on Saturday, April 11 at 6:00 pm. Her works in paint, photography, collage, and fabric are tied together by a rich content and visual patina that reveals a contemplative sort of storytelling inspired by life events.

"Early on I was surrounded by women who spent much of their time doing needlework and working in their gardens. Much later I realized those practices and traditions were part of my artistic expression."

Jeannine spent much of her life in Southern Illinois and earned a BFA in painting and an MFA in fiber from Southern Illinois University in Edwardsville. Since moving to St Petersburg, she has continued to explore new media and ideas and began studying with Betsy Lester at the Morean Arts Center.

"I’ve spent years seriously gardening, and I’ve journaled and written otherwise about it. I have always been fascinated by and influenced by the full cycle of blooming and dying. The winter garden's role of returning to the earth is the most beautiful of all the seasonal gardens. As the quest to deal with death and decay are squarely before me at this stage of life, I’d like to think my artwork reflects this fragile, graceful element of what remains and what is lost."

Hascall's art has radical intentions embodied in its torn edges, uneven dyes and shadowy expressionist themes. The result is an incredible body of work with a soothing, earthy color palette, subtle textures, rich layering of imagery and pattern, and hints of her intellectual journey through life and art-making.

Hascall's timely debut solo exhibition here in St. Petersburg also marks the opening of her studio at The Art Lofts @ Florida CraftArt. An opening reception for the exhibition at ARTicles Art Gallery will be held on April 11th, 6-9pm. Her provocative work will be on view through June 6th. For more information contact the gallery at 727-898-6061.

______________________________________________________________________

              KAIROS
"Time may change me, but I can't trace Time"  --- David Bowie, Changes.


Time runs through our hands, but on our wrists it is kept via a watch on one side, and our beating hearts on the other. Clock time is what Isaac Newton believed existed, and timed everything in the Universe. Both linear and cyclical, the Greeks associated it with the God Kronos. Time, quantitative time, passed consistently, each moment exactly like all others, egalitarian.


Inside the wrist is time kept by our heartbeats. It is pulsating time, much like the oscillations of a particle in an atomic clock, but infinitely slower, and consistently variable with human arousal, emotional    and/or physical state. At times we say it skips a beat, or 'be still, my beating heart'.




  Kairos moments are also not exactly alike. The Greeks had a God for this kind of time: Kairos. Some moments contain less information/significance than others. The Kairos moment is supreme, says more, encapsulates broadly, can tell a long narrative in the same span of time. It is indeterminate and qualitative. More of a lapse in which everything happens.


A temporal context that both calls for and constrains speech or other modes of expression.
Kairos is sacred time, unbound, fluid.


It is a moment, beyond description by number, unlike Chronos.


 Photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson sought the Kairos in his work. Calling it The Decisive Moment, he sought it in the theological meaning, a time when conditions are right for accomplishing a crucial action. The decisive moment. Fitting time. Cartier Bresson thought it was a moment that told an entire story, in one photograph.


, Originally the word had to do with the wound channel from an arrow and the passage of threads of fiber in making cloth.


In Luke 12:54, Jesus uses it to mean "Present Time", time laden with meaning, choice, crisis, possibility, choice and renewal.


To the South Aricans, Kairos meant a time to make choices at a crossroads in history.


It is non-linear, simultaneously in and out of time. Kairos is mythic/sacred time, the realm and trigger that loosen heroes into being, that beckons and encompasses, turning a few seconds into an eternity and viceversa.

This Tell All Weekend, Saturday, APril 4th 2015

XXVII

A black and white photography show - Month of April 2015

Over the years, a large part of my photography has been inspired by performing artists, especially musicians. Living in the Tampa Bay area, the community is lucky to have a lot of great talent locally, as well as a some great venues that draw outside musicians. I have been lucky to be able to follow that scene and somewhat obsessively photograph those moments. This show is a small tribute to a group as a whole who have inspired and moved me.


This show will be up for the whole month of April till May 1st. Please stop by at your convenience and leave your comments here.

Requiem for an artist: Ramona Stazen

At Melrose, in central Florida, preparing a space in a church for a funeral service for an artist. Works were brought in for a requiem show at tomorrow's service which Peter Stazen and I just finished hanging on makeshift walls. I knew this artist well, her name was Ramona Stazen, and she was my wife's mother. She wasn't hip nor famous, idolized Kinkade, earnestly worked hard for decades, selling hundreds of her paintings to people who loved them.
Tomorrow this room will be full of people. Now preparing an art table for children. Long night ahead...
‪#‎arteverywhere‬ ‪#‎hauntedbyart‬ ‪#‎loveart‬ ‪#‎wishyouwerehere‬ ‪#‎thisiswhoweare‬






















RIP Ramona Stazen.

PI Day

"Yes, the time is upon us. Everyone knows pi day is March 14th, but any true nerd realizes pi is not 3.14, but rather an irrational constant which continues infinitely in decimal expansion. Starting at 9:26:53 (.589... sec) AM, the longest extended Pi Day of our lives will come into action. The date, at the AM and PM hours, will be " 3/14/15 at 9:26:53.589. Days like this only come once in a lifetime!

It is understood 1592 was a better year. This was probably the greatest pi day in history. Every 100 years (1915, 2015, 2115 etc) come the next closest pi days. It is also understood there are other minor pi days (be creative). Yes, 22/7 is pi approximation day -- But it's not that accurate! I wrote this just for all you people who like to find missing details written in nerd events. I'm sure you'll still find more ;)

If you're a nerd, you will invite ANY other nerd you know :D

Invite all your friends and let's make this the number one nerd event on facebook ;)

Pi =
4*Sum[(-1)^i/ (2*i+1) ,{i,0, infinity}]
= 4*( 1 - 1/3 + 1/5 - 1/7 + 1/9-...)

This formula can be derived using the Taylor series for arctan via integration, namely arctan[x] = integral[1/(1+t^2),{t,0,x}]
and writing 1/(1+t^2) as a geometric sum with generator -t^2.

**EDIT: Wristbands are no longer being sold due to supply restrictions. If you really want one, check out http://www.gofundme.com/pikid before the end of March!

***[link no longer has active store:***We recently have begun selling some epic wrist bands (like the yellow livestrong ones etc) that have pi day information. "Pi Day 3/14/15 9:26:53..." For more information visit http://thepidayofourlives.homestead.com/

In memory of a dear friend, Jarrod Newton... 3/14 /87 - 08/26/2011

“Learning to Fly” is a metaphor for the artist's recent re-locations throughout the United States. The show hints at the journey that she has been on. Born and raised in Minnesota, Laurie's earlier pottery focused mainly on native plants and the backyard birds that frequented her feeders. Since then she has lived in a beautiful, rural, mountainous area of northwest Georgia and currently resides in St Petersburg, FL close to amazing beaches. “When I first moved here everyone told me that I was going to have to carve fish on my pottery if I hoped to sell anything. So, I've been trying to figure out the intricacies of my new market. What to make, where to sell it, what shows are good and which galleries to approach.”
By stacking various small forms Laurie is able to create larger, quirky, sculptural statements. The artist's garden totems are based on memories of her adventures in nature. The recollection might be running through the planting rows of her grandparent's nursery, hiking in the mountains or shelling on the beach. The majority of her work starts off on the potters wheel. Forms are thrown, altered and painstakingly carved. Surface decoration is an integral part of her work. Glazing takes hours with multiple glazes specifically placed. Each piece beckons to be explored and touched.

St. Petersburg's Second Saturday ArtWalk presents over 30 galleries and studios in the Waterfront Arts, Central Arts District, The EDGE District of St. Petersburg, Grand Central District Association and the Warehouse Arts District coming together as one arts destination.

Be the first to see new affordable works of art, as ArtWalk is Opening Night where many galleries and studios premiere new works. Some are only open on ArtWalk, and many offer demonstrations and refreshments. It’s impossible to take in the entire ArtWalk in one night! Plan to drive, walk, or take the trolleys to visit the districts of your choice.

Our free trolley shuttles will have an art guide on board talking about each venue on our one continuous trolley loop that goes from the 3rd Street and Central Avenue to deep in the heart of the Warehouse Arts District. You can park for free on 1st Ave N and 1st Ave S from 15th St to 30th Street. Additional parking will be available for trolley riders in the vacant lot at the Northeast corner of Central Avenue and 29th Street (Please note that this is NOT one of our trolley stops). In addition, venues with large free parking lots are Soft Water Studios, the Morean Center for Clay at the Train Station, the Clay Center of St. Petersburg, the Florida Holocaust Museum and the Dr. Carter G. Woodson African American Museum.

Duke Energy is our sponsor. The St. Petersburg Arts Alliance, the Arts Association St. Petersburg Inc., the EDGE District, the Grand Central District, and the Warehouse Arts District associations coordinate St. Petersburg’s Second Saturday ArtWalk. The St. Petersburg Arts Alliance strives to be the community voice, the umbrella organization for the arts -- facilitating artists, arts organizations and creative businesses to work collaboratively; empowering the growth of the arts community, and driving arts-related economic development.
