This Pirated Weekend, Jan.24th - 27th

I live two blocks from Bayshore, the Gasparilla parade route. My next-door neighbor is having a beer pong party to commemorate the event. This means I will be fleeing the area for the day. My cat will be totally spooked, needing therapy after listening to gunshots and cannon fire for hours. All of this to commemorate a plundering rapist pirate that never came to Tampa. Let's see what there is to escape to. 


Star Signs @ Blue Lucy - Chad Mize and Phillip Clark bring us twelve artists, each with works based on a Zodiacal sign.
OPENING Saturday, January 26, 2013 6-10PM
Exhibit runs 01.26.13 – 02.16.13
FREE to attend

That's quite a line-up, and if reality lives up to half the FB hype this should be a good show.


Carousel No.1Carousel, @ Creative Loafing Space - A slide show with the works of ten photographers, including James and Julie Branaman, Edward Linsmier, Chip Litherland, Kym O'Donnell Edmund Fountain, Bob Croslin and Chip Litherland. Each will get a 3-5 min. slide show. Remember those? At the Creative Loafing Space, 1911 N. 13th Street in Ybor Square, above the Spaghetti Warehouse. Admission: $3 (suggested). Thursday, January 24th, starts @ 7:00 PM.

(ongoing) Farming, Family, and Folk Art: Ruby C. Williams @ Gallery 221, HCC Dale Mabry - This Central Florida artist has shown at The Smithsonian Anacostia Museum in Washington DC, been awarded a Florida Folk Heritage Award and many other accolades. Her roots go deep in Floridian history and she will be showing a wide variety of work. Gallery 221's director is familiar with Folk art, so this should be good. All at HCC Dale Mabry, 4001 W. Tampa Blvd. Free admission. I have seen this show, will be reviewing it soon, and can recommend it without reservation.
