What do religion, race, sexuality, and personal identity have in common? They're all pointless social constructs that no one does well! And what better way to celebrate our inadequacies than with an art exhibition?! Missy Roll and Allen Leper Hampton explore historical tropes of race and religion as well as harshly confronting our preconceived notions of identity. Strange Fruit does not ask "Are we the sum of our parts?", but rather "WHY are we the sum of our parts?"

Strange Fruit
You are cordially invited to Strange Fruit
An exhibition by Missy Roll & Allen Leper Hampton

Admission is free and will contain subject matter that may be offensive to some viewers. Viewer discretion is advised.

653 Central Avenue, Saint Petersburg, Florida 33701. Saturday, Feb 23 @ 6 PM.

Diane Gugliotta and Mark Mitchell take turns in talking about their works in the two person show : "Fish Out of Water". See how the works were created and what the concepts were that motivated the images. "Talks" last about 40 minutes (20 mins. each artist) and begin at 12 noon, again at 2 and 4PM. Film, music and media demonstrations add "spice" to the talks. Refreshments available.

104B 8th Ave. Pass-A-Grille, Saint Petersburg.

8pm/$10 Tuesday Feb 26th.

(Totally worth it. This is the type of thing that happens at concert hall or a fine arts museum.)
The PANGAEA PROJECT No. 36: Tatsuya Nakatani [PA]
Tatsuya Nakatani is a creative percussionist originally from Osaka, Japan.
He has been residing in the USA since 1994 and is currently based in Easton, PA.Since the late 1990s, Mr. Nakatani has released over sixty recordings in the USA and Europe and has performed countless solo percussion concerts through intensive touring. He has also collaborated with hundreds of other artists internationally and presented masterclasses, workshops and lectures across the USA and around the world.

Nakatani's approach to music is visceral, non-linear and intuitively primitive, expressing an unusually strong spirit while avoiding any categorization. He creates sound via both traditional and extended percussion techniques, utilizing drums, bowed gongs, cymbals, singing bowls, metal objects and bells, as well as various sticks, kitchen tools and homemade bows, all of which manifest in anintense and organic music that represents a very personal sonic world. His approach is steeped in the sensibilities of free improvisation, experimental music, jazz, rock, and noise, and yet retains the sense of space and quiet beauty found in traditional Japanese folk music. His percussion instruments can imitate the sounds of a trumpet, a stringed instrumentor an electronic device to the extent that it becomes difficult to recognize the source of the sound. He has devoted himself to a musical aesthetic where rhythm gives way to pulse, often in a way that is not always audible or visible, in currents that incorporate silence and texture.
