Rusty Epiphanies: Darke Ruminations @ Eve N Odd Gallery - John Donald Carlucci exhibits images from his dark side. Saturday, Mar. 9th, 6-10 PM. Free. In the Crislip Arcade on the 600 Block of Central Ave. St. Pete.


Contain It! Installations in PODs containers by several artists. I assisted in hanging one of these yesterday, and can recommend this without reservation. Forget Disney, Sea and Florida World, come and see Jennifer Kosharek's "Gretchen's World". I will personally be out there between 10 AM and 2 PM Saturday. 


Chihuly is in the Burg!

The Morean Arts Center is happy to announce Dale Chihuly's return to St. Petersburg and the arrival of a temporary new installation to the already phenomenal collection of Chihuly masterpieces.
The Sealife Stoppers will be on view March 8 through June 30, 2013 at the Chihuly Collection. The series grew out of Chihuly's collaboration with Italian master Pino Signoretto and employs Venetian sculptural techniques to emulate incredible sea creatures.

Thank you to the VInoy Renaissance Resort & Golf Club for providing such a beautiful setting for these wonderful events.
