This Last Lovers on Earth Weekend, May 30th - June 1st.

Friday, May 30th


The American Heart Association and American Stroke Association invite you to attend the first annual Strokes for Stroke (#Strokes4Stroke) Art Show on Friday, May 30!

This powerful fundraiser will showcase artwork created by stroke survivors, as well as raise awareness about stroke -- the No. 4 killer of Americans. There will also be special tribute pieces from individuals whose loved ones have been affected by stroke.

Guests can also enjoy heart-health-healthy hors d'oeuvres, a cash bar, tunes by local reporter and former DJ, Arielle Stevenson, testimonies from local stroke survivors, and more. The program is hosted by the lovely Dion Lim of 10 News!

We're still looking for featured artists! Whether you enjoy painting, sculpting, wood working or needlepoint (to name a few), we'd be honored to have you participate in Strokes for Stroke.

For more information, please call Lily at 678-873-1566 or email her at

Demos Oneiroi is a multimedia installation concerned with the variegated structure of transcendence. Demos Oneiroi takes as its foundation an intractable phenomenological ennui, a self-bored circular hermeneutics and a persistent dryness around the cuticles. Demos Oneiroi is implanted in the dank ground of an unnamed swamp and is passing the time inventing games of self-estrangement to be played out among the strip-malls. Demos Oneiroi is searching for desire in the mire.

Epoxy presents a show that is thematically divided between its interior and exterior spaces. Inside the gallery space proper, Pia Love-Toribio creates a lucid phantasmagoria through which she explores a personal symbology of simple geometric forms. Outside the gallery, Andrea Williams creates an artificial "remoteness" for participating audience members in which she plays with the concept of oracular self-knowledge. The works are united in their attempt to serve as a portal to something beyond the socially-conditioned bounds of experienced reality. Please join us Friday May 30th 2014, between 7pm - 10 pm and also June 6 for the FFSH between 6pm-10 pm.


Marcile Powers is an artist local to the St. Petersburg area who recently had a show in Rome, Italy. She will be showing her work with a live projection of animated art as a follow-up show. Joshua Kreithen will be there playing guitar and possibly an Eastern European folk singer if we're lucky. Please come out to the new authentic Italian Bakery in St. Petersburg to see the work.


The Florida Free Film Fest is a free two week contest in which participants and their teams create a movie of 10 minutes or less about pretty much anything. (See official Rules for more details)
