The heat has been imposible...mosquitoes now could be carrying West Nile, Dengue, Chikungunya, Malaria etc. Go in the water and you have four times the chance of winning the Lotto of being infected with flesh-eating bacteris...yeah, summer.




 At Workspace, 4501 N. Florida Ave, Tampa.

EPOXY presents Unadorned, a sensible collection of imagery referencing mysticism and dream analysis. We have paired two artists who work similar with materials pen and ink and application using a thin delicate line. Both artists illustrate images that attempt to map mental and spiritual pathways similar to the faces of tarot cards, but both differ with their objective. Featuring JP Marra who works within a simple format appropriating mystic icons to create a ‘tongue-in-cheek’ obsession with a dark-wave culture. Also works by Katie O’Gorman who is sincere using her own dreams dating all the way from her childhood. The memory of her dreams is a rarity due to the attention to detail which translates within the drawings. O’Gormans approach to depicting these illusive scenarios is a way to quantitatively study the meaning of dreams. These drawings are a gateway to self reflection and furthers the conversation of symbolism as a language for the self. Join us in conjunction with First Friday in Seminole Heights, August 1st, 6 - 10 pm.

 Calling all musicians, poets, storytellers and comedians! Please join host/poet Diana Browning and sound guy Moe St. Evergreen for an exciting evening as some of the best talent in Tampa Bay perform at this adults only open mic at Stefani Hope Beddingfield's Inkwood Books. We are one of the most welcoming and encouraging groups around so don't be shy, come on out and show your stuff ! A suggested donation of $5 for beer, wine or other beverages or better yet, buy a book.


Miss Emmy Lou (star of "We Fucking Forgot", "Stone Circles", "Ultraviolence", "Drone Warfare", "The Future Sucks", "Negro y Blanco", and many more) returns to St. Pete for her new solo exhibition, "Figure Man". Miss Emmy Lou helped launch The Venture Compound as one of the most successful independent art galleries, turned herself into a cult star, and set standards of poor taste that few artists have managed to lower. "Figure Man" is likely to provoke concurrent waves of nostalgia and revulsion. Small wonder Newsday described "Figure Man" as going "past angst, past shock, past entertainment...pure pathology." Even Fran Lebowitz, writing in interview called it "one of the sickest art shows ever made...and one of the funniest."
Dubbed "The Pope of Dumpsterpop" by no less than Bradley Kokay, Miss Emmy Lou has earned a few other titles as well: The Princess of Puke, The Baroness of Bad Taste, The Rapscallion of Repulsion, and The Godmother of Gross. If that's not enough, she's giving away a bunch of free stuff! Zines, comic books, buttons, and art. Plus, a limited edition blind assortment collectable figure raffle. Featuring musical performances by Nequam Sonitus, Lovebrrd, Wolf Pussy, Whitey Alabastard, and Smith Lavender, as well as the world premier of "Pony Heaven" a short film by Bradley Kokay. Saturday, August 2nd 8pm The Venture Compound $5

QUAID has been having an amazingly successful 2014 so far and we are starting to plan for the future. We have been operating in the smaller project space at Tempus Projects but Tempus is preparing to fully expand into that part of the building next year. We have been fortunate enough to sell much more work than we expected to in the first half of 2014, but we have been working with a budget of almost zero dollars and we need to raise extra funds to be able to continue through the end of 2015 in a new location.

“Contemporary Issues in Understanding Summer Sales” will be our first fundraising effort. “Contemporary Issues” will be a group show of work from the gallery cooperative members where every piece will be under $100. We aren’t filling the gallery with small, minor, or old works, instead for one night only we will be installing a show of work that would usually be priced much higher than $100.

Every purchase will be a giant step to our continued existence and to a more permanent location. Take advantage of this sale, and be a part of serious, progressive, and fun contemporary art in Tampa!
