Saturday, July 12th

Carter G Woodson Museum, 2240 9th Ave. South. 6:47 PM



The Warehouse Arts District in collaboration with the Arts Association St. Petersburg Inc., the The EDGE District of St. Petersburg, the Central Arts District, the Grand Central District Association, the Waterfront District and the St. Petersburg Arts Alliance invite you to the St. Pete Second Saturday ArtWalk, FULL MOON Edition, on July 12, 2014 from 5-9 p.m.

During our moonlight Opening Night you can ride either the red trolley or the white coach bus as they take you on a tour of over 30 warehouses, galleries and studios that are staying open late just for you!

The two trolley shuttles will have art guides on board talking about each venue on our one continuous trolley loop that goes from the roundabout at 10th Street and Central Avenue to deep in the heart of the Warehouse Arts District. You can also use The Central Avenue Trolley ($.50) to reach galleries and shops on Central Avenue to Beach Drive.

The studios and galleries provide an informal, engaging social evening to drop in and meet our community's artists. Many will have demonstrations and refreshments. Be the first to see new affordable works of fine, glass, and clay art!

Handmade, one of a kind, unique, local art make excellent gifts! Ride the trolley to these venues or print the map and drive yourself. Browse, watch and purchase “Where Art is Made”!

The FULL MOON ArtWalk trolley is sponsored by Duke Energy, Courtyard by Marriott, The Downtown Partnership, The Orsini & Rose Law Firm, The St. Petersburg Arts Alliance and The Studio@620.

Ryann Slauson
If You’re Not Getting Better, You’re Getting Worse
July 12 – August 2
Opening Reception: Saturday, July 12, 7 – 10pm
Tempus Projects, Tampa, FL

In a carefully crafted combination of nostalgia and disappointment, If You’re Not Getting Better, You’re Getting Worse presents viewers with a collection of recent works by Ryann Slauson. Suggesting elliptical and melancholy narratives pulled from memories, family mythologies, and scraps of popular culture’s iconography, Slauson engages with different materials to create objects, paintings, and prints. Her objects, hand-crafted from plaster, paper, cardboard, fabric, and papier mache, look like common things in the world – discarded cough drop wrappers, pizza boxes, work uniforms. Close inspection reveal these pieces as sloppy simulacra, depicting a larger cultural history skewed through her personal history. Acrylic paintings on Plexiglas reference painted window signs and advertising, as well as digital screens and internet-sourced imagery.
If You’re Not Getting Better, You’re Getting Worse is Ryann Slauson’s second solo show at Tempus Projects.
