Color, Shape and Form. Come to Caroline Karp Babis Creations
show to see her original paintings, inspired by the flowing movements
reminiscent of Van Gogh and her love of nature. Her style reflects
nothing more than the soft flowing of the river, or the eddies of a
summer breeze that rustle the field of wildflowers. In her art one can
find serenity and peace that defies description. May 16, 6-9.
TEMPUS PROJECTS presents SUPERSUBSURFACE recent works from Janine Awai
TEMPUS PROJECTS hosts their first exhibition of the summer
SUPERSUBSURFACE recent works from Janine Awai. Janine Awai uses subtle
combinations of imagery, texture, and materials, investigating the
spaces between human perception and the natural environment. Awai draws
inspiration from natural phenomena such as geometric repetitions,
textural landscapes, and fractal imagery on both micro and macro scales.
Beyond formal observations, she incorporates elements of time,
distance, and memory to establish a connections between the sensory and
rational experience. Her compositions are a mixture of two and three
dimensional media that incorporate the
illustrative quality of line and the topographic impact of form and
relief. Awai approaches each piece as an investigative process that
mimics and explores the fragility and complexity of organic systems, and
our relationship to them.
This exhibition is scheduled to
open Saturday, May 16th and run through Friday, June 26th. Tempus
Projects will host an opening reception on May 16th from 7-10pm at
Tempus Projects, located at 4636 N. Florida Ave. Tampa, FL 33603.
This event is sponsored in part by The Mermaid Tavern, where there will be an after party directly following the reception.
Established in 2009, TEMPUS PROJECTS is a non-profit arts organization
run by a volunteer board of artist and arts professionals and operates
thanks to the generosity of local sponsors, members, and donations from
the general public. Dedicated to nurturing established and emerging
local, national and international artists through exhibitions and
events, the project promotes artists working in all media and
originates, organizes and hosts exhibitions that engage the Tampa Bay
community through the visual arts.
In October of 2014, TEMPUS
PROJECTS received official designation as a Federal 501(c)3 non-profit
arts organization. The non-profit designation was immediately followed
by a grant to support the 2015 exhibition programing by the Gobioff
Foundation. The Gobioff Foundation is a private family foundation which
works to support human rights organizations, education, and the Tampa,
Florida arts community. This is the largest single donation TEMPUS
Projects has received to date.
TEMPUS PROJECTS is highly
regarded as cultural catalyst and a neighborhood touchstone. It has
contributed greatly to the district’s emergence as a unique and creative
local destination. In acknowledgment of its contributions to the arts
and the community, Tampa’s Creative Loafing awarded TEMPUS Projects the
"Best Alternative Art Space" Loafie award for four consecutive years.
TEMPUS Projects has worked in collaboration with Experimental Skeleton,
Silver Meteor Gallery, Tampa’s Downtown Partnership, Blue Bird Books and
