THREE new shows opening at the Morean on March 12th!!

Exquisite Porch

A swampy, creepy-crawly spin on the Surrealist parlor game Exquisite Corpse, this exhibition focuses on the ground-dwelling wildlife of Florida. Artist, writer and independent curator D. Dominick Lombardi selected artists from the New York City area, while the Morean selected artists from Central Florida to play by creating drawings which reference things that go bump in the night. The resulting work raises awareness of the history of the game, its relevance to contemporary art, and celebrates the fauna of the Sunshine State.

Jody Fausett: Crush Velvet

Atlanta-based photographer Fausett’s work deals with human vulnerability, the self-construction of facades, the rites of ownership, and the creation of personal icons that represent who and what we are. His ideas are a collision of interests: the encounters he depicts unfold quietly and are laced with the fantastic, a kind of fantastic that deals with personal identity and that overcomes struggle. Fausett is represented by Jackson Fine Art in Atlanta.

PCCA Senior Thesis Exhibition


See works from emerging artists Mallory Lundquist, Indigo Naar and Moses Jeune, all seniors in the Pinellas County Center for the Arts at Gibbs High School.

St. Petersburg's Second Saturday ArtWalk presents over 40 galleries and studios in the Waterfront Arts, Central Arts District, The EDGE District of St. Petersburg, Grand Central District Association and the Warehouse Arts District coming together as one arts destination.

Be the first to see new affordable works of art, as ArtWalk is Opening Night where many galleries and studios premiere new works. Some are only open on ArtWalk, and many offer demonstrations and refreshments. It’s impossible to take in the entire ArtWalk in one night! Plan to drive, walk, or take the trolleys to visit the districts of your choice.

Our free trolley shuttles will have an art guide on board talking about each venue on our one continuous trolley loop. You can park for free on 1st Ave N and 1st Ave S from 15th St to 30th Street. Additional parking will be available for trolley riders in the vacant lot at the Northeast corner of Central Avenue and 29th Street (Please note that this is NOT one of our trolley stops). In addition, venues with large free parking lots are Soft Water Studios, the Morean Center for Clay at the Train Station, the Clay Center of St. Petersburg, and the Dr. Carter G. Woodson African American Museum.

The St. Petersburg Arts Alliance, the Arts Association St. Petersburg Inc., the EDGE District, the Grand Central District, and the Warehouse Arts District associations coordinate St. Petersburg’s Second Saturday ArtWalk. The St. Petersburg Arts Alliance strives to be the community voice, the umbrella organization for the arts -- facilitating artists, arts organizations and creative businesses to work collaboratively; empowering the growth of the arts community, and driving arts-related economic development.

The Leslie Curran Gallery premieres a new series of paintings by Jules Cozine inspired by the extraordinary experience of seeing a massive flock of starlings twisting and turning in unison, known as a murmuration. In an instant, thousands of individual birds commit to a moment of beauty that appears both melodic and mathematical.

With her signature ethereal color palette and post-modern compositions, Cozine creates indefinable shapes, like dappled light through the trees. A fractured vision, her soft edges and subtle hues suggest scenes in motion.

Cozine has consistently invested in artistic and educational causes through her association with charitable organizations. Her work is thematically marked by profound dedication to environmental issues. Making this the subject matter of her painting enables Jules to present an enthusiastic celebration of nature.

Cozine's expression of dedication through her artwork and her continued advocacy belies a deep commitment to environmental issues and the beauty of nature. In observance of this pledge, the artist is donating a portion of the proceeds from this event to the TAMPA BAY WATCH, a nonprofit organization dedicated to the protection and restoration of the Tampa Bay estuary through scientific and educational programs.

Cozine earned B.A. and B.F.A. degrees from the University of Georgia and an M.F.A. from Georgia State University. She held teaching positions at the University of Georgia, Savannah College of Art, Atlanta College of Art, and Georgia State University while maintaining a rigorous exhibition schedule and building a family before moving to St. Petersburg. Her extensive exhibition record includes multiple solo shows and dozens of group exhibitions. She has traveled widely and lived abroad (including Italy, Japan, France and England), and her family has hosted guest students for the Takamatsu, Japan Student Exchange program for the last four years.

MURMURATIONS opens on the evening of March 12th, 6-9 pm and continues through April 2nd, 2016.
