Saint Paint One Year Anniversary Show - It seems like five years, but Saint Paint is cenebrating its one year anniversary with a show and blow out party. The brainchild of Derek Donnelly, this space is much more than a gallery showing edgy work from St Pete's outlier artists, but it is also a social hub and a place to find encouragement and friendly faces.  Saturday, April 6th, at 6 6th St. N St Pete.

    "The Symbol of all Art is the Prism. The goal is destructive. To break up the white light of objective realism into the secret glories it contains." - E.E. Cummings

    The Mindy Solomon Gallery is proud to present the work of New York based artist Sylvia Hommert. Born in 1967 and educated at the famous Otis Parsons School of Art in Los Angeles, California, her background as a successful textile artist and designer led her to explore abstraction and the use of color and light in painting as another form of textural experimentation. Pushing the possibilities of pigment and surface with an almost alchemistic precision, Hommert creates colorful surfaces that project prismatic color and pattern.

    Gallery Location: 124 2nd Ave. NE. St. Petersburg, FL 33701
    Gallery Hours: Wednesday-Saturday, 11am-5pm

The Venture Compound is excited to announce the return of Tampa Bay’s premier avant-garde, multi-genre mashup. In the tradition of the legendary Happenings of Andy Warhol’s Factory, Parallels is a collaborative, improvised stew of words, music, and live projection. Some of Tampa Bay’s most adventurous narrators will read to the accompaniment of a 15-piece rotating ensemble of Venture-approved abstract improvisers, brought together to form the Pangaea Tectonic Shift Improvising Orchestra. Behind all of this, the Venture Compound’s team of video archivists and dyed-oil projectionists will treat your head to a cocktail of old and new light patterns.

The layer cake of ideas and sine waves is guaranteed to be as crunchy as a frog.

Readers include:

Cole Bellamy, Author of The Mermaid Postcard (Yellowjacket Press), of which George Shricker of the US Review of Books said, “these poems surge dark waters—evoking sorrows as deep as the sea.”

Bradley Morewood, whose work has appeared in Wild River Review.

Wayne S. Williams, author of collection “The Trunk.”

Lynze Poet

Kristyan Panzica, author of chapbook "A Heritage."

David Z. Morris, Venture Compound writer-not-in-residence and Minister of Disinformation, whose mad ranting has appeared in Subverts Unite!, Steampunk Magazine, and Wag’s Revue.

The Pangaea Tectonic Shift Improvising Orchestra will be conducted by Jesse Thelonious Vance (DC9V), and feature (among many others) Kersey Williams, Sarah Capps, John Freda (Just Satellites), Chris Costabile (River Guard), and Nathan Corder (Monthmind).
