This End of the World Weekend, August 22nd-25th, 2013

I am loving the weather this summer. The late afternoon storms have been magnificently ominous, with near-black skies, lightning and thunder to match and more. I love walking around an incoming storm. No chasing required, they come right to you like hungry (rabid, sabertooth) kittens. This weekend things -perk up.

 First Show @ Mohawk House -

1227 East Mohawk Avenue Tampa, FL
1227 East Mohawk Avenue Tampa, FL


Saturday, August 23rd 2013

(Ongoing)...Flora and Fauna @ eve N odd Gallery - This show is still open, and doubtlessly one of the best this weekend. Hugo Porcaro Folk Art and a truly rare and unique mail art show themed around Frank Zappa which should be pored over carefully, since mail artists of this caliber are never seen in this area outside Jennifer Kosharek's wonderful gallery. At 645 Central Ave. Hours normally run 10AM to 6 PM. I believe they may be open until 10 on Saturday.

Sorry We're Closed @ Saint Paint - For someone afraid of having to move, the smart ass title of this show pushes the issue closer to the edge. Join us on Saturday August 24th for the best (and possible final) exhibition yet at Saint Paint! We will be showcasing new work from your favorite downtown artists doing what they do best. This is in celebration of being open over a year at the bigger location (with hopes of many more)! We have had some local political issues that may result in us having to move, so this COULD be the very last show at the original Saint Paint. HOWEVER, we are doing everything we can to make sure this does not happen! So come out, buy some art and do your part in supporting your local creators! ALL DAY LONG! (Don't forget to check out BLUE LUCY'S event ART DEAL WITH IT same night!)

Over 130 pieces are available, including sculptures from Peter Voulkos, paintings by Robert Hodgell, and mixed media works by Rocky Bridges.

Wine and appetizers will be available, and the bidding starts promptly at 6pm. Ends @ 9:00 PM. Don’t miss this opportunity to own a piece from this unique estate!

Venture Compound: Free Film Fest - Unlike other SP film festivals, dripping with bogus pomp and no circumstance, this one has no pretense, and no red carpet. Today we'll be screening the films selected in our film Contest, launching August 4th. We're also accepting submissions for other films, preferably things under or around ten minutes, though we're certainly open to making exceptions! We're looking for your weirdest, most abstract, silly, unnerving, challenging, shoddy work. MAKE IT VENTURE! Opens Saturday, Aug 23rd @ 8:00 PM.

This event is being generously sponsored by entertainment lawyer Scott Orsini:
