Opening Reception: Friday | October 6th | 6:00 - 9:00PM

CONSTRUCT is an innovative traveling exhibit that evolves over time including artists working in the community into which it enters, responding flexibility to the dimensions of the exhibition space and presenting new work by its core artists at each location. Rather than displaying the same works by the same artists, CONSTRUCT is bound only by the very general notion of "building" and artists are invited based upon how compellingly their work speaks to the architecture of life.

Building our world is a complicated affair involving thousands of years of accumulated experience and knowledge. This exhibit aims to showcase the ways in which 18 different artists from the Greater Tampa Bay region find meaning in the architecture of nature, memory, place and society. As Florida's West Coast continues to grow rapidly, there is a need for strengthened connections across our waterways. This exhibit intends to tie into a broader movement towards collaboration between regional art communities by fostering reflection about where we've been and conversation about where we will head.

 

Artists hail from Bradenton, Dunedin, Palmetto, Sarasota, St. Petersburg and Tampa. They include Caitlin Albritton, Catherine Bergmann, Marianne Chapel, Robin Perry Dana, Janos Enyedi, Carol Hill, Bryce Hudson, Kenny Jensen, Jack King, John Kokajko, Nin McQuillen, Chad Mize, Laine Nixon, Joan Peters, Meg Pierce, Jan Richardson, Nathan Skiles, and Christopher Wade.

CONSTRUCT is open to the public with no admission fee. Following the opening reception, the Palmetto Art Center gallery will be open Saturday, October 7th from 11:00AM – 1:00PM and Saturday, October 21st from 11:00AM - 1:00PM Also, Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays, Noon – 2PM, and by appointment.
