Knowing the Difference – Defining Art Events by Tim Jaeger
For the sake of argument, let’s assume that not everyone reading this is a die-hard Gallery Go-er. Perhaps you’d like to see what’s “out there” and I am here to help you figure out what, exactly, it is that those art show terms mean.
USF CAM presents – In Residence
In Residence brings together the work of four Miami-based artists who focus artistic inquiries on the contested space between the natural and the built environment.
Clothesline Presents – Process Obsessed
With the refinement of traditional processes or discovery of new techniques, Process Obsessed explores the methods behind printmaking, prompting the question: what is a print? Although the content of each artist differs, the process and methods unifies these practitioners and is a testament to the constantly varied, yet innovative approach brought into printmaking.

Start the Conversation by Pamela Beck

No Touching! An interview with a Ringling Museum Guard
When you enter a museum, they are lurking in the corners, uniformed, silent, eyes constantly scanning the room. You may never even notice them. It’s possible that museum guards spend more time physically with the artwork than the curators and historians do. I recently had the opportunity to ask a former guard at the Ringling Museum about her experience.
WHAT IS NOT SEEN: An Interview with Chris Jordan
Seattle based artist, Chris Jordan, shows us an arresting view of what Western culture looks like. Best known for his large scale works depicting mass consumption and waste, particularly garbage, he has been called “the ‘it’ artist of the green movement.” His supersized images picture some almost unimaginable statistics — like the astonishing number of paper cups we use every single day.
Connection – 300 Words by Pamela Beck
It seems so simple; we all have feelings about the art we see. Yet comfort with our own reactions to it often seems elusive. It’s replaced with the idea of what we should like and insecurity about looking foolish.
Detailed Information: A group show at Mindy Solomon
This exhibition focuses on a group of artists whose work is minutely crafted to exacting detail, whether through surface completion or the inclusion of intensive narrative content. Implicit to this group of artists is their mastery of technique―whether it is old master, or the application of new technologies, each artist uses their significant knowledge to impart a comprehensive visual story.
A HUNDRED YEARS – A HUNDRED CHAIRS
Masterworks from the Vitra Design Museum provides an opportunity to contemplate the fascinating history of chair design. Assembled from the expansive holdings of one of the world’s foremost design museums, this exhibition allows us to consider the aesthetic, technological and manufacturing concerns expressed through the design of the most ubiquitous of objects, the chair.

Olda Reviews: Tempus for the Spring and Us for Each Other
These days marked by austerity seem to be shifting into days marked by crowd sourcing, a trend to which Tampa Bay has warmed up quickly. Indeed, around here crowd sourced funds appear to nearly outpace great ideas needing a kick-start.
SANFORD BIGGERS: Codex
On view at Ringling Museum – Sanford Biggers uses the study of ethnological objects, popular icons, and the Dadaist tradition to explore cultural and creative syncretism, art history, and politics.
Object Image / Erik Levine / Sculpture and Video
On view at Tampa Museum – This exhibition includes two recent video works, cocker (2010) and post time (2012) that explore his interest in the masculine figures. Levine is less concerned with the actual fight than with the rituals in which these men partake during fight preparation.
