Gallery art nurtures both established and emerging artists working in all media, be they local, national, international, or intergalactic. Current exhibits include the recent works of George Anderton and an opening reception for Robb Fladry. Upcoming events will feature opening receptions for a variety of artists, as well as the final entry in the Sleep of Reason cinema series, which showcases some of the most transgressive art-house and grind-house films of the ’60s and ’70s.
You’ll have plenty of time to enjoy these and other future exhibits; your Groupon won’t expire for two years.
Though local contemporary art lovers have yet to fill the Internet with abstract reviews of Gallery art, Creative Loafing magazine applauded the gallery’s past exhibit Five + 5, while its readers voted it 2009’s Best Art Gallery: > * The West Tampa exhibition space—synonymous with the quintet of artists who run it—has been a little engine that could for the past three years, ever growing bigger, better and more formidable as a player in Tampa Bay’s fledgling contemporary art scene…The group’s new space, a crisply professional white box, raises the bar for visual art venues in the Bay area and widens the net of artists who may want to show work there…Five + 5 adds up to more than the sum of its parts. – Megan Voeller, Creative Loafing
