C. Emerson Fine Arts' "Film Lingual II" is an exploration of photography, video and hybrids of the two mediums. In many instances, the medium becomes an unexpected vehicle in delivering the message, as in Nancy Cervenka's sculptural use of 35mm film material (above) or Rebecca Sexton Larson's pinhole photographs (left), which are more paintings than prints. Both remind us that photographic manipulation was an aesthetic issue long before it became a technical term. Other artists are Carolina Cleere, M.K. Foltz, Corey George, Tim Kennedy, Matt Larson, Matthew Lindhardt, Austin Nelson, Dana Plays, Beth Reynolds, Margaret Steward and Joe Walles. The gallery is at 909 Central Ave., St. Petersburg. Hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. (727) 898-6068; c-emersonfinearts.com.
