Art Planner: See new St. Petersburg SHINE murals on a bike tour, Family Day at TMA

 

BYOB(IKE): TOUR DE SHINE ROLLS OUT

 

Combine your weekend bike ride with an art tour on Sunday's Tour de SHINE. Two bike tours, with guides, begin at St. Pete Bike Co-op, 559 Mirror Lake Drive N, and cycle around to see the murals created during the recent SHINE Mural Festival. One departs at 10 a.m. and the second at noon. Along for the ride will be some of the artists who created the murals to talk about them. An after-party at the Amsterdam, 1049 Central Ave., St. Petersburg, has music drink specials and giveaways. The $10 per rider donation benefits next year's SHINE Mural Festival. Limited to 80 rides per tour. For information and to order tickets, go to shineonstpete.com.

If you aren't a confident cyclist, consider a walking tour of murals along a few blocks of Central Avenue organized by Florida CraftArt, 719 Central Ave., St. Petersburg, every Saturday. It doesn't cover all the new ones, which range farther, but you'll see a rich inventory of wall works with a guide who provides great anecdotal information about them. The tour is from 10 to 11:30 a.m. Tickets are $19 adults, $11 for children ages 6-18, and free for children younger than 5. Reservations are required. Call (727) 821-7391 for information.

AT HCC: MEET THE MAN WHO MET THE GODS

 

Gallery 221 on the Hillsborough Community College Dale Mabry Campus features works by Cuban artist Rolando Vázquez Hernández in a new show "The Man Who Met the Gods." It includes prints, ceramics, sculptures and works on canvas that convey his interest in spirituality and the influence of religion in Cuban art. Vázquez Hernández lives and teaches in Cuba but he'll be at the gallery today from 5 to 7 p.m. for an artist's reception. The exhibition continues through Dec. 10. Hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Wednesday, 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday, and 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday. Free. See hccfl.edu/gallery221 for directions to the gallery on the campus at 4001 W Tampa Blvd., Tampa. (813) 253-7386.

 

ARTICLES GALLERY: SEA MEETS SKY

 

Landscape forms in different media inhabit the Leslie Curran Gallery, 1445 Central Ave., near Curran's original ARTicles gallery. This one is a labor of love for her, functioning solely as an exhibition space instead of sharing quarters with her framing business. Leslie Neumann's soulful encaustic paintings join David Erdman's sculptures made from scavenged forest wood. "Where the Sea Meets the Sky" continues through Dec. 5. articlesstpete.com. (727) 898-6061.
