Rocky Bridges is essentially a sculptor, creating framed assemblages from found objects that are both lyrical and edgy. In a new collection, he dispenses with the wall and makes them freestanding. Shown is The Space Between Lovers 2. See them at Michele Tuegel Contemporary Art, 320 Central Ave., St. Petersburg, through Aug. 29. Gallery hours are 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.
