'Game On' at Bluelucy

Playful and provocative are the bywords for a new exhibition at Bluelucy, 653 Central Ave., St. Petersburg. "Game On" is a group show inspired by arcade, pinball and board games that opens with a free reception from 6 to 10 p.m. Saturday.

Chad Mize, whose work is shown, and Phillip Clark are graphic designers and pop artists who use their work space for gallery shows, and this one is big with more than 30 individual artists and collectives participating: Johannah O'Donnell, Andrew Johnson, Adam T, Adriaan Mol, Dan Lasata, CyberCraft Robots, Theresa Crout, Daniel Mrgan, Lauren Rasch, Rasta, Joanna Ledingham, Roman Black, Aurailieus, Sue Woodall, John Hutcherson, Dylan Marvin, Coralette Damme, Phillip Clark, RJ Runas, W Herb Clark, Jenipher Chandley, Jennifer Kosharek, Jason Ault, Samuel South, Kristi Capone, Adam Graham, Erin Mallory, Chad Mize, Jesse Kiebzak, Koofboy Designs, and 8BIT.

Bluelucy is one of the anchor businesses in the cool, neo-bohemian stretch of Central Avenue that has been transformed from moribund to vibrant with the influx of creative people. It feels like a small, self-sufficient village within the larger city. Regular hours at the gallery are 4 to 8 p.m. on Friday and noon to 6 p.m. Saturday. bluelucy.com.
