Even in his frenetic years as a top fashion designer running up frocks for pals such as Elizabeth Taylor, Michael Vollbracht remained an artist. He's retired from fashion (for now) and spends more time creating his paintings and collages. See them at Baisden Gallery, 442 Grand Central Ave., Tampa, through June 22 (and near Mise en Place and the Oxford Exchange so plan a visit around lunch). Ten percent of sales will be donated to St. Joseph's Children's Hospital Foundation. Hours are noon to 3 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. Free. (813) 250 1511.
