Morean Arts Center exhibits explore print-making

Prints offer the most variety of any art medium. So many techniques, so much room for experimentation. The wide definition of a fine print was eloquently stated in the recent exhibition celebrating Graphicstudio's creativity at the Tampa Museum of Art, which I hope you saw.

You have another opportunity to explore printmaking's elasticity at three exhibitions at the Morean Arts Center in St. Petersburg. "Body of Proofs: 20 Years of Collaboration" explores the career of Christopher T. Creyts, a printer with serious credentials (including Graphicstudio) who has worked with art stars like Alex Katz, James Rosenquist, Matthew Day Jackson, David Salle, Gary Hume and Frank Stella.

Creyts also serves as juror of "Bite, Scratch & Expose: New Printmaking," a survey of 27 artists from 16 states who are taking the medium in ever-more innovative directions.

"From the Classroom to the Studio" spotlights the works of artists who teach printmaking at area colleges and universities: Erika Greenberg-Schneider, Marjorie Greene, Ina Kaur, Patrick Lindhardt, Tracy Midulla Reller, Bradlee Shanks and Cat Thompson.

The shows continue through June 29 at the Morean Arts Center, 719 Central Ave. Hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday and noon to 5 p.m. Sunday. Free admission. or (727) 822-7872.

    He was so cute: Blond hair, blue eyes and a killer smile. He was dressed in a black robe with a fake scar on his forehead and regaling our fifth-grade class with his book report on Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. As a 10-year-old with only the most sophisticated of tastes (give me a Baby-Sitters Club any day), …

    Food & Dining


    Feather Sound's Tru Lounge, which was Flo Lounge before that, morphed into Grand Siam in 2012, a giant Thai restaurant owned by the folks who had Ban Thai restaurants in Tampa, Clearwater, Brandon and Lakeland.
