Outgoing exhibit makes way for new at Tampa Museum of Art

Keith Edmier’s Fireweed, 2002-03.


Keith Edmier’s Fireweed, 2002-03.

"Graphicstudio: Uncommon Practice" is in its final days, closing Sunday at the Tampa Museum of Art, 120 Gasparilla Plaza. It's your last chance for a long while to appreciate the enormous and varied output of the famed University of South Florida printmaking (and more) studio that has collaborated with famous and emerging artists for almost 50 years. Shown is Keith Edmier's sculpture, Fireweed.

Plan a return visit to the museum when "My Generation: Young Chinese Artists" arrives beginning June 7 and continuing through Sept. 28. This pioneering show, the first of its kind in the United States, is so big that TMA and the Museum of Fine Arts, St. Petersburg are sharing it. It features artists born after 1976 as China's Cultural Revolution was near its end and their work, created in an environment more open to Western influence, is profoundly different from previous generations' art.

And come again for marvelous antiquities in "Poseidon and the Sea," another landmark exhibition originating at the Tampa Museum, which opens on June 14. For hours and admission, go to or call (813) 274-8130. (It's free on Sunday for Art Museum Day.)
