Barbara Sorensen, “Topographies Installation,” 2007, includes “Boat Installation” in the background (stoneware and stones) and “Foothills Installation” in the foreground (stoneware, video and sound).

The Polk Museum of Art's current show, "Site Specific," features Dan Gunderson and Barbara Sorensen, two Central Florida "environmental" artists, meaning they often create environments within galleries, though visually their work is quite different. Among Gunderson's recent work are kaleidoscopic assemblages of small toys such as one show here. Sorensen takes an earthy, organic approach. See the exhibition at the museum, 800 E Palmetto St., Lakeland, through June 7. Hours are from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and 1 to 5 p.m. Sunday. Admission is $5 adults, $4 seniors and free for children and students with ID. polkmuseumofart.org or (863) 688-7743.

  1. Seasoned cast scores an extra-base hit for St. Petersburg Opera with 'Faust'

    Stage

    TAMPA — Charles Gounod's Faust sets the table early. The world-weary philosopher immortalized in a dramatic poem by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe is in his study, lamenting his state of affairs. He's willing to give away everything he has to be young again, even his soul.
