Step into the Airstream to check out art

Photographers Matt and Rebecca Sexton Larson don't stay still for long ever since they launched Boxfoto, a movable concept to create, show and sell their work. The husband and wife roll all over the place in their nifty Airstream, outfitted as a mobile studio and display center for their own work and that of people who enroll in their photography classes. But a collection of their photographs has settled temporarily at the Visual Arts Gallery at Hillsborough Community College's Ybor campus at Palm Avenue and 15th Street, Tampa. They work independently but both specialize in historic photographic processes such as tintype, bromoil and cyanotype. In addition to prints on the gallery walls, a few of the charming pinhole cameras Rebecca Larson makes from almost anything (martini shaker, cigar box, paper cups, for example) will also be on view.

Gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday and Wednesday through Friday, and noon to 7 p.m. Tuesday until Sept. 25. Free. (813) 273-7674.

Meet Matt and Rebecca Sexton Larson and see the Boxfoto Airstream at a free reception Sept. 11 from 4:30 to 8:30 p.m. Artists' talk is 6:15 p.m. and tours of the Boxfotos Airstream begin at 7 p.m.
