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.

Contact Lennie Bennett at lbennett@tampabay.com or (727) 893-8293.

  2. Restaurant review: Features Gastropub in Riverview is fine as movie theater fare, but unimpressive otherwise

    Food & Dining

    Movies aren't exactly dying. Despite all the sturm und drang of predictions that Netflix and streaming videos would kill the cinema, global box office receipts hit $38.6 billion in 2016, a 1 percent gain over the previous year. But that doesn't mean going to the cinema is precisely what it was a generation ago. …

    Cooking

    Deep into a late-night binge of Master of None, Aziz Ansari's Netflix series that returned for its second season May 12, I realized I was laying as far back on my couch as possible, blanket clutched up to my chin, eyebrows permanently raised.

    Now that summer has essentially begun, many of us have probably started scouring our freezers for frozen desserts to top off our suppers. This week, we found four new frozen desserts in local grocery stores to try. Judges raved about a couple, deciding, for the most part, that they prefer ice pops to ice cream. Overall, …
