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.

    Fast Times at Ridgemont High not only is the perfect time capsule of pop culture in the early ‘80s - all it needed was some tasty waves and cool buds = it’s also high art. How so? Leave it to me.

    Blogs

    While the '70s has classic songs about rock 'n' roll on the road like Jackson Browne's The Load-Out and Bob Seger's Turn The Page, the '80s also lamented about the long tours including songs that might have escaped your attention like the Kinks and their travel song simply titled The Road.

  5. Opera legend Sherrill Milnes keeps a quieter profile in Palm Harbor

    News

    TARPON SPRINGS — The soprano sang an aria from The Marriage of Figaro about lost love, but she could have been asking the devil not to steal her soul. A couple dozen opera fans watched, including a silver-haired man with leonine features leaning back in his chair.
