We have dates for the Shine Mural Festival, and more art to explore

 

Save the Date: Shine Mural Festival

More walls in St. Petersburg will be colorful come fall, when the Shine Mural Festival returns. For the past two years the festival has taken place in September, but organizers recently announced that 2017's festival is planned for Oct. 5-14. The confirmed roster of artists this year includes Hueman (Los Angeles), Waone (Ukraine) and Alex Yanes (Miami). There will also be a locals-only wall, for which an open call goes out soon. Group gallery exhibitions, bicycle tours and community projects will fill out the festivities. Keep in the loop at shineonstpete.com.

They Belong: Member shows

Saturday is St. Petersburg's art walk, and among the cool artwork to see, [email protected] and the Morean Arts Center are showcasing work from members. Those shows are always fun to check out, because the work is always so varied.

The [email protected] show features work from two dozen members, including Neverne Covington, Khalid Hameed and Patton Hunter, whose work is pictured. There's a wide range of media here, including assemblage and video. Opening reception is 5-9 p.m. at 620 First Ave. S.

The Morean Arts Center is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year, and this will be the 99th members' show. That's pretty special, and the show this year features more than 200 artists. While you're there, welcome the Morean Arts Center's new CEO/executive director Michael Killoren, who will be there greeting guests. Opening reception is 5-9 p.m. at 719 Central Ave.

Beat the Heat: Hot Summer Show II

Visiting an art gallery is one of my favorite ways to escape the inferno that is summer in Florida. I plan on taking refuge at Clayton Galleries in Tampa, with a great summer exhibition of new work from the gallery's artists. The show includes paintings, mixed media works on paper, photography and sculpture. Bruce Marsh, Carl Knickerbocker and Dolores Coe, whose painting is pictured, are on the impressive list of participating artists. 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Tuesday-Friday and 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday. 4105 S MacDill Ave. claytongalleries.net.

Next time you're in Tampa International Airport's Airside F, look up. You'll see Tendril, an installation piece that's part of the airport's public art program. The innovative piece by Daniel Canogar is a hanging sculpture made of ribbon-shaped metal strips and LED screens, which display time-lapse video animations of native flora growing. The piece curls around the trusses of the ceiling, evoking vines creeping up a trellis. Mesmerizing.
