At Clayton Galleries, 29 artists show works in smaller formats

Published Oct. 31, 2012

Clayton Galleries, 4105 S MacDill Ave., Tampa, is not a large space. But its new exhibition is a big one, featuring 29 artists. That's because they're all smaller format, none measuring more than 24 by 24 inches. Which means there will always be wall room for any you might buy. You'll have many choices.

The artists are part of the usual high-quality lineup: David Adix, Donne Bitner, Peter Brown, Jeanne Cameron, Robin Cody, Delores Coe, Lynn Davison, Virginia Derryberry, Benjamin Dimmitt, Beth Ford, Billie Hightower, Cassandra James, Lennie Kesl, Carl Knickerbocker, Jeffrey Kronsnoble, Peter Kuentzel, Karen Tucker Kuykendall, Lynn Manos, Bruce Marsh, Kate Norris, Yoko Nogami, George Pappas, Stacy Rosende, Craig Rubadoux, Claudia Ryan, Roberta Schofield, Joyce Ely-Walker, Linda Wesner and Kathy Wright.

They mostly live and work in the Tampa Bay region and the variety of styles and sensibilities they offer collectively is remarkable. Even if you're not in the market for new art, visit the gallery (gallery owners are always really nice) to see and learn something new. A free reception is Friday from 7 to 9 p.m. Hours are Tuesday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. claytongalleries.net or (813) 831-3753.
