For our upcoming September 22nd art reception, we’ll be showcasing a collection
from the Florida Museum of Photographic Arts: Photographing Modernism. This series features intriguing architectural photography, some of them even taken around the Tampa Bay area. All of the photographs in this collection were submitted and exhibited in the American Institute of Architects show that took place in April 2015. The perspectives featured in this series are often abstract in nature, and provide intriguing interpretations of gorgeous architecture worldwide. These were showcased at the same time the FMoPA had it’s Ezra Stoller exhibit on, and definitely follows in the same vein of this highly influential photographer.
The photo exhibit will remain in place all of September and October, with the gallery reception on the Fourth Friday of September only, although the gallery is open to the public Tuesday through Friday 2-6pm, around events and other space reservations.
Our Fourth Friday receptions are truly not to be missed, with downtown Tampa and Ybor bustling with activity as galleries open their doors to the public and restaurants offer great deals on food and drinks all night! If you have a sip & stroll cup and a wristband, you can even take your beverages to go as you go along the Riverwalk. Be sure to use the streetcar after imbibing however, luckily it’s as easy as possible to get around without a car via streetcar services that are offered for free on Fourth Fridays! The downtowner also has free ride services available, which makes checking out the local music scene easier than ever.
