GALLERY ONE
SEA-CHANGE
Tom Stephens

 

Sea-Change, features large-scale, abstract paintings influenced by Florida’s coastal environment by Sarasota-based artist Tom Stephens. Through their fusion of tangled underbrush and dense artistic mark-making, Stephens’ paintings are anchored between expressionism’s visceral, roiling brushwork and a romanticist’s passion for the awe-inspiring flora and fauna of Florida’s coastal environments. Caught within this dialectic, “Sea-Change” exemplifies an artist captivated by the competing passions of an intense, unwavering focus and an innate drive to push away from comfort zones and into the terra-incognita. The Florida native says his work is influenced by vivid memories of places visited along the Florida coastal environment. For more information, visit www.tomstephenspaintings.com

CRACKER POLITICS: THE LIMITS OF COLONIAL KNOWLEDGE

Micheal Adno

For the past year, Adno explored secret fraternal organizations that have existed in Florida since the mid-19th century, discovering the “inextricable but hidden ties between the Ku Klux Klan, local politics, and other clandestine white supremacist organizations.” His project-based photography installation comprises more than 50 photographic prints that attempt to shed light on the contemporary manifestations of these groups, their histories, and their increasingly problematic presence in politics, law enforcement, and everyday life.
