Can't have wasted that digital energy, nor the fact that I enjoyed them enough to stop and click.
These are more from the NCECA shows around Tampa and St. Petersburg last week.
near the New Tampa Museum of Art
A view across the Hillsborough River to the minarets of the University of Tampa.
Of the three closest towers, the building to middle left is one I worked on when I was an Architectural Interior Designer with Watson Co. in the 70's. It used to be the tallest building, and at that time was The First Financial Tower. It seems to change its name every time I come visit. (Just thought I'd add my share of trivia)
The next clay pieces are part of an Internation Exhibit
This was my favorite piece at the Tampa Museum. above
This amazing piece was taller than I was. above
This piece really reminded me of Erin Campbell's sculpture, though this one was covered with something like wallpaper...I kid you not, flocking was one of the media. above
This is one of the pieces that made me scratch my head...it's several feet across, sitting upon the floor...I had trouble understanding this as art...though it is pretty!
Sam, Tai and Marty enjoy the shady brunch area outside the museum.
And a lot of the display space was given to ancient pottery as well as the newer pieces...above
There was also a beautiful collection of Degas bronze statues, but we weren't allowed to take pictures of that exhibit. above
Tomorrow I'll post my last pictures of St. Petersburg pottery/sculptures, from the Morean Gallery of the Train Station, which everyone still calls St. Pete Clay Company.
