USF Student Exhibition Comes to Venus Gallery in St. Pete
St. Petersburg, FL—A new group exhibition opening Nov. 22 at Venus features works by the students of USF Tampa’s REAL WORLD class, which teaches undergraduates to identify diverse opportunities and begin sustaining their creative careers.
“Decanting: The Process of Transference” serves as a metaphor for improvement, as these students move into a new vessel, leaving another behind. A group of 29 artists will present work in a range of media, including video, printmaking, photography, painting, and sculpture in this pop-up exhibition.
Under the guidance of instructor Jay Giroux, they are exploring methods to engage entrepreneurship as an extension of their creative practice, as they move into the professional realm.
The opening reception of “Decanting” on Friday, Nov. 22 from 6 to 10 p.m. includes a panel discussion with Giroux, students, and special guests at 7:30 p.m., exploring ways to apply creativity and thrive as an artist in real-world practice. The exhibition runs through Nov. 30.
Participating artists include Celina Alvarez, Sofia Arvanitopoulos, Sydney Kaye, Andrew Exposito, Leo Fowler, Maria Garcell, Lilith Graham, Yari Gonzalez, Cypher, Willowann Heatherly, Darya Herman, Bri Hickson, Dalton Howard, Cassie Jacobsen, Jean Jensen, Navya Johri, Gavin Jones, Mel Martinez, Samuel McCormick, Sean McGuirk, Kevin Monk, Earl Moore, Thomas Reynolds, Ariana Rodriguez, Jessie Saldivar, Emmanuel Vargas, K.
