Zoe Golloway Exhibit Hall – Russell Bellamy’s sculpture and wall reliefs deal with ideas of perception and concentration involved in the comprehension of theoretical physics, time travel, and black holes. He uses a variety of materials including steel, polycarbonate, and plexiglass.
Sara May Love Gallery – Artists living in the St Petersburg, Florida, area, Leslie Neumann and Susan Gott both use material and process to influence the color and form of their work. Neumann, working with encaustic (hot wax) and oil paint applies the paint and wax to a surface while hot, and as it congeals she scrapes away colors, engraves words or pictographs, resulting in a rich luminous surface. Gott casts molten glass directly from a furnace burning at 2300 degrees F, and incorporates images, symbols, inclusions and color, inspired by mythological imagery and symbolism.
