Vision, Power, Axé highlights the nuance and complexity within Afro-Brazilian art from the city of Salvador, capital of the Brazilian state of Bahia and internationally acclaimed center of Afro-Brazilian culture. Contemporary artists J. Cunha, Ayrson Heráclito, Goya Lopes, Ronaldo Martins, Daiane Silva, and Domingos Terciliano Jr. explore Bahia’s complex racial history and rich cultural traditions with artworks intricately interwoven with stories of resilience, activism, and pride. Ranging from paintings, sculptures, prints, and videos, the work presented in Vision, Power, Axé at Gallery221 articulates current sociopolitical issues, expressions of African heritage, the struggle for equality, and the power of self-definition.

HCC Permanent Art Collection


Gallery3 | 3rd Floor DLRC


May 24 – December 14, 2021


From modest beginnings in the late 1970s and early 1980s, HCC’s visual art galleries have brought ambitious and compelling exhibitions to Tampa Bay for over four decades. Over the years, the close connections forged between HCC’s galleries and the arts community resulted in the establishment of a Permanent Art Collection. Today, the Permanent Art Collection has grown to represent a range of artistic perspectives, media, and styles with an emphasis on strong artistic talent from the region. This exhibition represents a selection of those acquisitions curated by the college’s current professional gallery staff.

Artists include: Caitlin Albritton, George Anderton, Bradley Arthur, Nathan Beard, Clyde Butcher, Suzanne Camp Crosby, Lynn Foskett, Mark Thomas Gibson, Andreas Goff, Lazlo Horvath, Bassmi Ibrahim, Aneka Ingold, Eric Joost, Akiko Kotani, Jack Leigh, Steve Locke, Bruce Marsh, Jerry Meatyard, Tracy Midulla, Elizabeth Mitchell, Katherine Moyse, Leslie Neumann, Rose Marie Prins, Omar Richardson, Selina Román, Claudia Ryan, Stephen Schatz, Doug Sutherland, Rachel Stewart, Dorothy Summers, William Villalongo, Chris Wade and Kirk Ke Wang.
