EXHIBITION DESCRIPTION

Gallery221 is proud to present REVERBERATIONS: Black Artists on Racism and Resilience. Initiated by The Woodson African American Museum of Florida, REVERBERATIONS is a traveling exhibition that shares artwork from emerging and established Black artists who live and work in Tampa Bay and across the Southeastern United States. Through each artist’s own perspective, this exhibition will challenge viewers with stories of structural racism and oppression, as well as celebrate hope and resilience.

REVERBERATIONS seeks to showcase the highs and lows of the Black experience in America, highlighting themes of family and community as well as marginalization and prejudice. Curator of the exhibition, Desmond Clark, shares about REVERBERATIONS in this way, “Can you hear the song that has been playing for over four centuries? Can you feel how it vibrates our nation? Can you see how it has affected your neighbor, your friends, and your family? These artists live this every day. They weave the stories of past BIPOC people with their own. They inform and shape the art and actions that will come after. The rich history passed down for generations displayed in the images in this exhibition do not just echo; they reverberate.”

EXHIBITION DESCRIPTION

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.
