EXHIBITION DESCRIPTION

Roving presents mixed media and fiber-based artworks by Nneka Jones, Kandy G Lopez and Eugene Ofori Agyei. Deftly weaving together the medium of fiber with painting, sculpture, performance and installation, Roving invites viewers to investigate notions of home, belonging, identity and ancestry. Rather than arriving at fixed destinations or meanings, the artworks included in Gallery221@HCC examine the psychological and emotional complexities of self-reflection, movement and memory, intertwining our sense of being with the process of becoming.

Nneka Jones is a Trinidadian-born multidisciplinary artist currently working in Tampa, FL (BFA, University of Tampa, 2020). Kandy G Lopez is an Afro-Caribbean artist currently working as an Associate Professor at Nova Southeastern University in Davie, FL (MFA, Florida Atlantic University, 2014). Eugene Ofori Agyei is a Ghanaian-born artist currently working as the Robert Chapman Turner Teaching Fellow at Alfred University in Alfred, NY (MFA, University of Florida, 2023).

EXHIBITION DESCRIPTION

Over the past four decades, the Hillsborough Community College’s Permanent Art Collection has fostered strong connections between the college and local arts community. Now including over 200 objects, the collection maintains a strong focus on artists who have lived or worked in the Tampa Bay region. This exhibition spotlights significant artworks curated by the college’s collection manager, Alyssa Miller. Accompanying oral history interviews add richness to the work on view, as selected artists were asked to discuss their work as well as their own connection to the region. In Their Own Words engages the local community in honoring the artistic and cultural legacy of Tampa Bay by inviting a greater diversity of voices to lead in the interpretation and discussion of the artworks in the collection.

Artists include: Suzanne Camp Crosby, Aneka Ingold, Aimee Jones, Akiko Kotani, Tom Kramer, Tracy Midulla, Wanda Raimundi-Ortiz, Renatto Rampolla, Frank Rampolla, Babs Reingold, Omar Richardson, Emiliano Settecasi, Kirk Ke Wang, and Ruby C. Williams.
