Hillsborough Community College Ybor City Campus Gallery 114 at HCC presents Themes for the American Kestrel, an exhibition by the artist Ry McCullough. This exhibition will be on display January 19–April 29, 2021 by appointment only. A virtual artist reception is scheduled for Thursday, February 25, 2021 from 6:00–7:00 p.m. on Zoom.

Themes for the American Kestrel is a multimedia exhibition by Tampa-based artist Ry McCullough that uses the tradition of still life as a point of departure to explore different states of observance. A collection of small sculptures fabricated from humble materials act as stand-ins or approximations for familiar objects like boxes, vessels, and tchotchkes. These sculptures become objects and subjects as they participate in a diverse presentation of still life arrangements in works on paper, video, and installation. Formal tension and balance give these stand-ins charge and purpose, putting into motion a network of relationships and contingencies. Ry McCullough is currently an Associate Professor at the University of Tampa.
