STICKS OF FIRE
Artist-run, nonprofit gallery Tempus Projects is proud to present an exhibition featuring submissions from our annual open call with the guest juror, Eileen Goldenberg. ‘STICKS OF FIRE’ is a multi-media, juried art exhibition focusing on the theme of the sinister side of the Sunshine State. The work ‘sunistra’ is a portmanteau of “sunshine” and the Latin word “sinistra” and reflects the often idyllic/nightmarish dichotomy Florida embodies in its natural, social, and political climates. This exhibition’s third iteration is rooted in a Tampa epithet as the ‘lightning capital of the world.’
The works in this exhibition were selected on their ability to capture the breathtaking essence of Florida as a fear-inducing phenomenon, represent the ethos of unpredictable rhythm, luminous danger, and ephemeral otherworldly essence.
Artists included in this exhibition are Jenny Carey, Will Douglas, Emily Heffernan, Eric Ondina, Selina Roman, Leah Sandler, Xina Scuderi, Suzanne Williamson, and Alex Zak.
