“Crossing the Bridge II,” a collaborative art exchange between
Creative Clay and Pyramid, Inc. opens on two evenings in August.
Crossing the Bridge II connects two art programs through collaboration between 12 artists from each organization creating 24 different paintings. Each organization began 12 pieces, which were then exchanged and completed by artists from the other program.
“Portrait” is the theme of the project, and artwork will portray humans, animals and other living things. All works will be of acrylic paint on 16”X20” canvas, $150.00 each.
Crossing the Bridge II features a vibrant collection of paintings celebrating diverse artistic voices transformed into shared narratives through the collaborative process,” said Jody Bikoff, Director of Exhibitions at Creative Clay.
Pyramid Visual Arts Instructor Mari Saito concurred: “The artists of Pyramid enjoy the excitement of wondering what the finished product will look like and how the ‘finishing’ artists will be influenced by the style, thoughts and other visual and intangible stimulus found in their works,” she said.
Crossing the Bridge II runs from Aug. 2 through Aug. 31, with openings on both sides of the bay:
• Pyramid, Inc., Friday, Aug. 2, 6-9 p.m. during First Friday Seminole Heights; 1508 W. Sligh Ave. Tampa, FL 33604; on exhibit Aug. 31.
• Creative Clay, Saturday, August 10, 5-9 p.m. during Second Saturday Artwalk; 1846 First Avenue S., St. Petersburg, FL 33712; on exhibit through Aug 31.
