Issue 45/46 of Tampa Review features the 2012 winner of the $1,000 Danahy Fiction Prize, “Scar” by Mark Krieger. The cover art is a photograph of the expansive room-sized installation art of Carol Mickett and Robert Stackhouse exhibited in the Selby Gallery of the Ringling College of Art and Design of Sarasota, Florida. Like their installations, much of the work in this issue explores phases of identity, considers the marks we leave upon the world and questions permanence and change. Readers are invited to consider how experiences scar us, and to ask how permanent those marks may be.
The new double issue contains the work of twenty-eight poets, twelve works of art by painters, photographers, found-object sculptors, installation and mixed media artists, as well as six written works each in fiction and nonfiction categories.Fiction: Ellen Brown Furman, Mark Krieger, Virginia Pye, Ron Rindo, Matthew Vollmer, Daniel Wallace
