Two University of Tampa art professors are being featured in a special
exhibition at Florida Keys Community College, which culminates Dec. 20
with a closing reception and artists’ lecture.
titled “Visions, Views, and Crossings” includes 15 sculptural pieces
that are the work of Jack King, UT professor of art. Featured among
King’s exhibit pieces is sculpture titled “On Pins and Needles, Waiting
for the High Tide,” a mixed media piece that incorporates themes of
water and seagoing vessels, which are frequently seen in King’s work.
similar piece King sculpture, titled “Waiting on the Outbound Tide,”
was chosen earlier this year for inclusion in a collection of artwork to
be displayed at Tampa General Hospital.
King is joined in the
exhibit by his wife Kathleen, an adjunct professor of art at UT and
full-time art instructor at Tampa Preparatory School. Kathleen is
showcasing 10 large ceramic wall pieces.
The exhibit, on display
at the college’s Library Gallery at 5901 College Road, Key West, will
conclude Dec. 20 with a paella dinner at 6 p.m. followed by an artists’
lecture at 7 p.m.
