The PAW ART  PULSE GALLERY announces a new exhibit featuring the art of  Judy Bales and Rich Baccheschi.   Judy Bales’ printmaking career took off from her love of the art and her early studies in graphic design. Throughout Judy’s life her vocation has been Graphic Design in the world of advertising and publishing, which brought her to Tampa 20 years ago. Judy’s printmaking, well defined and expertly created,  covers the range of animal life, sea life  and religious expression. Judy has shown her work extensively throughout Tampa and St. Petersburg and has received great success in her calligraphy, printmaking and artistry in all areas. Rich Bacchesci, at 90 years of age, is a well seasoned and artist, although he began his career in 2001 in oils. Since then he has come to appreciate expressing his art in acrylics. Rich loves to paint landscape and animal paintings. He does admit he has “slowed down” a bit through the years but still manages to work on his art and complete at least one painting a month. Come to PAW to view the terrific art while enjoying PAW’s delicious craft brews at their recently expanded brewery. Relax in the beer garden or tasting room, a great atmosphere in the Grand Central District of St. Pete.  PAW, living up to it’s name, is pet friendly. Every second Thursday of the month is Yappy Hour. Bring Fido along and enjoy a fresh craft brew of which PAW donates $1 from every pint sold to the Pet Pal Animal Shelter.  More fun events include Wednesday nights 7pm Trivia contests, with prizes and gift certificates for winners!
Tim Gibbons and Jayne Lisbeth curate the art at Pinellas Aleworks PAW ART PULSE GALLERY. For more information in exhibiting your art please contact Funky As A Monkey Art Studio, 813.231.2579 or tim@funkyasamonkey.com. Judy also teaches printmaking classes at the Life Enrichment Center in Tampa.

The Florida Holocaust Museum (The FHM) is pleased to present Courage and Compassion: The Legacy of the Bielski Brothers. This original, award-winning exhibition created by The FHM showcases the heroic efforts of three brothers who helped save more than 1,200 people while living in the forest during World War II. As portrayed in the popular film Defiance, the three brothers, Tuvia, Asael, and Zus Bielski, took refuge from the Nazis in the forests surrounding Novogrudok, Belarus. In the forest, they formed a community of men, women, and children. Through the brothers' leadership, the group survived starvation, harsh winters, and the threat of the Nazis and their collaborators. The Bielski Brothers Jewish partisan unit or otriad, as known in Russian, was unique. While the great majority of partisan groups in World War II sought to fight the Germans in their midst, the Bielski brothers cared more about preserving the lives of as many Jews as possible than they did about attacking the German forces that occupied Western Belorussia. For more than two years the brothers commanded their partisan unit in the Belorussian forests. Their acts of rescue during extremely dangerous times stands as a monument to courage and compassion. The Bielski brothers may be called Upstanders, individuals willing to put their own lives in danger on behalf of others. This exhibition tells their story. This exhibition is presented nationally by Bank of America and on display at The Florida Holocaust Museum from January 14, 2017 through June 18, 2017. [less-]

Greg Smith is a multidisciplinary artist whose work often involves the “artifice mechanic,” a character trying to “create something, trying to structure his environment, but who’s also kind of hapless, and, in the end, probably doomed.” Smith has a PhD in Physics, and indeed his work explores the big questions of our experience, albeit in humorous and home-made methods. Based in New York City, he is best known for his videos, though he also produces installations and sculpture. His innovative work explores the big questions of our experience, using humorous, homemade methods. Smith’s video Breakdown Lane (2013) functions as both an exploration of the archetypal journey inherent to the road movie genre and as a reflection on the video medium itself. Throughout the absurd narrative, Smith rigorously attempts to maneuver his improbable automobile out of the breakdown lane. Greg Smith earned a PhD in Physics from Harvard University and an MFA from Hunter College. He has exhibited widely, at institutions including Artists Space, New York; McNay Art  Museum, San Antonio; and Weatherspoon Art Museum, Greensboro. He received the John Simon Guggenheim Fellowship in 2013. Smith currently resides in New York City. Critic Sarah Goffstein has written that “beyond optical accidents, the makeshift mechanics of Smith’s vehicle put the artist at risk…It is hard not to expect electrocution or explosions.” The video is shown on an improvised theater in the center of his installation and was selected by Curator of Contemporary Art Katherine Pill to complement The Open Road: Photography and the American Road Trip.

“Joy rides, voyages of discovery, surveys, wanderings, migrations, polemics, travel diaries, and assessment of the nation. Is America even imaginable without the road trip?” — David Campany The road trip is an enduring symbol in American culture. Ever since cars became widely available, the road stretching over the horizon has represented a sense of possibility, freedom, discover, and escape — a place to get lost and find yourself in the process. The American road trip has appeared prominently in literature, music, and movies, but it has had an especially powerful influence on photography. As photographers have embarked on trips across the United States with the express purpose of making work, they have created some of the most important photographs in the history of the medium. The Open Road explores the photographic road trip as a genre. It traces the rise of road culture in America and considers photographers on the move across the country and across the century, from the mid-1950’s to present day. Beginning with Robert Frank’s seminal odyssey, The Americans, and including such renowned work as Ed Rushcha’s Twentysix Gasoline Stations, Inge Morath’s The Road to Reno, Lee Friedlander’s American Monument, Garry Winogrand’s 1964, Joel Sternfeld’s American Prospects, Stephen Shore’s Uncommon Places, and Alec Soth’s Sleeping by the Mississippi, The Open Road is a visual tour de force, presenting the story of photographers for whom the American road is muse. Exhibition organized by Aperture Foundation, New York. David Campany and Denise Wolff, curators.

Dig brings together recent works by Mr. Labauvie in his signature media of steel and pastels. The theme of the ruin runs throughout, as he seems to take on the role of archaeologist, digging into the earth’s histories to try to understand their effect on current events. The formal explorations of interdisciplinary artist Dominique Labauvie are rooted in both material and a highly developed relationship to philosophies of the drawn line. He has written: “When a line bends, it slows down; as it expands, it suddenly appears as a flat surface – it carves out its presence in space like a black hole. The ground (any ground: earth, wood or stone) hosts the forged lines as the landscape that for centuries has been mapped by rivers, roads, and highways. The line informs us about the absent forms, as only the missing remain in our memories, our books, and in our images. The line attests to the desire of thought.”
Born in Strasbourg, France, Mr. Labauvie has resided in Tampa since 1998 with his wife, master printer Erika Greenberg-Schneider, founder of Bleu Acier studio and gallery. He earned his BA in literature and philosophy from the Academy of Colmar and studied art history at the University of Strasbourg. He concentrated on sculpture at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris and later taught at the École des Beaux-Arts in Tourcoing, France. He has shown his work internationally. He is represented in the collections of the Musée des arts décoratifs, Palais du Louvre, in Paris; Musée d'art moderne et contemporain de Céret, France; and closer to home, the MFA and the Boca Raton Museum of Art. Mr. Labauvie has been commissioned to create large-scale public sculptures in Paris, Dijon, and Tampa. This is his first Spotlight exhibition at the MFA, organized by Curator of Contemporary Art Katherine Pill. [less-]

INFORMED CONSENT by Deborah Zoe Laufer Directed by Benjamin T. Ismail
“A thoughtful and engrossing play…that raises questions about the potential conflicts between scientific discovery and religious beliefs.” -The Cleveland
With genomic breakthroughs happening at breakneck speed, we can learn more about what our futures may hold than ever before. But how much should we know? And who gets to decide? An electrifying new play by one of the most exciting voices in American theater, INFORMED CONSENT is a powerful drama about one woman’s quest to answer the mysteries of science and her own life. Inspired by a landmark court case between one of the country’s largest universities and a Native American tribe based in the Grand Canyon INFORMED CONSENT takes us into the personal and national debate about science v. belief, and whether our genetics defines our fate. Is your DNA your destiny?

“1964” …The Tribute takes audiences on a musical journey to an era in rock history that will live in all of our hearts forever. They are hailed by critics and fans alike as the most authentic and endearing Beatles tribute in the world. Choosing songs from the pre-Sgt. Pepper era, 1964 astonishingly recreates an early ‘60s live Beatles concert, with period instruments, clothing, hairstyles, and onstage banter. Rolling Stone calls 1964 “The Best Beatles Tribute on Earth.” [less-]

Called by jazz guitar master George Benson, “One of the greatest guitarists I’ve seen in my whole life,” the Brazilian guitar wizard Diego Figueiredo is a force to be recognized. Acclaimed by the critics as the newest discovery in the guitar world, Figueiredo has made a massive impression in the contemporary jazz world. He received awards twice at the Montreux Jazz Festival, performing amazing concerts uniting technique and emotion in a fusion of Brazilian music and jazz. Based in St. Petersburg, Florida, O Som Do Jazz features Rio de Janeiro singer Andrea Moraes Manson and a crew of experienced musicians performing Brazilian jazz, Bossa Nova, samba, samba, Balanço and MPB. O Som Do Jazz (the sound of jazz in Portuguese) recaptures the grace, energy and spirit of 1960s Brazilian music. Heralded as the best Brazilian band in Florida, the music of O Som Do Jazz has been featured in HBO's series "Looking", Fox "Grandfathered", BBC One's "The Replacement", as well as in Chinese and Turkish bossa nova compilations.

The Florida Holocaust Museum’s Genocide and Human Rights Awareness Movement (GHRAM) lecture series brings Rwandan Genocide testimony expert Karen Jungblut to St. Petersburg! As the Director of Research and Documentation at the University of Southern California Shoah Foundation, Jungblut oversees scholarship and research activities, as well as a global network of partner sites with access to the Institute’s nearly 52,000 testimonies. Jungblut is in charge of expanding the existing archive with video of Survivors of other genocides, which will provide scholars and teachers with unprecedented research and teaching opportunities. In 2013, the USC Shoah Foundation’s Visual History Archive expanded beyond the Holocaust for the first time, taking in 64 audiovisual testimonies of survivors and witnesses of the Genocide against the Tutsi in Rwanda. That set of atrocities claimed as many as one million lives over the course of about 100 days in 1994 when government-backed militias of ethnic Hutus went on a mass killing spree targeting the country’s next largest ethnic group, the Tutsis. The Rwandan government has since eliminated the official use of those ethnic terms in its census and on identity cards in hopes of fostering reconciliation. In order to integrate testimonies recorded and owned by other organizations into the Visual History Archive, the USC Shoah Foundation has initiated the Preserving the Legacy program, in which The Florida Holocaust Museum is an active partner and a soon to be access point for the Visual History Archive. The Visual History Archive allows users to search through and view more than 54,000 video testimonies of survivors and witnesses of genocide. In addition to Holocaust testimony, the Visual History Archive includes testimonies from the Armenian Genocide that coincided with World War I, the 1937 Nanjing Massacre in China, the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi in Rwanda, the Guatemalan Genocide of 1978-1996 and the Cambodian Genocide of 1975-1979. This program is one of many free programs to be offered by The FHM this year in celebration of its 25th Anniversary. For additional information about this program and to learn more about The FHM’s upcoming 25th Anniversary events and exhibitions, visit the Museum online at www.TheFHM.org/25th.   [less-]

Throughout Judy’s life her vocation has been Graphic Design in the world of advertising and publishing, which brought her to Tampa 20 years ago. Judy’s printmaking, well defined and expertly created,  covers the range of animal life, sea life  and religious expression. Judy has shown her work extensively throughout Tampa and St. Petersburg and has received great success in her calligraphy, printmaking and artistry in all areas. Rich Bacchesci, at 90 years of age, is a well seasoned and artist, although he began his career in 2001 in oils. Since then he has come to appreciate expressing his art in acrylics. Rich loves to paint landscape and animal paintings. He does admit he has “slowed down” a bit through the years but still manages to work on his art and complete at least one painting a month. Come to PAW to view the terrific art while enjoying PAW’s delicious craft brews at their recently expanded brewery. Relax in the beer garden or tasting room, a great atmosphere in the Grand Central District of St. Pete.  PAW, living up to it’s name, is pet friendly. Every second Thursday of the month is Yappy Hour. Bring Fido along and enjoy a fresh craft brew of which PAW donates $1 from every pint sold to the Pet Pal Animal Shelter.  More fun events include Wednesday nights 7pm Trivia contests, with prizes and gift certificates for winners!
Tim Gibbons and Jayne Lisbeth curate the art at Pinellas Aleworks PAW ART PULSE GALLERY. For more information in exhibiting your art please contact Funky As A Monkey Art Studio, 813.231.2579 or tim@funkyasamonkey.com.

The Florida Holocaust Museum (The FHM) is pleased to present Courage and Compassion: The Legacy of the Bielski Brothers. This original, award-winning exhibition created by The FHM showcases the heroic efforts of three brothers who helped save more than 1,200 people while living in the forest during World War II. As portrayed in the popular film Defiance, the three brothers, Tuvia, Asael, and Zus Bielski, took refuge from the Nazis in the forests surrounding Novogrudok, Belarus. In the forest, they formed a community of men, women, and children. Through the brothers' leadership, the group survived starvation, harsh winters, and the threat of the Nazis and their collaborators. The Bielski Brothers Jewish partisan unit or otriad, as known in Russian, was unique. While the great majority of partisan groups in World War II sought to fight the Germans in their midst, the Bielski brothers cared more about preserving the lives of as many Jews as possible than they did about attacking the German forces that occupied Western Belorussia. For more than two years the brothers commanded their partisan unit in the Belorussian forests. Their acts of rescue during extremely dangerous times stands as a monument to courage and compassion. The Bielski brothers may be called Upstanders, individuals willing to put their own lives in danger on behalf of others. This exhibition tells their story. This exhibition is presented nationally by Bank of America and on display at The Florida Holocaust Museum from January 14, 2017 through June 18, 2017. [less-]

Greg Smith is a multidisciplinary artist whose work often involves the “artifice mechanic,” a character trying to “create something, trying to structure his environment, but who’s also kind of hapless, and, in the end, probably doomed.” Smith has a PhD in Physics, and indeed his work explores the big questions of our experience, albeit in humorous and home-made methods. Based in New York City, he is best known for his videos, though he also produces installations and sculpture. His innovative work explores the big questions of our experience, using humorous, homemade methods. Smith’s video Breakdown Lane (2013) functions as both an exploration of the archetypal journey inherent to the road movie genre and as a reflection on the video medium itself. Throughout the absurd narrative, Smith rigorously attempts to maneuver his improbable automobile out of the breakdown lane. Greg Smith earned a PhD in Physics from Harvard University and an MFA from Hunter College. He has exhibited widely, at institutions including Artists Space, New York; McNay Art  Museum, San Antonio; and Weatherspoon Art Museum, Greensboro. He received the John Simon Guggenheim Fellowship in 2013. Smith currently resides in New York City. Critic Sarah Goffstein has written that “beyond optical accidents, the makeshift mechanics of Smith’s vehicle put the artist at risk…It is hard not to expect electrocution or explosions.” The video is shown on an improvised theater in the center of his installation and was selected by Curator of Contemporary Art Katherine Pill to complement The Open Road: Photography and the American Road Trip.

“Joy rides, voyages of discovery, surveys, wanderings, migrations, polemics, travel diaries, and assessment of the nation. Is America even imaginable without the road trip?” — David Campany The road trip is an enduring symbol in American culture. Ever since cars became widely available, the road stretching over the horizon has represented a sense of possibility, freedom, discover, and escape — a place to get lost and find yourself in the process. The American road trip has appeared prominently in literature, music, and movies, but it has had an especially powerful influence on photography. As photographers have embarked on trips across the United States with the express purpose of making work, they have created some of the most important photographs in the history of the medium. The Open Road explores the photographic road trip as a genre. It traces the rise of road culture in America and considers photographers on the move across the country and across the century, from the mid-1950’s to present day. Beginning with Robert Frank’s seminal odyssey, The Americans, and including such renowned work as Ed Rushcha’s Twentysix Gasoline Stations, Inge Morath’s The Road to Reno, Lee Friedlander’s American Monument, Garry Winogrand’s 1964, Joel Sternfeld’s American Prospects, Stephen Shore’s Uncommon Places, and Alec Soth’s Sleeping by the Mississippi, The Open Road is a visual tour de force, presenting the story of photographers for whom the American road is muse. Exhibition organized by Aperture Foundation, New York. David Campany and Denise Wolff, curators.

Dig brings together recent works by Mr. Labauvie in his signature media of steel and pastels. The theme of the ruin runs throughout, as he seems to take on the role of archaeologist, digging into the earth’s histories to try to understand their effect on current events. The formal explorations of interdisciplinary artist Dominique Labauvie are rooted in both material and a highly developed relationship to philosophies of the drawn line. He has written: “When a line bends, it slows down; as it expands, it suddenly appears as a flat surface – it carves out its presence in space like a black hole. The ground (any ground: earth, wood or stone) hosts the forged lines as the landscape that for centuries has been mapped by rivers, roads, and highways. The line informs us about the absent forms, as only the missing remain in our memories, our books, and in our images. The line attests to the desire of thought.”
Born in Strasbourg, France, Mr. Labauvie has resided in Tampa since 1998 with his wife, master printer Erika Greenberg-Schneider, founder of Bleu Acier studio and gallery. He earned his BA in literature and philosophy from the Academy of Colmar and studied art history at the University of Strasbourg. He concentrated on sculpture at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris and later taught at the École des Beaux-Arts in Tourcoing, France. He has shown his work internationally. He is represented in the collections of the Musée des arts décoratifs, Palais du Louvre, in Paris; Musée d'art moderne et contemporain de Céret, France; and closer to home, the MFA and the Boca Raton Museum of Art. Mr. Labauvie has been commissioned to create large-scale public sculptures in Paris, Dijon, and Tampa. This is his first Spotlight exhibition at the MFA, organized by Curator of Contemporary Art Katherine Pill. [less-]

INFORMED CONSENT by Deborah Zoe Laufer Directed by Benjamin T. Ismail
“A thoughtful and engrossing play…that raises questions about the potential conflicts between scientific discovery and religious beliefs.” -The Cleveland
With genomic breakthroughs happening at breakneck speed, we can learn more about what our futures may hold than ever before. But how much should we know? And who gets to decide? An electrifying new play by one of the most exciting voices in American theater, INFORMED CONSENT is a powerful drama about one woman’s quest to answer the mysteries of science and her own life. Inspired by a landmark court case between one of the country’s largest universities and a Native American tribe based in the Grand Canyon INFORMED CONSENT takes us into the personal and national debate about science v. belief, and whether our genetics defines our fate. Is your DNA your destiny?

“1964” …The Tribute takes audiences on a musical journey to an era in rock history that will live in all of our hearts forever. They are hailed by critics and fans alike as the most authentic and endearing Beatles tribute in the world. Choosing songs from the pre-Sgt. Pepper era, 1964 astonishingly recreates an early ‘60s live Beatles concert, with period instruments, clothing, hairstyles, and onstage banter. Rolling Stone calls 1964 “The Best Beatles Tribute on Earth.” [less-]

Called by jazz guitar master George Benson, “One of the greatest guitarists I’ve seen in my whole life,” the Brazilian guitar wizard Diego Figueiredo is a force to be recognized. Acclaimed by the critics as the newest discovery in the guitar world, Figueiredo has made a massive impression in the contemporary jazz world. He received awards twice at the Montreux Jazz Festival, performing amazing concerts uniting technique and emotion in a fusion of Brazilian music and jazz. Based in St. Petersburg, Florida, O Som Do Jazz features Rio de Janeiro singer Andrea Moraes Manson and a crew of experienced musicians performing Brazilian jazz, Bossa Nova, samba, samba, Balanço and MPB. O Som Do Jazz (the sound of jazz in Portuguese) recaptures the grace, energy and spirit of 1960s Brazilian music. Heralded as the best Brazilian band in Florida, the music of O Som Do Jazz has been featured in HBO's series "Looking", Fox "Grandfathered", BBC One's "The Replacement", as well as in Chinese and Turkish bossa nova compilations.

Karen Jungblut Lecture: Testimonies from the Rwandan Genocide

The Florida Holocaust Museum’s Genocide and Human Rights Awareness Movement (GHRAM) lecture series brings Rwandan Genocide testimony expert Karen Jungblut to St. Petersburg! As the Director of Research and Documentation at the University of Southern California Shoah Foundation, Jungblut oversees scholarship and research activities, as well as a global network of partner sites with access to the Institute’s nearly 52,000 testimonies. Jungblut is in charge of expanding the existing archive with video of Survivors of other genocides, which will provide scholars and teachers with unprecedented research and teaching opportunities. In 2013, the USC Shoah Foundation’s Visual History Archive expanded beyond the Holocaust for the first time, taking in 64 audiovisual testimonies of survivors and witnesses of the Genocide against the Tutsi in Rwanda. That set of atrocities claimed as many as one million lives over the course of about 100 days in 1994 when government-backed militias of ethnic Hutus went on a mass killing spree targeting the country’s next largest ethnic group, the Tutsis. The Rwandan government has since eliminated the official use of those ethnic terms in its census and on identity cards in hopes of fostering reconciliation. In order to integrate testimonies recorded and owned by other organizations into the Visual History Archive, the USC Shoah Foundation has initiated the Preserving the Legacy program, in which The Florida Holocaust Museum is an active partner and a soon to be access point for the Visual History Archive. The Visual History Archive allows users to search through and view more than 54,000 video testimonies of survivors and witnesses of genocide. In addition to Holocaust testimony, the Visual History Archive includes testimonies from the Armenian Genocide that coincided with World War I, the 1937 Nanjing Massacre in China, the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi in Rwanda, the Guatemalan Genocide of 1978-1996 and the Cambodian Genocide of 1975-1979. This program is one of many free programs to be offered by The FHM this year in celebration of its 25th Anniversary. For additional information about this program and to learn more about The FHM’s upcoming 25th Anniversary events and exhibitions, visit the Museum online at www.TheFHM.org/25th.   [less-]
