    Join WADA Member, Andrea Pawlisz, for a very special art opening at MIZE Gallery. 

    Andrea is creating all new work for the show. The opening will be held on Friday, July 9th from 6pm to 9pm. The MIZE Gallery is located at 689 Dr M.L.K. Jr St N unit c, St. Petersburg, FL 33701.


    Having had a wonderful, playful childhood in the late sixties/early seventies, I have painted the games and activities I loved as a child: riding bikes, hopscotch, baseball. Each painting illustrates a figure in grayscale paired with colorful complementary background elements. All main figures are brush painted, with all the other elements spray painted. A limited color palette lends continuity, along with the use of the same font and spray treatment throughout.

    Widening the scope of my canvas art, there are several 3D pieces: lunchboxes, paper airplanes, a rocking chair, a lap desk and a swing. Like the paintings, they are painted combining brush and spray.

    My hope is that the viewer will have a sentimental memory of a time or place when they felt happy. Presenting this work is to remind us all the importance of play.

    Thank you to Deb Zimmerman, who was not only muse and editor, but who offered unwavering encouragement and understanding. Thank you to Susan Howard, my bestie and mentor and collector, whose support and critique keep me and my work in line. Thank you to Chad Mize for his motivation, by setting an example of hard work. I so appreciate working with him and for him.

    The James Museum and the Dr. Carter G Woodson Museum have partnered for a new exhibition this summer titled Reverberations. Reverberations shares artwork from emerging and established Black artists who live and work in Tampa Bay and across the Southeastern United States. Through each artists’ own perspective, this exhibition will challenge viewers with stories of structural racism and oppression, as well as celebrate hope and resilience.

    Juneteenth, also known as Juneteenth Independence Day or Freedom Day, is an American holiday that commemorates the June 19, 1865, announcement of the abolition of slavery in Texas, and more generally the emancipation of enslaved African Americans throughout the former Confederate States of America. The title Juneteenth is a fusion of the words ‘June’ and ‘nineteenth,’ celebrating the emancipation of African Americans from slavery on June 19.

    Curator of the exhibition, Desmond Clark, shares about REVERBERATIONS in this way, “Can you hear the song that has been playing for over four centuries? Can you feel how it vibrates our nation? Can you see how it has affected your neighbor, your friends, and your family? The rich history passed down for generations displayed in the images in this exhibition do not just echo; they reverberate.”

    This event is only for members of the Warehouse Arts District Association. Not a member? Join today! https://www.warehouseartsdistrictstpete.org/join-us
