Flowers are a reminder of the impermanence of life. Here today, gone tomorrow. Their lifecycle from seed germinating in the darkness to graceful ballerinas dancing in their beauty to tender decay. There is beauty in all stages. This photo/mixed media series celebrates that beauty, and the joy and grief that comes with it. Michelle Nagri has been photographing and painting since 2010 as a way to find her voice. www.mnagriphoto.com

The Hippodrome Theater Art Gallery
25 Se 2nd Pl/352-375-4477
Hippodrome's Art Gallery is thrilled to present a remarkable exhibition featuring the works of Florida-based painter, Josiah Lloyd. Despite working in different mediums Lloyd's exhibition will only be showcasing paintings.
Josiah Lloyd has spent several years cultivating a powerful body of work that draws inspiration from different art practices. His artistic evolution into painting has been a journey marked by a keen focus on detail, a fusion of mediums, and a commitment to abstraction. The result is a collection of pieces that stand as a testament to Lloyd's unique perspective on memory, visual language, and the interplay between them.

presents "NO WORDS", an exhibit of watercolors and other works by Joon Thomas opening 7-9 pm on Friday, February 23. "What is a calligrapher to do when there are NO WORDS to express the depth of feeling? My world is filled with writing, but all too often I am at a loss for words. Words are not enough to express the magnitude of my feelings of loss, grief and sorrow; or even the logic -- of hope and happiness and joy that move me forward in spite of all that life entails." Show ends Tuesday, March 26 and may be seen after Artwalk by calling 352 514-3838.

A MULTI-MEDIA ART SPACE AND CAFE.
In anticipation of this coming or a future Artwalk Gainesville, the SL8 Gallery is suggesting an inter-gallery art swap, with the idea that visiting patrons can be challenged to identify the art that has originated from another gallery; e.g. an SL8 piece in the GFAA, or vice versa or Artisan's Guild or Black C, or Hippodrome, etc.
In any event, please feel free to stop by the SL8, which has an ever changing offering of art, film, food, and liquids to refresh your bodies and souls.
