The final days of spring semester at the University of South Florida are drawing to a close but there is still time to make a trip to the arts department for some last shows.
The highlight this week is at the William and Nancy Oliver Gallery as it highlights some USF photography students such as Ryan Stone, Caroline Uhl and Amy Royale. The gallery itself is not immense, so it’s good for a break from that last minute studying for finals. The reception for the event will be held Friday at 7p.m., but during the week the gallery is open 11a.m.-3 p.m.
The exhibit will change each of the following weeks until the semester is over, and will keep the same hours of operation. For photography lovers, however, this is the week to go to see what other students have done.
There is also still the Starting Fires exhibit that is being held in the Contemporary Art Museum that is close to the Oliver Gallery. Staff at CAM wants to remind visitors not to touch the art though it maybe very tempting. There are pendulums to swing and toy-like models, but it is there for aesthetic appeal only.
One of the other galleries to visit is the Centre Gallery in the Marshall Center which is featuring DigiMazing by Scott Draft, Samuel Bishop, Adrian Errico and Lindsay Scroggins. This is also a smaller gallery run by USF, so if you’re short on time these last weeks of school and just wanted a break from all the hard work.
