’Capturing the figure from life is a very meditative and grounding exercise. It makes me feel connected to the creative process.’ - Mark Aeling.
Known in the area as a sculptor, Aeling helps facilitate the weekly figure-drawing sessions at Soft Water Studios. We carefully sifted through a drawer of Mark’s drawings that have accumulated for the past 7 years and selected 10 to be framed and displayed for tonight’s open gallery Artwalk. The luminous quality of the graphite on vellum allows even his 2-D drawings to feel sculptural. This curated display of Mark’s drawings on vellum paper and impeccably framed by JV framing will be on display the evening of 4/9/22 5-9pm. Second Saturday Art-Walk.

Last chance to see this incredible show tonight from 5-9pm💫 Masks required in the gallery - thank you 🌟

“The 3D photography of Jim Swallow: through the lens and magic of stereoscopic photography allowing you to meet each artist in their studio. The show then features the art of all 20 nationally and internationally known artists from St Petersburg in the gallery on exhibition with the 3D show. To create stereographs Jim uses two cameras synced together. The cameras are placed the same distance apart as the human eye so as to create a 3D image. After the images are printed they are viewed with antique stereographs, many of which were made in the 19th century. By bringing the stereoscope to your eyes you are blocking out all other elements in the room and having a virtual view into the reality of the artist’s studio. Come and be a part of the amazing art scene that is uniquely St. Petersburg. This show was made possible in part with an Individual Artist grant from the St. Petersburg Arts Alliance. This show is Free and Open to the public providing a safe socially distanced opportunity to see in person a very unique viewing experience.”
