TECO Public Art Gallery presents an exhibition titled Alt. Spaces by husband and wife team Ron Weiss and Christine Ghezzo, photographers who are represented by United Photographic Artists Gallery.

Ron and Christine create photographs of the mundane, the easily seen and often ignored world around us such as building structures or ethereal reflections in store windows. Through their diverse images, they allow us to explore a new reality through illusionary spaces, complex planes of existence or simply the immense beauty of form and function. What we choose to ignore is then transformed into deconstructed alternative spaces, a new existence frozen in time and space. Ron and Christine, a multidisciplinary artist team, are based in St Petersburg, Florida. They travel the world extensively to seek the essence of the places they explore, a continuing search for the alternate realities we all inhabit.

Free Admission 

Through October 31, 2017

UPA Artists Featured in Cincinnati Ohio Gallery Show

UPA Artists Featured in Cincinnati Ohio Gallery Show

Press release

UPA Gallery represented artists Jose Gomez and Annie Gonzalez were selected to exhibit at the Manifest Gallery in Cincinnati, Ohio for the 9th Annual International Competitive Exhibit Exploring the Uncovered Human Form in Current Art.  The exhibition runs August 18 through September 15, 2017.

Manifest‘s annual projects allow them the chance to track how artists around the world address a consistent theme, subject, or media over time, or allow them to document the state of art in a particular strata of professional creative activity, and to study and preserve findings in a meaningful way through exhibit publications and website.

NUDE is one such project. The human body is a popular subject for many reasons, the most obvious being that it is us. Throughout history the representation of the human form has been charged with tremendous energy, both positive and negative. Whether it be a religious edict that one should not depict the human form, a taboo, or the glorious opposite, a revelation of mastery over form in the crafting of sensuous and life-like physical human beauty, the art of the body has nevertheless moved us through time.

Through all the permutations art has experienced across history, work of the body persists. We use the human nude to master skill, understand ourselves, and push social and psychological buttons for the sake of expression (sensual, delicate, political, aggressive, and so on). We intend for Manifest’s ongoing annual NUDE project to explore how our collective body is used today in art to achieve these goals and more.
