Gallery Documentation: "Mementos" at the Centre Gallery / by James Reiman

Last week I documented Mementos at the Centre Gallery located on the second floor of the Marshall Student Center at the University of South Florida Tampa campus.  Mementos is a group exhibition with works by Tampa-based artists: Jessica Barber, Jenal Dolson, Chasity Williams, Jessica Brasseur, and Pat Blocher, curated by Alyssa Cordero. The exhibition was on view from September 18 - 29, 2017.

Here is a portion of the original press release for the exhibit:

Visitors to the gallery will experience works that examine the ideas of memory and art as souvenirs of experiences. Through combinations of painting, installation, photography, drawing, and mixed medium the artists create mixtures of their experiences frozen in time as a visual memory. These works are shared memories created by the artist and then experienced again by the viewer.

Using combinations of different mediums and forms of techniques, the artist’s emphasize familiar imagery and forms to created these works of moments. The artists are all Tampa-based and current USF students or alumni.
