The Contemporaries: Field Trip to PORTSPACE

For our second Field Trip of 2017, The Contemporaries are visiting a unique live/work space in the heart of Gulfport!

Please join us at PORTSPACE Gallery, where we will meet with owner Randy Lloyd, Curator Will Douglas, and exhibiting artist Jenn Ryann Miller. Founded in 2015 and located in a 1920s bungalow, PORTSPACE “serves as an exchange point between contemporary art practices and the public as well as providing a platform for emerging and established artists, craftsmen, and designers.”

In the current exhibition, Christie’s Embrace, Miller explores materiality and aesthetics through abstract sculpture and painting. With a background in functional ceramics, her work subverts tradition and process through the experimentation with oblique materials and forms. Miller has been part of numerous solo and group exhibitions in Florida and the United States. Originally from Connecticut, she received a BFA from the University of Connecticut and MFA from the University of South Florida.

The educational meets the social at The Contemporaries’ events!

$15 for members of The Contemporaries; $20 for non-members
RSVP at mfastpete.org | Drinks and hors d’oeuvres will be served
