Gallery 221 at the Hillsborough Community College Dale Mabry Campus, is pleased to announce its upcoming exhibition, Mark Joseph Oliver: Not Here But There.  The exhibit will run from March 20 – April 27, with an exhibition reception and talk scheduled for Thursday, March 23, from 5-7 p.m.

Utilizing photography and sculpture to explore the role that location serves as a monument to the past, present and future, Mark Joseph Oliver invites the viewer to engage in memories of his experiences while at the same time creating a shared experience in the present. Known to create immersive installations, Oliver will continue in that practice for this exhibition as well. Informed by a recent trip to Norway, the artist will install the skeleton of a whale boat which will rest upon a base of salt and consume a large portion of the gallery floor space. Black and white landscape photographs with a screen print overlay, and video installation will also be included in the exhibition.

Oliver is currently based in Ashville, North Carolina.  He is a Tampa native and graduated from Hillsborough Community College before completing his BFA at the University of South Florida.  He received his MFA in Sculpture from the Maryland Institute College of Art, Baltimore, Maryland.
