Tampa, FL

Hillsborough Community College Ybor City Campus Gallery 114 presents a Photoshop art exhibition Pieces of Reality: A Twisted Journey Through the Mind of the Artist by Tampa artist Mark Rodriguez August 19 - September 19. An artist reception will take place on September 5 from 4:30 - 7:30 p.m. with a gallery talk at 6:15 p.m. Events are free and open to the public.

Mark Rodriguez is a Tampa visual artist whose cutting-edge work is a twisted ride through reality and the subconscious. His self-portrait work is a blend of elements from pop culture surrealism, humor, horror, and all points in between.  His Photoshop images are steeped in story and hidden meanings, and they frequently juxtapose the familiar with the unexpected in what he calls “approachable darkness.” He is the recipient of the “Best in Show” 2015 Photoshop World Guru award. The exhibit is curated by HCC Assistant Professor of Art Christopher W. Weeks, Photography and Digital Art.

Gallery 114 is located in the Performing Arts Building, first floor, Palm Ave and 15th street. Regular hours are Monday, Wednesday and Friday 10 a.m. – & Tuesday noon to 7 p.m. Parking is available in the HCC visitor lots, the Ybor Garage on 15th St and the Nuccio Parking Garage.
