A good way to find community-involved, active artists in the Tampa Bay area is to review the artists roster at TampaArtist, which is a non-profit, self-governing grass roots coalition of working fine artists. from the Central Gulf Coast of Florida. All hail their nameless webmaster for making this a usable, up-to-date site.
We don’t think there is any question that Megan Voeller, arts critic for Tampa Creative Loafing, among other things, has in Artsqueeze the most consistently useful source for arts news in the Tampa Bay area. Her’s is a personal blog, and as such is not subject to the constraints and publishing pressures of the blogging arm of a commercial publication. Translation: She can say what she wants and doesn’t need to publicize that which she feels is insignificant.
We all need news filters and aggregators. Easy enough to find nationally, tough to find locally.

We are reminded by these stories that we are more and more often asked to install security key picture-hanging hardware when we do large installations in Florida. For a mere two extra bucks a frame, enough security is afforded that the casual, opportunistic thief will be deterred. Oh, and the picture won’t bang around during earthquakes or whatever.
