TAMPA, FL – July 3, 2015 | The Florida Museum of Photographic Arts (FMoPA) is pleased to announce First Fridays July celebrating the opening of New Visions 2015 featuring solo exhibitions by Henthorne and Joseph Gamble and an artist talk by Joseph Gamble.

New Visions, FMoPA’s annual platform for emerging artists navigating contemporary aesthetic and cultural trends, currently features photographers Henthorne and Joseph Gamble and will run through August 31st. Henthorne’s black and white photographs examine intersections of earth and ocean along Florida’s coastline, serving as both environmental documents and dreamy homages to nature verging on the surreal.

Showcasing his largest exhibition to date, Joseph Gamble’s show consists of his complete "Moments in Place" series, as well as the debut of 12 large format photographs from "Forgotten Space," his ongoing inquiry into the early days of the U.S. Space Program. Mr. Gamble will discuss his work at 7 p.m. in FMoPA’s newly renovated classroom.

“Through the work of our New Visions artists, we gain a valuable glimpse into the direction of contemporary art. We are thrilled to exhibit Henthorne and Gamble’s work, as well as provide a space for Mr. Gamble himself to share insights into his work and engage directly with the Tampa art museum and Tampa photography communities this week,” says Zora Carrier, FMoPA’s Executive Director.


Refreshments and flatbreads will be graciously provided by local favorite, Pane Rustica.

Admission: Free for members, $10 for not-yet members.
