You Can Feel What We See: Works by Visually Impaired Students in Pinellas County Schools
September 20 – October 20, 2019
The concept behind this show is to introduce the sighted viewer to the way visually impaired people view their world, literally, with their hands. Most of the more than 70 pieces of artwork submitted are touchable and people are encouraged to touch the artwork in a gentle, methodical way that will bring out the whole picture after “feeling” the sum of the parts.
This is Me: Self Portraits of Morean Members
July 13 – September 19, 2019 (opening reception July 13, 5 to 9pm)
The Morean Arts Center continues to dedicate this season as a time to appreciate our artist members and celebrate their talent.
The 2019 members exhibition, with a more personal theme than in previous years, includes nearly 200 works of art expressing “who” our artist members are. Whether a literal interpretation of a self-portrait, or a more conceptual idea; whether a painting, a sculpture, or a photograph, we get a glimpse into the lives and personalities of these artists through their intriguing work.

Richard Seidel at the Hermitage
June 21 – October 20, 2019
The Morean and Hermitage Apartment Homes are partnering to bring recognition to our local artists by way of exhibition space. The first floor lobby of the Hermitage, located two blocks from the Morean, is a beautiful, airy, contemporary space–perfect for showcasing artwork. See Richard Seidel’s vibrant, expressive paintings at the Hermitage Apartment Homes lobby, located at 151 7th Street S in St. Petersburg.
Richard’s lively figurative and abstract paintings are inspired by the bright and beautiful colors of St. Petersburg’s downtown and beaches, coastal vacations, and his numerous artist residencies abroad.
