You like Cuban sandwiches, but what about Cuban soil?

Now that we have your attention, make plans to visit HCC Ybor’s Gallery 114 where Cuban-born Florida-based artist Lilian Garcia-Roig's "Hyphenated Nature" uses landscape painting (including pigments she made from soil) as a vehicle for examining notions like sense of place, belonging, and identity in both perceptually-based plein-air paintings and conceptually-based studio works.

It’s on display until Feb. 24, but that’s not all that’s happening at the HCC galleries.
A 10-minute drive away at HCC Dale Mabry’s Gallery 221—and up through March 3—is the Woodson African American Museum of Florida’s “Reverberations” travelling Exhibition featuring emerging and established Black artists who live and work in Tampa Bay and across the Southeastern United States.
