At 25, St. Petersburg artist Timm Mettler might seem like an unusual candidate for a career retrospective, but that's essentially the experience his show, A Series of Shifting Landscapes, offers. Mettler, a graduate of the Pinellas County Center for the Arts (PCCA) at Gibbs High School and a current Eckerd College student, teamed up with former PCCA faculty member David Bewley to create the exhibit. Bewley culled a selection of Mettler's works — close to 100 pieces including paintings in acrylic and oil, sketchbooks, journals, study drawings, and Polaroid photographs — that follow the artist's decade-long transition from high school student to emerging artist. If you've ever wanted to peek inside the mind of a working artist, here's your chance; don't forget to pepper Mettler with questions about his diverse body of work at the exhibit's opening reception. "I don't see how work stops when you put it up on the wall," he says. The opening reception is from 6 to 9 p.m. Fri., Sept. 14, with the works on display through Oct. 6, [email protected], 620 First Ave. S., St. Petersburg, 727-895-6620,
