Wild, wild Western art

ArtSaturday, May 5

Now in its eighth year, Raymond James Financial's Wildlife & Western Visions Art Show is a two-day invitational exhibit that's become as popular with collectors as with the local arts loving community, both for its broad selection of works — more than 300 this year — and variety of well-regarded participating artists. Highlights include photorealistic landscape and wildlife paintings of Florida by Charles Rowe; stone carvings of Native American rituals, ceremonies, dances and other cultural aspects of tribal life by Ute-Navajo artist Oreland Joe; and bronze sculptures of the American West by Vic Payne. In addition, fine Native American jewelry makes its first-ever appearance at the show, with expertly handcrafted gold, sterling silver and natural stone pieces by Wichita jewelry designer Dina Huntinghorse and Hopi jeweler Don Supple. All 18 participating artists will be present for the show. For more info, call the Plainsmen Gallery at 727-726-5100 or visit wildlifeartshow.com. May 5-6, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Sat., 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Sun., Raymond James Financial Center, Tower IV, 880 Carillon Parkway, St. Petersburg, free admission.
