“Take Me to the Water” artists examine St. Pete’s Salt Creek

ST. PETERSBURG — Through photos, spoken word, and sound, four artists will weave together an evening that examines the Salt Creek area during “Take Me To The Water(s),” an exhibit at Harbor Hall Gallery at USF, 1000 Third St. S, March 28-31, from 3-7 p.m.

Featuring the work of four creators from the Friends of Salt Creek Summer Artists in Residence, a program sponsored by the Tampa Bay Estuary Project, the work considers the environment and ecology, urban development, community, gentrification, and race and class issues that surround the Salt Creek area.

The exhibit includes the work of Saudade Toxosi (photography), Thomas Hallock (historic journalism), Sabrina Dalla Valle (oral narrative sound art), and Geveryl Robinson (spoken word) and was curated by Toxosi. The artist residency took place at the Frank Pierce Recreation Center located in Bartlett Park, a 133-acre green space that Salt Creek flows through, which is also a shoreline fishing location and sits adjacent to St. Petersburg Tennis Center.
