(PR NewsChannel) / January 16, 2017 / Tampa, FL 

Please visit the Florida Museum of Photographic Arts for the opening of Gravity, an exhibition by Linda Connor, an artist known for her fascination with culturally sacred sites and landscapes. The exhibition runs through March 31, 2017.

This stunning exhibition features Connor’s work that connects to a wide range of subject matter, from the physical to the spiritual. Working with a large format camera, Connor has traveled to Africa, Southeast Asia, Nepal, India, Turkey, Mexico, Tibet, the American Southwest, and Europe in order to capture these spiritual sites. The meditative nature of the exhibition captures light and space but without the construct of linear time or concrete place. Linda Connor will visit FMoPA on March 17, 2017 in order to give a special Artist Talk at 6 pm regarding the exhibition.

“This transformative exhibition is the ideal way to begin the New Year at FMoPA; the show is truly captivating and we are honored to exhibit this work as well as the artist herself in March,” says Zora Carrier, PhD, FMoPA’s Executive Director.

The Florida Museum of Photographic Arts is one of fewer than ten museums in the United States dedicated exclusively to photography and one of two such museums in the state of Florida. FMoPA seeks to enrich the lives of the citizens of the Tampa Bay area by providing rare, specialized access to the wonders of photography not only as an aesthetic form but also as a multi-faceted historical and contemporary document of our world through exhibitions, education, outreach programs, and local collaborations.

Admission is free for members. Admission for not-yet members: $10.00
