Love the beach? Two styles of beachy art on display at Leslie Curran Gallery

Above and Beyond: Sarah Hull and Catherine Woods

The Leslie Curran Gallery has a strong history of putting on dual exhibitions of artists whose work fits beautifully together. Above and Beyond, featuring Sarah Hull's paintings and Catherine Woods' glass sculptures, follows suit. Hull's paintings present beach scenes from a bird's-eye view, showing the tops of beach umbrellas and people as little dots in the water. Woods, known for her large public art installations, brings her signature cast and laminated glass sculptures, with the geometric patterns of soft color that not only complement Hull's paintings, but also take on the sparking quality of sunlight on water, evoking the beach. Mingle with the artists while you view their work at a free reception from 6 to 9 p.m. Saturday. 1431 Central Ave. (727) 898-6061.

Call and Response: Summer Show

It's always fun to visit artists' studios and see what they're working on. Stirling Art Studio in Dunedin is an active group of artists who put on exhibitions regularly. For their summer show, a call was put out, and the response was overwhelming: They received more than 100 entries. The artists' reception happens Friday, from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. The exhibition features 2-D and 3-D works, which will be juried and awards will be given. It's an opportunity to discover new artists that a call invariably brings out. The exhibit will remain on display throughout August. Free. 730 Broadway. (727) 433-1420.
