Dunedin Artist, Theodosia A. G. Tamborlane (“Theo”), presents a new exhibition of her paintings, “My World: From New York to Carrollwood,” at the Carrollwood Cultural Center, 4537 Lowell Road, Tampa, beginning March 30, 2022. This exhibition will be shown until May 23 with access during the Cultural Center’s regular hours of Mondays through Fridays, 9 a.m.-6 p.m., and Saturdays, 9 a.m.–noon. In addition, there will be two evening receptions open to the public on April 8 and May 13 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
Paintings presented in this exhibition are from eight different series of works Theo created over the past twelve years when she worked in New York, New Jersey, and Dunedin. Each oil painting has a clear theme reflecting Theo’s life experiences as an artist and an attorney.
As predominately an abstract artist and illustrator, her works use dynamic colors and combine gestural movements with geometric lines and forms in a deliberative yet free-spirited process. Her series of paintings are provocative. She challenges viewers to think beyond the image as presented on canvas to life as they have lived it and continue to live it today. Significantly, Theo is proud that a portrait she painted of Vice President Kamala Harris was accepted by her last year.
Theo studied at the Art Students League and the School of Visual Arts in New York City and has exhibited her works in over 160 exhibitions in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Florida since 2008, including a solo show, “City Scapes and Cast Shadows,” at the Morean Art Center in St. Petersburg in 2021. She has also donated over 140 of her paintings from different series to health care and educational foundations in New Jersey and Florida, including the Hillsborough Community College in Tampa. She has also founded the “Uncommon Artists” group in Pinellas County. She is a member of the Florida Professional Association of Visual Artists. Each year her work is featured in multiple national art magazines.
Her studio is located in Dunedin, and she welcomes visits by appointment.
