Hot ticket: Objects of art affection

Tactile is the word that comes to mind when describing the work in two exhibitions opening Saturday at Florida Craftsmen Gallery, 501 Central Ave., St. Petersburg. Though touchy-feely, they're not. John Penrod's turned wood vessels and objects, such as the one above, have a cerebral serenity while begging to be stroked and held. Rocky Bridges' mixed-media work, usually incorporating found objects, plays with your mind in more fun-house ways. Both exhibitions are on view through Oct. 22 and are part of the Downtown Arts Association Art Walk on Saturday. Regular gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday. An opening reception, free to the public, is 6 to 8 p.m. Friday. (727) 821-7391.
