Art Planner: Anthea Behm, Marc Chagall, and Wyland comes to St. Pete

Subjective Reality: Anthea Behm

Tampa feminist artist collective Cunsthaus was established one year ago by 14 women practiced in education, visual art, music, curation and writing. In celebration of their one-year anniversary, they're presenting "Mirror Lamp Hammer," a thought-provoking exhibition by Australian artist Anthea Behm. The exhibit is a photo-based series, yet there's no camera involved. Instead, Behm creates photograms, in which she exposes photographic paper to light, then hand-draws images on the paper using developer solution. The print then goes through the conventional darkroom process, resulting in a silver gelatin print. The concept of the show is some heady stuff, having to do with considering the ordinary things in the images that are usually taken for granted. Opening reception 7-10 p.m. Saturday at 4636 N Florida Ave. Next door at Tempus Projects, catch an artist talk by Joe Griffith, as well as the closing of Cuban exchange program artist Julio César Pérez Moracén.

The color of dreams: Marc Chagall at Selby Gardens

Among the many themes in Marc Chagall’s colorful paintings, nature was one. It's celebrated in an exhibition at Marie Selby Botanical Gardens in Sarasota. As the first botanical garden to exhibit Chagall's work, "The Color of Dreams" also marks the first time nature's influence on the artist is examined indepth. The exhibition features the masterwork painting The Lovers (1937), on loan from the Israel Museum, Jerusalem, along with two additional paintings loaned from a private collector that have not been publicly exhibited before. A glass house cathedral of plants has reproductions of Chagall's stained glass windows, and outdoor garden scenes are reminiscent of the French Riviera, where Chagall spent the latter part of his life. Ceramic vases owned by Chagall and archival photos round out the small but mighty exhibition. On display through July 31. 900 S. Palm Avenue. (941) 366-5731. selby.org.

    TAMPA — Tampa Repertory Theatre has always insisted on putting on plays that mean something. Several shows over the last couple of years have zeroed in on the social and cultural baggage that comes with being female (The Children's Hour, Silent Sky and Grounded come to mind). None of those …
