James Michaels: An American Pop Life

November 17, 2018 – March 3, 2019

It’s not all Western at the James Museum! Our second special exhibition features the Pop Expressionist and Painterly Realism paintings of Tampa Bay artist James Michaels. Inspired by popular culture, childhood memories, and life experiences, Michaels’ colorful canvases are visually bold and boldly personal. Included in his works are art history references alongside depictions of classic toys and cartoons, showing his range of contrasting influences. This one-man exhibition also showcases Michaels’ ability and vision to work in a variety of styles over his decades-long career.
