LARGO - The Gulf Coast Museum of Art announces the opening of "Sandy Winters: Pretexts & Subtexts" and "Carolina Sardi: Exquisite Tension," opening on Dec. 3 and continuing through Jan. 29, 2006.

An opening reception is planned on Friday, Dec. 2, 7 to 9 p.m., in the museum galleries. At 6:30 p.m. artist Sandy Winters will lead a gallery walk-through in the galleries. Admission is free for museum members and $10 for guests.

The work of New York artist Sandy Winters explores imagery associated with machinery and the natural world and utilizes a variety of materials, ranging from conté crayon and charcoal, to wood, paint, metals and found objects.

The exhibition, "Pretexts and Subtexts" features a site-specific installation and a number of oil paintings on both wood and metal. Winters received her masters of fine arts from Cornell University. She was a resident of Miami, Florida for seventeen years before moving to New York City where she has lived for the past fifteen years.

Carolina Sardi's sculptures convey maximum information through minimal use of form. For Sardi, the concept is as important as the execution and the notions of positive and negative space can easily become transposable.

While Sardi works in the medium of steel, her pieces convey both a delicacy and an organic sensibility, which reflect her keen interest in the simple interactions that often occur in life. Sardi offers the viewer a vision of the architectonic in her sculpture, communicating both the beauty of the form and the exquisite tension of the arrangement.

Sardi is an Argentinean sculptor established in Miami since 1995.

The GCMA's general hours of operation are Tuesday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.; Sunday, noon to 4 p.m.; and closed Monday. Admission prices are $5 adults; $4 seniors (over age 62); $3 students with valid identification; and free for children (10 and under) and museum members. On Saturdays from 10 a.m. to noon, admission is free. For information on membership, call 518-6833, ext. 200.

The museum is located in the Pinewood Cultural Park, 12211 Walsingham Road. Call 582-2200 or visit www.gulfcoastmuseum.org.
