Downtown Tampa is going to be a lot more colorful this month when local artists Ari Robinson and Timothy Raines light up the Aloft Tampa Downtown Hotel with their artwork during the Aloft Art Show on Friday, October 20th. The fun continues later this month at Aloft when the hotel casts a spell with their Haunted Hotel IV costume party event on October 28th.   

Aloft Art Show To Feature Ari Robinson and Timothy Raines: Friday, October 20th, 6-10 p.m.  

Downtown Tampa's hip Aloft Tampa Downtown Hotel is hosting an art show this Friday, October 20th featuring two of our area's top artists, Ari Robinson and Timothy Raines.  Ari Robinson is a mixed media artist residing in St Petersburg, Florida with a BFA in painting and sculptures.  Her artistic approach is driven by spontaneity using form and color. Ari Robinson uses her skilled sense of color and space to establish the course for each piece, then adds layers until the work feels grounded yet fluid. Color is a critical component in her compositions as it evokes feeling.

The work of Timothy Raines captures icons of luxury and a sporting lifestyle with dramatic tone; Timothy creates art designed to evoke a sense of energy. An award-winning artist from the early age of six, he's received multiple awards for competition. The focus of Tim's artwork hones in on iconic brands representing more than materialism alone. One of our favorite Raines pieces can be found inside the entrance to One Progress Plaza in Downtown Tampa. That's all we will spill; it's worth a visit!  

The Art Show at Aloft will feature artwork for sale, live music, and drink specials from the iconic  W XYZ Bar located inside the hotel, on the waterfront. The event runs from 6-10 p.m. 

Haunted Hotel IV: October 28th, 8 p.m. - 2 a.m.
