If you’ve ever been to a concert at venues like House of Blues and the Social, or watched a film at Enzian Theater, or bought vinyl at Park Ave CDs, you’ve most likely seen the graphic design work of the featured artists in this show. Graphic by Design sparks up a new arts season at Valencia Community College, but instead of showcasing works by students, the show’s curator, adjunct professor of photography Allan Maxwell (with help from graphic design professor Kristy Pennino), hand-selected a collection of pieces by seven notable Orlando designers. Maxwell aims to expose the juncture between graphic design and fine art, with works by concert poster-boys Steve Carsella and Thomas Scott, Lure Design’s Jeff Matz, self-proclaimed creative activist Julio Lima of Say It Loud, and wheat paste-styled André Greppi (a.k.a. Dres3), among others. Graphic by Design pushes beyond the eye-catching rock and movie posters and commercial branding ads widely recognized by these designers, while at the same time, offering a glimpse into the entertainment lifeline of our city. – Aimee Shea (6:30-8:30 p.m. at Anita S. Wooten Gallery, Valencia Community College East Campus, 701 N. Econlockhatchee Drive; free; 407-582-2289;
