Not So Easy Target
by Ryan Prado

"If you need a little sunlight this weekend, Ybor is putting on an Artwalk on Saturday (8/2) through all of its galleries. And it's free! If you only have time to check out one, I'd recommend the Ritz. They're hosting the Square One Rocks! Art Exhibit, which is playing host to a whole bunch of talented and unique artists. Square One never disappoints."
