s/ART/q followed up this summer’s blockbuster, T-shirt screen-printing event with a less raucous, but no less impressive, exhibit of art Nov. 6 and Nov. 7, in downtown Sarasota.
The new artists group transformed the former DK Vogue furniture store on State Street into a contemporary-art gallery filled with work by Jeff Schwartz, Daniel Perales, Joseph Patrick Arnegger, Tim Jaeger, Tobey Albright, Ricky Otto, Brandon Maupin, Sabrina Small, Tom Stephens, David Piurek, Nathan Skiles, Brian Haverlock, Daniel Miller and James Evans.
At a special preview for private collectors Nov. 5, the group sold four pieces of work before the doors even opened.
“It’s been a dream,” said painter and cofounder Arnegger, who said that he spent 48 hours straight jazzing up the two-story temporary gallery for the exhibit.
The group plans to host another T-shirt screen-printing event in December and is currently combing the city for possible gallery space for an exhibit this spring.

Food and fun
The Lakewood Ranch Business Alliance and its Young Leaders Alliance have something to talk about: the organizations collected 764 pounds of nonperishable food and $1,295 cash to benefit The Food Bank of Manatee/Meals on Wheels PLUS.
River Club’s Cheryl Kaufman says she’s still pinching herself.
A little “Ho! Ho! Ho!” can go a long way this holiday season.
