“The prints are unified through their common size and framing, directing the focus to the diversity of the SARTQ artists and their different printing styles and methods.” – Dustin Juengel, Curator

7th Annual Print Party!

SARTQ Print Party 2016

An annual event that gives the public a chance to interact with both art and artists. This year’s party will serve as an opportunity for the public to purchase a print created right before their eyes while meeting the members of SARTQ, enjoy music and food while viewing the multiple exhibitions of Art Center Sarasota.

From 3-7pm on February 13, SARTQ will hold its free screen-printing party at Art Center Sarasota. SARTQ’s sixth print party in March of 2015 drew nearly 1,500 people who brought shirts, skirts, placemats and everything in between to be screened live by the artists.

“We’re excited to partner with Art Center Sarasota this year for our annual print party,” says SARTQ co-founder, Tim Jaeger. “It’s a natural fit because we can get messy in the classroom and bring people together in the galleries for an entertaining afternoon and evening.”

Once again, each of the 15 artists have created an original design for the event. Attendees may bring their own clothing items such as t-shirts, pants, scarfs etc., though any item that can lie flat under the screen and will accept ink can be printed on. Choose your favorite design — or pick several! — and each print is just $5. The public is encouraged to be creative, with some particularly cute dog clothes, baby tees and handbags resulting from last year’s event. There will also be blank t-shirts on hand for purchase. This is a free, family friendly event.
