SARTQ: RED, February 10 – March 9, 2017

Palmetto Art Center
Opening Reception Friday, February 10 6-9pm
Regular Gallery Hours | Monday, Tuesday and Thursday Noon – 2PM

SARTQ: RED exhibition, will fill the beautiful Palmetto Art Center with glowing color. Whether scarlet, crimson, maroon, vermilion, berry, ruby, rose, burgundy, carmine, brick, or cerise – red is both satisfying and exciting. The strong feelings suggested by the color red – passionate love, blood and anger – are always stimulating!

Artists understand color and use it to great advantage – as Matisse famously said:

“A thimble full of red is redder than a bucketful.”

The 10 artists in the exhibition celebrate the many ways to see the color red. “Red can boost your energy, it exudes confidence and is life-affirming. In addition, this exhibition gives all art lovers something different to do with their sweethearts for their Valentine’s celebration,” says SARTQ co-founder Tim Jaeger.

The artwork in this group show includes printmaking, collage, drawing, video installation, sculpture and painting. In addition, FREE red silk screened prints will be made for the public right before their eyes while meeting the members of SARTQ. 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.

SARTQ: RED exhibition is open to the public with no admission fee. Cash bar and live music by Hunter Brown will be provided. Following the opening reception, the Palmetto Art Center gallery will be open Saturday, February 11th from 11AM – 1PM. Also, Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays, Noon – 2PM, and by appointment.

The 10 participating SARTQ artists include Jeffery Cornwell, Elena De La Ville, Zachary Gilliland, Tim Jaeger, Cassia Kite, Jenny Medved, Laine Nixon, Javier Rodriguez, Steven Strenk, and Jill Taffet

SARTQ: SMALL WORKS, July 29 — August 20, 2016

The [blank] slate gallery is proud to present its first group exhibition by Sarasota’s contemporary arts collective, SARTQ.

SARTQ: SMALL WORKS features about twenty-five pieces from twelve artists. This exhibition’s conception began when Tim Jaeger, SARTQ Executive Director, and Rae Ramos, [blank] slate gallery’s Associate Director, met on Ringling College’s campus discussing how to get the two fairly new art entities more exposure in the art’s scene in Sarasota and its surrounding areas.
[blank] slate gallery first opened their doors in late 2014 in the trendy Historic Burns Court neighborhood of Sarasota.  In 2016, the gallery moved to a larger space a block away to offer a more accessible location for the community and to expand its wonderful collection of modern and contemporary artwork from emerging and established artists http://www.blankslategallery.com and to include fine jewelry, artisan jewelry and designer fashion for men and women.

Ramos, who organized the exhibition, was familiar with most of SARTQ’s artists’ works in large scale.  “I wanted to see their works in small scale and if their aesthetics would change when working smaller.  I’ve seen some fascinating works that are out of the norm from the participating artists and we’re really excited to display them at the gallery.”

Artists participating: Jeffery CornwellElena De La VilleZachary GillilandJoni Younkins-Herzog,
Tim JaegerCassia KiteJenny Medved, Laine NixonVicky RandallJavier RodriguezSteven Strenk, and Jill Taffet.

SARTQ: SMALL WORKS will be on view July 29 through August 20, with an opening reception to meet the artists on Friday, July 29, 5:30-8:30pm.  Everyone is encouraged to attend.

SARTQ and the gallery asks for visitors and opening reception attendees to bring in a canned good that will be donated to a local foodbank.

Blank Slate Gallery is located at 538 south pineapple avenue, Sarasota, FL 34236 . For further information, please call 941.312.5700. For the official Facebook Event Page, please visit https://www.facebook.com/events/642978652533863/

SARTQ Print Party 2016

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.
