SARTQ, Art Center Sarasota, Print SARTQ Print Party

January 28 – March 05, 2016
Opening Reception: Thursday, January 28 • 5-8pm

Featuring small-scale, limited-edition prints by the 15 members of this dynamic local artist collective. This is SARTQ’s first all-print exhibition and it reflects their dedication to the medium. The 24” x 30” works are created using traditional and non-traditional print-making methods. Dustin Juengel, the curator of this show and Art Center Sarasota’s exhibitions curator says,

“The prints are unified through their common size and framing instead of turning the focus to the diversity of the SARTQ artists and their different printing styles and methods.”

SARTQ members include Elena De La Ville, Larry Forgard, Zachary Gilliland, Joni Younkins-Herzog, Tim Jaeger, Jeffery Cornwell, Cassia Kite, Andrew Long, Noelle McCleaf, Jenny Medved, Daniel Miller, Laine Nixon, Javier Rodriguez, Steven Strenk, and Natalya Swanson.

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.

ABOUT SARTQ

SARTQ, Sarasota’s local popular artist collective whose name underscores their connection to the region (a take-off on the area’s three letter airport code “SRQ”) was founded and formed in early 2008 by local artists Tim Jaeger and Joseph Arnegger under the observation that the Sarasota region boasted a large number of talented visual artists, yet only a small fraction were seen by the public, and the artist themselves were not actively engaged in dialogue and cooperation. Begun informally the collective quickly expanded and gained the attention of many local enthusiasts while exhibiting in multiple local rogue exhibitions and fairs including the SELECT Art Fair Art Basel Miami. After a brief two year hiatus, the now redesigned, 501 (c)3 aims to not only maintain a sustainable network of accomplished Sarasota/Manatee artists, manage an ambitious calendar of annual exhibitions and events, but also to create collaborations with local businesses, community, and performing arts organizations with a special effort to forge strong relationships with local schools. SARTQ events and exhibitions are suitable for all ages and accessible to everyone in the community.
