Photo Gallery: Third Annual S/ART/Q Print Party

S/ART/Q hosted its third annual Print Party at the HuB on Saturday, drawing out hundreds for an evening full of art, music, and fashion.

T-shirts, vests, pillowcases and handbags were only a handful of the textiles that attendees of S/ART/Q's third annual Print Party brought out to the Rosemary District's "business incubator," the HuB, on Saturday.

The art collective, which derives its name from Sarasota's three-letter airport code, SRQ, throws the screen-printing party every year to raise money for future S/ART/Q shows and events.

The collective was formed in late 2008, and currently consists of 8 artists: Joseph Arnegger, Brian Haverlock, Tim Jaeger, Daniel Miller, Daniel Perales, Jeff Schwartz, Nathan Skiles, Sabrina Small and Tom Stephens.

For $5 per item, event attendees could have original designs created by S/ART/Q artists printed on any item that would lay flat and accept ink.

Dozens at a time gathered in the HuB's spacious interior to get their items screen-printed while DJ Brian Boyd kept the vinyl spinning.

Outside, kids had a chance to make their own stencil creations and enjoy Hawaiian shaved ice from Keueke's Ice, while Shamrock Pub's Derek Anderson kept the cold brews flowing for the 21+ crowd.

“It is with the generous support of the community that S/ART/Q continues to provide unique and engaging arts experiences for Sarasota in 2011. The [Print Party] is another great opportunity for people to have fun and meet the S/ART/Q artists,” said S/ART/Q president and co-founder, Tim Jaeger, in a press release publicizing the event.
