In addition to providing you with a directory of the amazing arts and culture organizations, performances, and events throughout the year, the Guide also features a piece of local art on the cover.

This year’s cover, “Petunia No. 2” was produced by Afstad& Productions as part of the exhibit Reimagining, Georgia O’Keeffe & Alfred Stieglitz: 2018.

O’Keeffe and Stieglitz were revolutionaries who expanded the boundaries of art. What would they do if they were alive today?

Sarasota’s Alfstad& Contemporary shared this inquiry with a group of artists and invited them to create works inspired by the legendary figures. Reimagining Georgia O’Keeffe and Alfred Stieglitz: 2018 presents thirty pieces produced in Alfstad&’s printmaking studio. Artwork by Betsy Cameron, Robert Doyon, Kevin Hern, Grace Howl and Roberto Trevino, as well as Alfstad&’s original prints, are reminiscent of O’Keeffe’s flower and architectural motifs as well as Stieglitz’s passion for portraiture.
