T

he old proverb says that every cloud has a silver lining. The pandemic and other events during 2020 have certainly presented all of us with clouds and challenges that we could not have imagined only a few short months ago.Â

The arts and cultural community in Sarasota County is using this time wisely to create a magnificent silver lining for you when you are able to visit us again, and we are able to open our doors and welcome our patrons and new friends. Arts and culture are at the very core of this magnificent community. All of our performing and presenting organizations are busy creating virtual experiences and upgrading their facilities in anticipation of opening again when it is safe to do so. Many of our cultural facilities, including our museums, gardens and aquariums are open and operating under modified conditions to make sure your visit is safe and enjoyable.  This guide will help you learn about the many cultural treasures that are here for you and your family. Should you need additional information or assistance of any kind, please contact our staff at the Arts and Cultural Alliance. Stay healthy and please visit us as soon as you can! Sincerely, Jim Shirley Executive Director

ON THE COVER “Summer Wind” by

Candace Knapp

C

andace Knapp earned a BFA in sculpture from the Cleveland Institute of Art and an MFA from the University of Illinois. She’s had installations at the Brevard Art Museum (later named Foosaner Art Museum), Florida Museum for Women Artists, Florida Craftsmen Gallery and the Morean Art Center in St. Petersburg, and the Mount Dora Center for the Arts. Her work is in the permanent collection of the Sanyi Wood Sculpture Museum in Sanyi, Taiwan, and also in the Memphis Brooks Museum of Art. candaceknapp.com

“There are so many things I have done over the years—carved statues; made furniture for churches as a business with my husband Bjorn; had exhibitions in galleries and museums; made public art pieces; wrote a book of poetry, and dabbled in photography. Recently I have left sculpture to pursue painting, but I can’t really predict what will come next.”
