Hi Richard -- 'Noticed your shout-out about First Fridays. Please check out http://sarasota.anythingarts.com/forum/topics/call-to-artists-healers for details on the artists' co-op we are starting in downtown Sarasota.

Hi Richard ... here's a link to the Downtown Merchant's Association and they have the First Friday right at the top of the page - http://www.dmasarasota.com/
Seems the www.sarasota-arts.org site isn't working right now - that's the Sarasota Arts Council as you probably know. They've been going through an upheavel in recent times (as you know too) so this anythingarts.com site is GREAT - and much more proactive than the Arts Council in bringing those involved with The Arts together.
Perhaps you have a piece or two you'd like to donate to The Florida Orange Festival in December for our raffle? This event benefit Defeat Diabetes Foundation and if you look under Events on this site or my Blog - you will see information about "Mr. Diabetes" WALK of the US perimeter which has been an 8-year journey. The Florida Orange Festival is in celebration of his HOME STRETCH. We need all the help we can get in terms of volunteers, donated items for raffles, etc. Check it out if you have a chance - thanks! Judy
Richard, The Palm Avenue Arts Alliance, but their site seems down (see below). Lance and Tim at Madison Park would be the ones to speak with if I wanted info... they are really plugged in.

Hi Richard ... don't know of any Arts organization promoting First Friday - but I do believe the Downtown Merchant's Association handles this. I know one of our groups, The Arch, is to perform downtown the 1st Friday of October. Maybe we will see each other there. Judy
