[Arts + Culture]  GAZE Modern Rebrands as PS340 and Opens with Jeffrey Schwartz Exhibition
Andrew Fabian, andrew.fabian@srqme.com

The problem with upward career trajectories is that they leave in their wake a flurry of administrative paper trails. One such flurry meant that when Tim Jaeger got promoted to Director and Chief Curator of RCAD’s myriad galleries and exhibitions, he temporarily lost his grip on GAZE Modern, the local- and community-centric gallery space that operates rent-free out of the Arcos building on Fruitville Road. “I had to officially resign from GAZE,” he says, but Frameworks Development, the builders behind Arcos, still wanted Jaeger to curate the space and fulfill its original vision. “It maybe sounds a bit more dramatic than it actually was,” he says, “but really, all we had to do was rename the space and sign a new deal.” Simple enough.

The new name: PS340. PS stands for “project space” (not postscript) and 340 is the address, but the simplicity of the gallery’s new name belies the grand abstraction of its mission. “We still want to serve as an incubator space for students to learn about the exhibition process,” says Jaeger, and in this way, teach budding artists how to engage with the community. Of course, communication is a two-way street, so the space also serves as a way for the community to engage with the college—and the first line of conversation between the Sarasota arts community and PS340 will focus on the work of Jeffrey Schwartz. 

Schwartz is another star on the rise within RCAD and now serves the school as the Associate VP for Academic Affairs and Dean of Undergraduate Studies. But, he never strays too far from his creative roots. PS340 will host an exhibition of his work called “Zwart en Wit” (black and white in Dutch), a collection that features grayscale illustrations on paper and collaged paper done in pen, ink and watercolor. The objects explored are all local and predominately mid-century architectural features that may be quite familiar to Sarasota locals.

One such illustration features the restored Scott Building on Orange and Morrill that now houses CFAS. Schwartz’s attention to lighting and perspective help to sculpt the image in a way that does justice to its unique angles and hard lines. It appears both substantive and ethereal all at once, and the simplicity of the materials used helps to spotlight just how much can be said by an artist with such a trained hand and eye. Another, more readily recognizable illustration features a nighttime scene of Hob Nob diner on Washington Blvd. in all of its gaudy neon glory. “He has a lot of love for the objects in his work,” says Jaeger, “and it shows in the way he celebrates these seemingly common things.”

The collection altogether celebrates Sarasota, a perfect throughline for the freshly rebranded gallery space on Fruitville and Central. The exhibition runs through February 29th and is open to the public.

PS – Arcos residents get a discount on any of the works for sale.

[Heathcare]  Manatee Memorial Hospital First on the Florida West Coast To Offer Procedure to Help Kidney Dialysis Patients

Manatee Memorial Hospital became the first hospital on the Florida West Coast to perform a new procedure on January 15, 2020 in its Cath Lab, using the WavelinQ™ 4 French (4F) EndoAVF System (WavelinQ), a device that offers a new non-surgical way to prepare patients for kidney dialysis. General Surgeons, Jenna Kazil, MD and Howard Hermans, MD, will be performing this outpatient, non-surgical procedure at the hospital. The WavelinQ uses radio frequency (RF), to create the connection between a vein and artery, called a fistula, which is an important step in dialysis treatment for patients. Developed by BD Bard, this endo AVF (arteriovenous fistula) procedure marks the first major advancement in fistula creation in the last 50 years. A fistula provides for access to the bloodstream so that blood may be removed from the body, cleansed in a hemodialysis machine and returned to the body for patients experiencing kidney failure. This new technology replaces the need for open surgery to create the fistula, by effectively fusing the artery and vein using a burst of RF energy to create the connection between the blood vessels. Before this technology, three traditional methods of treatment existed: inserting an external catheter near the heart; connecting an artificial tube, or shunt, between the artery and vein; and connecting an artery and vein directly via open surgery.

The outpatient procedure is performed by inserting two thin, flexible, magnetic catheters into an artery and vein in the arm through a small puncture or incision which is far smaller than traditional surgical incisions. The WavelinQ increases procedural flexibility for physicians while reducing risk of scarring or arm disfigurement for patients compared to open surgical arteriovenous fistula creation. “When we learned about the WavelinQ, we immediately wanted to offer this procedure to our community’s kidney dialysis patients. Manatee Memorial Hospital is proud to be the first hospital to offer this less invasive and non-surgical procedure in the area,” said Kevin DiLallo, CEO, Manatee Memorial Hospital.

[SOON]  MUSEUM: Manuel Álvarez Bravo: Specters and Parables , December 8 – March 1

Born and raised in Mexico City, where he spent most of his career, Manuel Álvarez Bravo (Mexican, 1902-2002) was one of the most important figures in 20th century Latin American photography. Although he took art classes at the Academy of San Carlos, his photography was mostly self-taught, but he was savvy to the emerging international artistic avant-garde. Considered to be one of the founders of modern photography, his work extends from the late 1920s to the 1900s. He was a key figure from the period following the Mexican Revolution—often called the Mexican Renaissance—in which arts and literature flourished. This “Renaissance” owed to the happy—though not always tranquil—marriage between a desire for modernization and the search for an authentic national identity with Mexican roots, in which archaeology, history and ethnology played an important role. Support for this exhibition has been provided, in part, by the Ringling Endowment at the Florida State University Foundation. Paid for in part by Sarasota County Tourist Development Tax Revenues.

[SOON]  MUSEUM: Syd Solomon: Concealed and Revealed , December 15 – April 26

Concealed and Revealed offers a unique selection of paintings by the artist, along with numerous objects from the Solomon Archive on view for the first time. Syd Solomon (American, 1917-2004) described himself as an “Abstract Impressionist” alluding to the fact that his work infused impressionism into the processes, scale and concepts of Abstract Expressionism. Solomon moved to Sarasota in 1946 with his wife Annie. His was the first work of contemporary art to be collected by The Ringling in 1962. His paintings were greatly influenced by climatic factors and reveal a fascination and concern for Florida’s aquatic environment. Solomon incorporated his experience as a camouflage designer during World War II into his painting. It is not well-known that he was also an accomplished graphic artist, who in his early years designed commercial signage for prominent hotels and businesses in Sarasota. Like his work in camouflage, Solomon’s calligraphic skill was essential to the development of his later gestural abstraction.

Syd Solomon: Concealed and Revealed is presented in partnership with the Estate of Syd Solomon and is accompanied by a 96-page publication with essays by former curator at The Ringling Michael Auping, George S. Bolge, Dr. Gail Levin, and Mike Solomon. The exhibition will include artworks from private collections and The Ringling’s permanent collection.
