"A lot of the works relate to figure drawing, and when you talk about drawing the human figure, you are telling the story through the human body."

[Home Shopping]  Shop, Sip and Gather at The Fox Mercantile
Emma Dannenfelser, emma@srqme.com

The Fox Mercantile on Anna Maria Island is the creative brain-child of Southern California native Ashley Petrone and has become the perfect whimsical escape from the day-to-day–a destination where visitors can sip an excellent cup of coffee while shopping a carefully curated selection of goods hand-picked by Petrone herself, or just stop by for a relaxing afternoon spent with a good book and pleasant company.

After moving to Anna Maria Island three years ago with her husband, Dino, and four children, with the hopes of giving the kids a slow and peaceful beach-town life, Petrone was initially hoping to open a coffee shop. That eventually turned into the creation of The Fox Mercantile, an online-only store that carried homeware, gifts and paper goods. “It really came from coffee at first, I just wanted really good coffee. And then I decided to open up a store and that started online. I had that for about a year and it kind of made sense to just marry the two together and create a store and coffee shop all in one,” Petrone says.

Plans for the future of a brick and mortar store and coffee shop fell into place when the old Sea Hagg store’s building became available on Anna Maria Island. The set-up of the property, with its dual indoor and outdoor spaces, made Petrone’s vision of a welcoming and warm gathering place for both locals and visitors possible.

The store officially opened on June 8th and now offers a vast variety of gifts, many of which are locally made and support Floridian vendors including artists, jewelry designers and, of course, coffee from Leatherback Roasters, which is based outside of Orlando. What makes The Fox Mercantile stand out is that the whole store is a carefully crafted collection of goods that can be effortlessly combined to make a cohesive gift, since every item is selected by Petrone herself. “It's all my favorite things and everything is curated in a way that it all goes together. It makes it really simple for a shopper to come in and make a table setting or make a gift for somebody.”

But the storefront is not based on trendy aesthetics and Instagram-worthy photo-opts alone. The core of Petron’s mission is to facilitate genuine hospitality for all who visit the Fox Mercantile store or coffee shop. “I wanted people to feel like they're not just getting coffee or shopping when they walk through our gate, because you can go anywhere and do that.” Petrone adds. “Lately, customer service has gone down the drain, so I just wanted us to be set apart in the way that when you come here, you just feel good. You’re having a whole experience.” Whether that means a conversation with a barista or getting advice from an employee within the store, The Fox Mercantile offers genuine connections to everyone who walks through the door.

[Italian Drawings]  500 Years of Italian Drawings Captivate Viewers at The Ringling
Laura Paquette, laura.paquette@srqme.com

When most people doodle during a meeting or sketch out a quick image during a game of Pictionary, they don’t ponder what will become of their finished works. Perhaps they’ll be tossed into the trash, or someone will save them, preserving the drawings for years to come. At The Ringling Museum, 500 Years of Italian Drawings from the Princeton University Art Museum invites guests to consider the role of the collector in safeguarding these pivotal art history building blocks.

The Ringling’s Ulla R. Searing Curator of Collections Sarah Cartwright encourages visitors to view Italian Drawings alongside the Guercino’s Friar with A Gold Earring: Fra Bonaventura Bisi, Painter and Art Dealer exhibition, which focuses on Fra Bonaventura Bisi. Bisi facilitated the collection of art for important figures like the Dukes of Modena and Leopoldo de’ Medici. Stepping into Bisi’s world allows guests to understand why he prioritized collecting drawings, like those in the Italian Drawings exhibition.

“The collection covers 500 years of Italian drawings with a concentration on the 16th and 17th centuries,” says Cartwright. “Through the mid-fifteenth century, aspiring artists were instructed to make copies after drawings in a model-book, a compendium of motifs, human figures, flora and fauna, passed from one generation to another, ready to be inserted into paintings or illuminated manuscripts,” reads the exhibit’s walk text. Like children’s fashion design toys, in which the user rubs their selection of textured fashion plates to transfer a pre-made template onto paper, this process overlooked artists’ exploration of individual expression. This pattern began to change as artists took inspiration from other sources like prints, plaster casts and ancient sculptures, and drawing focused more on celebrating the hand of each artist who used the medium to achieve certain goals. “Some drawings were sketches of ideas and were taken further to become finished drawings. Some nailed down composition and shading and might have been presented to a patron. Others are working drawings, used to transfer to other mediums,” Cartwright adds. “They support composition and disegno.” Disegno is the intersection of drawing and design, where the mental process of conjuring up and developing an idea meets the practice of executing it in a physical medium.

Through disegno, artists like Guercino, Amadeo Modigliani and Michelangelo, all featured at Ringling, honed their craft. Many works in the exhibition focus on the human figure. Drawing allowed artists to explore how the human body expresses various emotions which the works reflect, urging the viewer to consider how the artist might have conceptualized their idea and determined the best way to showcase it on paper. “People still draw on paper. Most people doodle on notepads at work or draw at school. We know what it’s like to have a pen and paper, which is what the artists were doing. It’s a basic human thing to make marks on paper,” Cartwright says. “A lot of the works relate to figure drawing, and when you talk about drawing the human figure, you’re telling the story through the human body. People can relate to that because that’s the world we live in.”

500 Years of Italian Drawings from the Princeton University Art Museum is on view at The Ringling through January 21, 2024. The John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art, 5401 Bay Shore Rd., Sarasota, 941-359-5700, ringling.org.

[Recognition]  Music Compound Gathers for Team Building and Staff Awards

The team members from Music Compound's Sarasota and Bradenton locations gathered in late September for the 2023 Music Compound Awards and Retreat. This is an event that Music Compound, led by owner Jenny Townsend, hosts annually to celebrate its team members' efforts and reinforce their commitment to the company's mission – "Inspire. Collaborate. Educate." – and community. Nearly all of Music Compound's 34 team members attended the event, which included team building (and fun) at Escape Rooms Unlocked and lunch at Djonisi's Family Restaurant. During the event, Music Compound leaders acknowledged milestones such as the surging book-reading totals through the Rock Your Summer Reading initiative, the company's new and/or expanded programs, and new hires. Leaders also shared ideas for new potential words of the year to replace last year's word, "quality"; after a company-wide vote, the word “believe” was selected as the word for the coming year. Additionally, every team member shared their own, personal "A-ha!" moments and highlighted a fellow staff member or two who contributed to their success and well-being this past year. "We have found that having a unifying and inspirational word guides and unites our team," said Townsend. "I am grateful every day for the opportunity to work with our incredible staff and especially proud of this year’s worthy honorees."
