Teeth-chattering Northerners might be shopping in a 30-degree chill, but ArtCenter/South Florida is decked out for a summer bazaar. Today from 2:00 to 9:00 outside ArtCenters 800 Lincoln Rd. gallery, ArtShop: Pop In, Pop Up, Pop Buy! offers art lovers and fashionistas an alfresco shopping experience celebrating the seventeenth-annual Art Miami Contemporary Art Fair. The chic outdoor trading post is pitching a curated selection of trendsetting vacation essentials, clothing, and accessories from Diego Garcia Authentic Goods. Founded by a pair of shopping chums -- Erica Kennedy and Aisha Salmon -- Diego Garcia is a traveling trunk show featuring brightly colored tunics, tie-dyed dresses, vintage Levis miniskirts, and Mexican market bags. The bargain-cool hunters scour the globe for unusual finds and peddle their wares at private invitation-only sales.
The work of Gotta Get Up mixed-media collage artist Jon Tomlinson will also be featured as a blue-light special during the festivities. He uses materials like candy wrappers, cigarette packages, and other recycled stuff to create provocative Afro-centric works in what he calls a painting with paper style. The work of ArtCenters resident artists will also be available for purchase during the postholiday sale.
