The Dunedin Fine Art Center borrows a page from Art Basel Miami, the ultracool annual show and sale in South Beach, with "Contain It!" Friday and Saturday. Eleven artists will use PODs (you know, those storage containers) as their canvases, turning the interiors into conceptual galleries. Participating artists are Yoko Nogami, Allen Hampton, April Childers, Stephen (AG) Carey, Kim Michelle Coakley, Rocky Bridges, Jason Leigh, Jeff Whipple, Brandon McLean, Christine Renc-Carter and Victoria Block.
The center also will have "Trashy Treasures," its yearly art thrift sale with donated works and supplies.
The choicest items will be offered at a party and silent auction Friday beginning at 7 p.m. Admission is $10 with refreshments and entertainment. The big sale on Saturday, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., is free, as is admission to the artists' containers.
