The venerable Art Center Sarasota, founded in 1926, doesn't live in its past. Current shows are "Unconventional Inventions" with kinetic sculpture by NewGate School and Out-of-Door Academy students; "Black Box Projects: Summation," work by MFA candidates at the University of South Florida; "Perspectives," an all-media show juried by Chris Jones of the Ringling Museum and Diane Shelly of Florida Craftsmen, and "Vanishing," curated by Mark Ormond, from the Lemur Conservation Foundation collection. This one caught my eye. It's a Myakka-based organization dedicated to the preservation and conservation of Madagascar lemurs, a lovely little primate made internationally beloved by that animated movie. Shown here is a work by Alexis Rockman. All continue through June 27. The center, 707 N Tamiami Trail, Sarasota, is open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Saturday. Free. artsarasota.org; (941) 365-2032.

  3. Five ideas for cooking with ground turkey

    Cooking

    I rarely cook with ground beef. Ground turkey became the go-to ground protein in my kitchen years ago. As meats go, it's pretty ideal: not a ton of raw meat juices, easy enough to cook in a pinch, more flavor than ground chicken. I sub turkey in for just about any recipe that calls for ground beef, except on …
