There are two free art exhibitions in East Manatee that you should take a look at, while you can.
The Art Association of Palm-Aire is showcasing the work of nearly 50 artists everyday this week at the Palm-Aire Country Club, where the lobby has been turned into a gallery.
The exhibition runs through Sunday. I had the chance to see the work Tuesday and I was impressed by the quality and diversity. You'll see everything from paintings to needlepoint and sculpture.
Also,ComCenter is having a reception 9 a.m. -noon Saturday at 9040 Town Center Parkway, Lakewood Ranch. Free pastries and coffee will be served and the public is invited. The ComCenter exhibition, which includes work from artists affiliated with Art Center Sarasota, can also be seen Monday-Friday during regular business hours.
ComCenter represents a unique melding of the arts and business world.
