DUNEDIN – The Dunedin Fine Art Center is referring to its upcoming fringe art festival as the “IT Weekend,” a “super-fecta of events” which will include Contain It!, Trashy Treasures, Eat It! and Brew It!

The grouping of events runs for just one evening and one day: Friday and Saturday, Feb. 21-22, at Dunedin Fine Art Center, 1143 Michigan Blvd., Dunedin.

The fun will kick off Friday, Feb. 21, 6 p.m., with “another legendary DFAC party,” according to a press release. The event will feature craft brews, live music by Nancy RayGuns and, of course, all of that incredible food.

Contain It!, a multi-media installation fair, showcases the work of artists who have reworked the interior of PODS to reflect their unique take on the space.

“The idea is to have someone step inside each POD and feel transported into the artist’s imagination,” said George Ann Bissett, DFAC’s executive director.

This year’s presentation is being curated by Christine Renc-Carter. Featured container artists will include Nicole Abbett, Paula “Pollyzoom” Allen, Nathan Beard, Theo Georgiou, Moses Hensley, Shane Hoffman along with three students, Barbara Hubbard along with two students, Wes Roos, Kumpa Tawornprom and Eric Voorhis. There also will be a special installation by last year’s people’s choice winner, Vicky Block.

Trashy Treasures is considered the Tampa Bay area’s most loved art garage sale. People donate art works that they’ve perhaps grown tired of, and art supplies they no longer need to DFAC. The center then offers a select group for sale by silent auction for the event Friday evening, and then prices the rest of it to sell on a first-come first-served garage sale basis on Saturday, Feb. 22.

“The addition of Eat It! a few years ago made the event a tasty triple-header,” said Ken Hannon, DFAC’s associate executive director.

Food trucks for this year’s Eat It! will include DFAC’s own Stephen Decaire’s temporary Palm Cafe on Wheels, George Tinney BBQ and more.

This year, DFAC – never being an organization to rest on their laurels for too long – is adding a craft beer component to the festivities. They’re calling Brew It!

Admission to the Friday night party is $5 while the exhibition will be open free to the public, Saturday, Feb. 22, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
