Bayshore High showcases shoes as art

Now that we've had a chance to enjoy the holiday and reflect on the many things we are thankful for this season - be it friends, family, job, etc. - it's time to jump back into the swing of things and see what's going on locally in the art and entertainment world.

This week, beginning Wednesday, will be a fundraiser exhibit given by the students of Bayshore High School and will include works by former student Tyrell Waiters who has been featured in the Herald several times for his colorful works. The exhibit, held at John Carl Spa and Salon, is called Best Foot Forward, Shoes as Objects D'Art where regular shoes will be transformed into funky and whimsical pieces of art. Themes include Christmas, Mardi Gras, Film Festival, games and more.

The spa, which has been known to feature special art work, is at 1345 Second St, Sarasota. An opening reception will be from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Wednesday. Proceeds will benefit the Bayshore High Visual Arts Department.

For more information, call 330-8000.
