When you visit Beso Del Sol Resort, you want to return home with great memories and hopefully some lovely souvenirs from your trip.
We’ve written many times about the vital fine arts scene in Dunedin, and the Stirling Art Studios & Gallery (SASG) is another piece of that scene you don’t want to miss. You may just find the perfect piece of art that will also forever remind you of your Dunedin vacation.
SASG is a collective of about 15 artists and 10 working studios. We were able to connect with one of those artists to learn more about the SASG experience.
Margaret Modjeski, SASG Studio Artist “Stirling is a welcoming place with artists who love to meet and share their art with visitors! Stirling opens its doors to artists or art groups who would like to hold art exhibits, and artists enjoy the opportunity to show their work at a gallery. Stirling also has exhibits that benefit local charities such as the House of Mercy and Encouragement as well as Dunedin Doggie Rescue.”
Stroll Down Penny Lane
Beatles fans have another reason to visit SASG. It is home to Penny Lane – The Ultimate Beatles Collection, an extensive collection of Beatles memorabilia. The exhibit is curated by Colin Bissett who grew up in Liverpool, England, and enjoyed seeing the Beatles perform in the early sixties before they became a world-wide phenomenon.
Another “small” thing worth mentioning is the Miniature Art Society of Florida, headquartered at SASG. If you’ve never seen miniature art it’s something to behold – the finest of detail captured in the tiniest of mediums is truly amazing.
Margaret also notes SASG is a great place to both browse and buy.
“Stirling Art Studios & Gallery is a Dunedin art destination you won’t want to miss. Where else in Florida can you find 15 artists-in-residence along with a new exhibit every month? Bring home a dunes watercolor, a quirky original, an abstract expressing emotion, oils, or pastels of coastal Florida scenes.”
You can visit SASG at 730 Broadway in downtown Dunedin, Monday through Friday 11 a.m. – 4 p.m., Saturdays 11 a.m. – 3 p.m.
In addition, SASG has a monthly reception every second Friday of the month from 5:30 – 8:30 p.m., in conjunction with the 2nd Friday Dunedin/Night on the Town event.
On your next visit to Beso Del Sol Resort, enjoy a cozy, welcoming experience at Stirling Art Studios & Gallery, and perhaps even take home a little piece of Florida.
