In the market for some artwork created by local talents? You might want to drop by the 15th annual FABulous Arts Boutique at Art Center Sarasota this weekend.

Seventy-five artists in all, representing six area fine art and craft guilds, will be displaying and selling their work, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Thursday, March 2, Friday, March 3, and Saturday, March 4. There is no charge for admission.

Browsers can expect to find works in ceramics, decorative fiber, jewelry, wearable art, mixed-media and shell art. The boutique was the brainchild of Manasota Weavers Guild members Pat Fox and Kathie Hayes back in 2002; the event has now grown to include not only that guild but also the Florida West Coast Bead Society, Sarasota Shell Club, Surface Design Society of Sarasota; Southwest Art Yarn Guild and the Venetian Society of Basket Weavers as well.
