Art Center Sarasota presents Only in Sarasota: Prints by John Pirman, March 4-9, 2019. The exhibit features 27 archival pigment prints of Pirman’s renderings of Sarasota architecture, people and places, many of which originally have appeared in his monthly column for this magazine, called “Only in Sarasota.” A limited edition run of the prints, as well as a few specially created for the exhibit, will be available for purchase in limited editions. An opening reception with Pirman will take place Monday, March 4, from 5-7 p.m., and is free to the public.  

Pirman, who also teaches in Ringling College of Art and Design's Continuing Studies department, says his designs are “architectural because they are based on geometry. I like to let what is in the image fuse with the background. For me, it’s about evoking a feeling more than representing a particular image. When you subtract details from an image, you give it a kind of symbolic power.”
