The ladies of A/K/Art Consulting (pictured above) plan a two-day art sale 10am-4pm Saturday and Sunday, April 21-22, at the Say It Loud/Orange Studio on Mills. (And yes, Orlando, THERE WILL BE FOOD TRUCKS. We know you don't go anywhere anymore unless there's a taco within arm's reach.)

Says Alya Poplawsky: "During these difficult economic times we designed this event with both artist and buyer in mind, providing artists a venue and exposure for their artwork as well as providing buyers with affordable, original artwork."

Anyway, buyers, we'll have more info for you as the event approaches. But artists, if you'd like to submit work for consideration, contact to get a copy of the form via email, or copy and paste the form below and mail to P.O. Box 2674, Winter Park, FL 32790.
