Salon: Home of Leslie Butterfield

Salon: Home of Leslie Butterfield

An Arts Advocates members-only event.

Designed by Carl Abbott - an original member of the Sarasota Schooof Architecture - for Leslie Butterfield and her family, this unique home was completed in 2015 in collaboration with the Butterfields to create their dream home. The result is a space where they live, dine and entertain outdoors, launch their kayaks on the north end of Siesta Key, and enjoy sweeping views of the waters surrounding the Key.

Leslie will lead us on a tour of the home and discuss the collaboration and process of the design, followed by a viewing of artwork by both Leslie and other artists.

Continuing the theme of collaboration, we will be treated to the latest creation for Art in Common Places, the non-profit founded by Leslie, Teresa Carson, and Cynthia Burnell. A series of broadsides, combining an image and a poem, are displayed in public places throughout Sarasota, designed to resonate with viewers on both emotional and intellectual levels. Glenn Schudel, a writer and professor at Ringling College, and Laine Nixon, local visual artist, will discuss their Art in Common Places piece, Revision, and how they worked together to produce it.

Address and parking instructions will be provided to those who register.
