Suitable for framing — or wearing. Artistic endeavors on cloth are in focus at the "T-Party," where local artists and designers will sell small-run, printed T-shirts and new lines at Nu'uanu Gallery at Marks Garage, part of the Honolulu Arts District's Spring Sidewalk Sale.

Some of the proceeds from the "T-Party" will go to the Boys & Girls Club of Hawai'i. Other artwork will be available, too.

And what's likely to be found at the other two dozen spots in the sidewalk sale? More art, collectibles, theater sets, vintage furniture, household items and clothing. Think of it as a treasure hunt.

Among those participating: Art Board, The ARTS at Marks Garage, Bad Sushi, Bonnie's Closet, Hanks Cafe, InTo, Jungle Gems, Kim Taylor Reece, Louis Pohl Gallery, MixMix, Pacific Traditions, Pegge Hopper Gallery, The Studio of Roy Venters, Tea at 1024 and Zaney's.￿
