Tampa, FL (May 1st, 2008) – GO! A Square One Art, Fashion & Music Showcase will take place on Saturday, May 31st, 2008 at The RITZ Ybor located at 1503 N 7th Ave in the Ybor City district.

GO! is the second event organized by the Square One Productions team headed by Gary Randall and Okesene Tilo. The event will showcase the Adrian Rand "Extracelestial" Fashion Show choreographed by the Bella Danza Dance Company, the Tragik Designs fashion show, performances by local musicians, and the works of over 80 local Bay Area artists. All artwork and designs will be available for purchase by the public with a percentage of all sales going towards the local charity Central Park Village Youth Services, Inc.

"After the amazing turnout for our first event, the Square One Art Exhibit, there was an overwhelming demand to produce another art and fashion event in Ybor City," says Gary Randall, executive director for Square Productions and fashion designer for Adrian Rand Couture. "There were numerous people in attendance who rarely have the opportunity to witness how amazing Ybor City truly is."

With crime rate down five consecutive years and new businesses thriving, the historic Ybor City appears to be experiencing a rebirth.


The RITZ Ybor Renovations

Okesene Tilo, public relations director for Square One Productions adds, "Most Tampa residents aren't too familiar with the history behind the buildings in Ybor City, especially The RITZ Ybor. With their recent restoration & renovation projects, it was only natural for Square One to align with The RITZ in helping to establish Ybor City as the art, fashion and culture capital of Tampa."

Gary and Okesene both point out GO! being free to attend and open to all ages as a way to welcome all crowds.

"There is no long line or wait to attend our show. There is no nightclub atmosphere to disillusion anyone from attending," adds Gary. "This is an event in Ybor City strictly about creative expression where everyone is welcomed to attend."

"The reason we named this event GO! is not solely because it happens to be the first initial of mine and Gary's first names," adds Okesene. "The name GO! represents the movement that Square One Productions is taking in defining the local arts scene as an identifiable force. Additionally, the name GO! represents the entire movement to establish Ybor City as a place of free expression and creativity."

GO! A Square One Art, Fashion & Music Showcase is open to the general public, all ages, and is free to attend. Doors open at 7 p.m. and the event will last until midnight. There will be a voting contest with cash prizes for the highest-ranked artists held at the event, as well as prize drawings for the general public. Cash bars will be available for patrons over the age of 21. GO! is being sponsored by The RITZ Ybor, the Italian Club of Tampa, Central Park Village Youth Services, Inc., Streetcar Charlie's Bar & Grille, Gourmet Next Door Catering, PRP Wine International, Stonewood Tavern & Grille, Carmine's on Seventh, the Hilton Garden Inn, City Blue Print Co., Dentistry by Attar P.A., TAMPAPROMASSAGE, and the Radiant Group LLC.


Adrian Rand Couture by Gary Randall

Gary Randall was recently featured in the Urban Flair Art Fashion Music event in Ybor City and the Catharsis art exhibit in St. Petersburg Beach. He co-organized and produced last February's Square One Art Exhibit at The RITZ Ybor, where he unveiled his Adrian Rand Couture fashion line. Gary's near future plans include officially incorporating and overseeing Square One Productions in New York where he will relocate this summer.

Okesene Tilo co-organized and produced last February's Square One Art Exhibit with Gary Randall. He was the public relations force behind fashion designer Ben Chmura's Red Hood and Ozmapolitan fashion shows in Ybor City. Okesene's near future plans include planning Gourmet Next Door Catering's official launch party in September, collaborating with designer Ben Chmura on his summer fashion show and producing photographer Ryan Prado's first solo exhibit in December. Okesene plans to officially incorporate and oversee Square One Productions in Florida when Gary departs in June. He will organize the third Square One art and fashion show scheduled for November.

TAMPA BAY ARTISTS UNITE FOR CHARITY ARTS SHOW

Tampa, FL (January 21, 2008) – The Square One Art Exhibit will take place on Saturday, February 9th, 2008 at The RITZ Ybor located at 1503 N 7th Ave in the Ybor City district.
Square One will showcase the works of more than 25 local Bay area artists seeking to sell their works and to help establish Tampa as a creative community. The exhibit will also debut the Adrian Rand fashion show, Taking Flight, by local designer and Square One creator Gary Randall. Select donations and ten percent of all art sales will benefit the Salvation Army of Hillsborough County.

"One of the main frustrations with being an artist is possessing exceptional talent and very little outlets or channels to share it with the public," says Square One creator and Adrian Rand fashion designer, Gary Randall. "My first biggest fear in life was never sharing my artistic vision with others. My second biggest fear was never having an opportunity or way to do so."

Gary hopes that Square One, like the successful Sweatshop and Dirty But Sophisticated art and fashion shows before his, will help give more exposure to the Tampa's arts community and its artists. "

The name Square One derives from the fact that this is my very first art exhibit that I have overseen from the beginning and started from scratch," says Gary. "It also collectively speaks for the majority of artists who are just starting their careers or finding their voice. Every single artist has in some aspect started from square one."

The Adrian Rand fashion show, Taking Flight, will unveil Gary Randall's first ever fashion show and fashion line under the name Adrian Rand. The show will comprise of urban-chic t-shirts that Gary has been selling for over a year now and edgy women's dresses intriguingly inspired by various birds.


Square One is open to the general public, aged 18 years and older, and is free admission to attend. Doors open at 7 p.m. and the event will last until 11 p.m. The Adrian Rand Taking Flight fashion show will take place at 9 p.m. Open donations will be accepted to help benefit the Salvation Army of Hillsborough County.

Gary Randall will graduate from the University of South Florida this spring with a B.A. in Advertising. Gary was recently featured in the St. Petersburg Beach art exhibit, Catharsis. His near future plans include officially launching his online designer t-shirt company and pursuing his dreams as an artist in New York City this summer.
