Art can often be delightfully unexpected, and this year’s “Artistic Expressions” Art Show and Sale has a few surprises in store for guests. Shell Point Retirement Community invites Southwest Florida art enthusiasts to attend this free event, held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on both Friday, February 19, and Saturday, February 20.
A location change to Shell Point’s beautiful Island Park (1000 Cellana Court, Fort Myers) will provide a breath of fresh air, as guests browse a brilliant display of painting, pottery, sculpture, stained glass, photography, woodworking, lapidary, three-dimensional paper sculpture, and fiber art. Resident artists will be present to answer questions about his or her creative process and medium.
During lunchtime, food trucks will allow visitors to dine along the peaceful canal that borders the scenic grove of Cuban laurels. Adjoining the park, Shell Point’s award-winning Orchid House offers a view of breathtaking blooms that have inspired many previous artistic masterpieces.
“This is a great opportunity to meet incredibly talented artists, learn about the types of craftsmanship that will be represented in the show, and purchase fine works of art,” said Heather Battey, Resort Services and Wellness manager, and show organizer.
Admittance is free; however, items are available for purchase by cash or check only. For questions or more information, please call 239-454-2152.
