Arts for ACT Gallery will feature artist Jolie Barb’s exhibit “Presence; the Sea & the Moon” in September.
An opening reception is planned for Friday, Sept. 2 from 6 to 9 p.m. in conjunction with the monthly Fort Myers Art Walk.
Painting is an act of courage for Jolie Barb. Painting for over 42 years, her purpose has evolved depending on the mood of her stage. Presently, it is an act of love for Jolie. One she can share. Taking bold chances, Jolie finds thoughtful and exciting. She can see where she is emotionally in her work, even when she is not aware of it.
“It is there on that colorful canvas telling the story. Creating art is like using all the energy that has been built up inside, it is like embarking on a new journey every time the brush dips and drips into that gorgeous pallet of colors, lines strokes and splashing to say it is peace,” states Jolie.
Stepping into her studio is a way to free herself, to quiet the mind, to become unafraid, a place to take risks, playtime as well as a place to create balance in what is working or not. Jolie states, that showing my art is an honor and privilege today, her paths in life have offered a wisdom to know that she is still and always will be a student learning life one day at a time.
“Presence; the Sea and the Moon” will continue to Oct. 3. Come view all of the creative artworks of over 50 artists and support ACT Gallery.
Arts for ACT Gallery is located at 2265 First St. in downtown Fort Myers.
