Arts for ACT Gallery will hold an opening reception Friday, July 3 from 4 to 8 p.m. for its Art Poems exhibit in the main gallery and an exhibit of Arts for ACT Gallery’s co-op artists and volunteers in the White Gallery.
ArtPoems is a creative collaboration of artists and poets. As a platform for the creation of new art and poetry, it adds a unique vision and voice to the Southwest Florida cultural landscape each year. Founded in 2007 by Lorraine Walker Williams and Joe Pacheco, ArtPoems celebrates its 14th year in 2020.
Each season, Art Poems’ artists and poets are paired and exchange art and poetry. The artists create new art works inspired by poetry, and the poets write new poems inspired by artwork. New creations emerge from this shared inspiration and collaboration.
Arts for ACT Gallery co-op artists and volunteers will exhibit in the White Gallery for the month of July. This exhibit will include new works by our working artists. The exhibit will be an eclectic group show with mixed media, fine crafts, art journaling, jewelry, art clothing, oil and acrylic paintings and more.
These exhibits continue to Aug. 3.
Arts for ACT Gallery is located at 2265 First St. in downtown Fort Myers. For more details, call 239-337-5050 or visit artsforactgallery.com.
