In the month of June, DAAS Co-Op Art Gallery & Gifts is hosting a very special guest artist exhibition at their new location in the Alliance for the Arts campus.
Artist Amanda Zirzow presents her Something Wild collection, with an opening reception scheduled for Friday, June 7 from 5:30 to 9 p.m. The exhibition will be on display through June 30.
Originally from Falls Church, Virginia, Zirzow has made Florida her home since 2016, where she actively engages with both the artistic and scientific communities. Her educational background in biology greatly influences her artwork, bringing a scientific perspective to her creative expression.
The artist’s diverse experiences from her work at the University of Arizona’s Biosphere 2, volunteering with wildlife rehabilitation centers, and scuba diving in Florida’s coral reefs continuously fuel her artistic inspiration. Besides painting, she teaches biology and microbiology at Florida Southwestern State College and spends time on the beaches as a Bailey-Matthews National Shell Museum and Aquarium Shell Ambassador. As a dedicated Calusa Waterkeeper volunteer ranger, Amanda is passionately involved in monitoring and preserving local water quality, using her art to advocate for environmental conservation and the importance of clean water.
This exhibition will showcase a collection of vibrant paintings that bring the spirited essence of wild animals to life, through bold and expressive brushstrokes. Something Wild aims to blend scientific accuracy with artistic expression to highlight the importance of wildlife and biodiversity. Through the colorful and dynamic brushstrokes, the artwork explores the beauty and complexity of nature’s creatures.
DAAS Co-Op Art Gallery & Gifts is now located at 10051 McGregor Blvd., suite 104 in Fort Myers (adjacent to Arts & Eats Café) in the Alliance for the Arts Campus. The gallery’s hours are Wednesday to Sunday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
