Floracion opens July 25 at the Visual Arts Center in Bonita Springs. The group exhibition features the art of Cecilia Valadez, Monika Bokelmann, Sonia Rosa, Julia Da Rocha and Winnie Purple.
If one could draw the subtle connections that exist between individuals, especially as artists, we would find those connections reach far beyond where we stand. They emerge from everyone and everywhere, and come together in the most unexpected ways. Five local artisans were invited to join one another for a group exhibition, each of them on their own unique journey, but with some key things in common: they are all women, Latina, spirited and fiercely dedicated to their art.

Each of these remarkable artists is known for creating highly introspective work, yet each with their own distinctive style and sources of inspiration. Through the use of various media, these artists have forged bodies of work that explore the deep connections of the soul – to nature, ourselves and to each other.
Together these artists remind us how we learn, through the creative process, to grow – to bloom – and not forget one’s roots.
On Thursday, July 25 from 6 to 8 p.m., Arts Bonita will host a meet-the-artists reception for Floraciόn. The reception is free and open to the public. Light bites and beverages will be served.
The exhibit runs to Sept. 5. The center is located at 26100 Old 41 Road, Bonita Springs.
