Tribby Arts Center is known for its vibrant exhibitions featuring works from visiting artists and Shell Point residents. This summer, Tribby is showcasing creative works by staff members in New Perspectives: Creative Works by Shell Point Employees.
More than 50 artworks will be featured from 24 employees, including drawing, ceramics, decorative arts, mixed media, needlepoint, painting, photography, sculpture and woodworking. Literary submissions include poetry and even a book.
In The Collaborations Gallery, Shell Point continues in its year-long community collaboration with New Perspectives: Creative Works by Heights Charter School Youth. For this newest exhibition, the children were free to create whatever they wished, allowing the artworks on display to be entirely their own perspectives.

Concurrently and in its second floor Legacy and Overlook Galleries, the Tribby continues its display of 28 stunning art quilts in “Artist as Muse: The 20th Anniversary Exhibition of Art Quilters Unlimited.”
Based in Fort Myers, Art Quilters Unlimited is comprised of fiber artists who display their creative works throughout southwest Florida. To celebrate the group’s twentieth anniversary, each of its participating member artists created a textile homage to a painting or style of a well-known 20th century artist. The resulting exhibition presents a fiber-art survey of major painting styles that distinguished a remarkable century of art.
Many of the artworks on display in the Artist as Muse exhibitions are offered for sale. In addition, the shop Serendipity, inclusive in the Shell Point Gallery, offers a wide variety of artworks and artistic gift items.
New Perspectives and Artist as Muse are on display through Saturday, Sept. 7 and are open to the public free of charge from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays. Tribby Arts Center is located at 17281 On Par Blvd. within the Coastal Commons neighborhood of Shell Point.
