During the month of December, DAAS Co-Op Art Gallery & Gifts will host two amazing holiday inspired events and extends the exhibition of macrame art of social media star Reiniery Mariani, aka Macramedelrey.
In addition, the holiday kickoff reception is scheduled for Friday, Dec. 1 from 6 to 9:30 p.m. in conjunction with the monthly Fort Myers Art Walk.
The Macramedelrey exhibition will be on display through Dec. 31.
Macramedelrey is of Cuban-Italian descent residing in Miami, Florida. He has amassed a tremendous following in social media platforms and has customers all over the world. Some of his most popular items are the plant hangers, curtains, and flags. He uses a variety of knots to execute his masterpieces. The collection presented at the gallery consists of multiple styles and decorative-yet-functional pieces. Most importantly, the exhibition is another example of DAAS’ out-of-the-box approach – introducing new and exciting art forms to our community.
In addition to the holiday kickoff reception on Dec. 1, two more events take place this month.
On Saturday, Dec. 16, the gallery will host over 15 vendors for the Holiday Gift Market Day event.
