An exceptional array of two- and three-dimensional work by members of the Dedicated Artists of Southwest Florida Inc. (DASF) will fill the gallery walls and display cases of the Cape Coral Library from Sept. 4 through Oct. 29. This marks the fifth year that the local club of artists will be featured at the library located at 921 SW 39th Terrace, off Mohawk Pkwy.
“We’ve invited these skillful artists back each fall, because the variety of their designs and surfaces on which they paint is so exciting,” explained Monica Rahman, art gallery chair for the Friends of the Library. “And that is no doubt also the reason their annual exhibition is so eagerly anticipated by our regular gallery visitors.”
The Dedicated Artists of Southwest Florida is a local club of 75 members who come from various towns and cities in Lee, Charlotte and Collier counties to attend monthly meetings (held in the Cape Coral Art League building) that feature different painting projects conducted by talented instructors. Mediums may include acrylics, oil, watercolor and colored pencils. For more information about the club’s meeting schedule, projects and seminars visit their website at www.DASFartists.com.
While an important focus on learning the art of painting is integral to the club, there is also an impressive facet of community outreach. As a 501(c)(3) public charity, DASF philanthropic projects support the Harry Chapin Food Bank, Ronald McDonald House Charities pop tab collections, a $500 annual scholarship for a Lee County high school senior, a Suitcase Project that provides decorated cases for the Children’s Network of SW Florida and a Memory Box Project that donates hand-painted boxes to hospitals for families to hold remembrances of a child lost to miscarriage, stillbirth or neonatal death.
Art exhibitions in the library’s gallery are sponsored by the Friends of Cape Coral Library and are designed to afford local artists the opportunity to share their work in this public forum without fees or commissions.
