In July, Arts for ACT Gallery will feature an open group exhibit with more than 20 artists in “Altars, Shrines, Ditty Boxes and Cabinets of Curiosities 2.” Also showing will be new works from the gallery’s co-op artists.
An opening reception will be held Friday, July 2 from 6 to 10 p.m. in conjunction with the monthly Fort Myers Art Walk.
The July exhibit is an open invitational to all artists to produce 2-D or 3-D art for the annual fundraiser to support ACT and ACT Gallery. This year, the gallery asked the artists to create altars, shrines, ditty boxes and cabinets of curiosities of icons, sacred spaces or notable objects. They were to use canvas, shadow boxes, Altoid mint tins, cigar boxes, upcycled clocks and more. Then fill them with found objects, photos, memories and treasures.
Over four years ago, the gallery hosted this exact exhibit and the artists that participated created an array of wonderfully different art. This year, creative genius Dale Weber will be the judge to give ribbons to the best exhibits. Come peruse this year’s exhibit with over twenty local artists and see the creativity that lies in the hearts of all that exhibited.
This exhibit continues through Monday, Aug. 2.
Arts for ACT Gallery is located at 2265 First St. in downtown Fort Myers. For more details, call 239-337-5050.
