In the month of April, DAAS Co-Op Art Gallery & Gifts is featuring a collection of pieces submitted by artists from Southwest Florida who responded to an invitation posted on the venue’s website. The exhibition, entitled Iconic, honors legendary icons in the entertainment and artistic industry, from all times.
The opening reception is scheduled for Friday, April 2 from 6 to 9:30 p.m. in conjunction with the monthly Fort Myers Art Walk. The exhibition will be on display through May 1.
Artists were challenged to turn their love for legends like Marilyn Monroe, Myles Davis, Elvis Presley, Rita Moreno, Maya Angelou, Madonna, Bob Marley, to name a few. Their creations incorporate imagery that clearly represent the icon, whether in portrait or suggestive.
