Enjoy an opening night reception July 2 with artist meet and greet, cocktails and inspiring art.
The Sidney and Berne Davis Art Center welcomes a trio of super talented artists, Marcus Zotter, Matt “Mully” Mulhern and Marvin Rouse, as they present “Three M’s Synergy” in the Grand Atrium Gallery. Also in the Capital Gallery, Cath Branwood’s latest world perceptions will be depicted during her solo art exhibit, “Me, You, and Them.”
Both shows open on Friday, July 2 from 6 to 10 p.m. during the Fort Myers Art Walk.
Artists Marcus, Mully, and Marvin are all based in Naples and have formed as the Three Ms to create “Synergy” for their upcoming show. The three Naples artists have been painting together over the recent years creating “Synergy” during their Live Art sessions and decided to make it the title for their upcoming show. This event represents the fact that when people can come together and are true to working with each other, all though different styles, having love and good feeling precede their actions, they can create something powerful for all to enjoy.
During a time such as what people are experiencing globally with the pandemic, having art that speaks, uplifts and creates “Synergy” has the power to bring people together.
Originally from the UK, Cath Branwood traveled extensively before moving to the United States almost 10 years ago. Cath continually tries to share her unique perception of the world through being a creator. She is a painter, visual artist, photographer and poet. The “Me, You and Them” exhibition originated from the 2020 lockdown period where Cath was isolated alone and took the opportunity to explore herself, producing her stark black and white self-portraits displaying loneliness, isolation and the ‘shadow side’ of herself, but also showing the open blank space for things which lie beyond all that.
This exhibition also features the contrasting style with the graphic lineal “words and faces” pieces, created in mixed media and portraying images of people living and passed who have inspired the artist through their incredible presence on this earth with books, letters, plays, poems, speeches, lyrics and music.
Also be sure to visit Sidney’s rooftop sculpture garden to view works from people such as Miami artists Juan Miguel Vazquez and Mario Almaguer, as well as the painted mural “Paradise City ” by Artsemble Underground of Fort Myers.
The Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center is located at 2301 First St. in the Fort Myers River District.
