Hirdie Girdie Gallery announced Sanibel artist Myra Roberts as guest artist for February.
Myra Roberts was a public school art teacher for 25 years, and is now recognized internationally for her iconic images of vintage Florida style art from the ‘20s to the ‘50s. She also produces social commentary pieces on both historical and contemporary issues, and has received honors for her work on these topics. Environmental concerns, especially water quality, are also a frequent subject. Myra is supportive of local and national environmental and educational organizations by donating artwork for fundraising.
She is inspired by the content of her life, and by what is happening on Sanibel, as well as around the world. Her art is designed to educate and inspire the audience in matters regarding nature, the environment and social justice issues. She has received awards for the impact her work has had on the arts and social justice in Southwest Florida, and her art has been featured in media around the nation and is the subject of three books. In addition to exhibiting, she has lectured throughout the United States.
Myra’s exhibit at Hirdie Girdie will consist of a combination of paintings, including her Florida Retro/Sunshine States paintings of the Gulf Coast, a preview of her 2020 Spokeswoman Exhibit to be held at the Bonita Springs Center for the Arts in March, and her 2020 Black Suit Collection, as well as an environmental painting concerning clean water along the Gulf Coast. Myra will be the special guest at a reception on Feb. 13 from 5 to 8 p.m.
