The Florida Chapter of the National Association of Women Artists will exhibit at the Marco Island Historical Museum and Gallery. The exhibition, titled Ms Conceptions, will open Oct. 2 and close Jan. 30 at the Collier County museum’s Marco Island campus, located at 180 S. Heathwood Drive.
The exhibit will be juried and judged by respected gallerist, Joseph Panarelli of Quidley and Company, Naples, Boston, Nantucket and Westport.
The Marco Island Historical Museum & Gallery and Marco Island Historical Society present Ms Conceptions, which will run concurrently with a traveling exhibition of ancient pre-Columbian Native American artifacts on loan from the Smithsonian Museum in Washington, DC. The latter exhibition, The Return, is drawing visitors from around the world. Among these historic artifacts is the famous Calusa Cat, which was recovered by archeologists on Key Marco in 1896. THE RETURN is the first exhibition in which all relics recovered in the dig have been shown together for more than 100 years.
On Thursday, Jan. 9 at 3 p.m., selected NAWA artists and the museum and gallery will host an artist talk, which will be moderated by Jane Monreal, evening news anchorwoman for SW Florida’s FOX television network affiliate. The artist talk will be held in the museum’s auditorium at 3 p.m. An awards presentation and a reception with refreshments will follow in the museum gallery, ending at 6 p.m. Both events are free and open to the public.
