The Center for Visual Arts in Bonita Springs has three new art exhibits and its first art festival of the season in January.
The Black & White exhibit opens Friday, Jan. 3 with a reception from 6 to 8 p.m. What can an artist say by removing the impact of color from their process of creation? Emphasis is placed on textures, lines, and composition as the foundation of a powerful image or sculpture. For this exhibition, artists are asked to submit their most intriguing works using only black and white in any medium.
Also on Jan. 3, the Cheri Dunnigan exhibit opens. Cheri Dunnigan is a master goldsmith and nationally recognized landscape painter. She worked for many years as a designer craftsman, maintaining a retail studio and showroom in Hopkinton, Mass. This exhibit will feature new works from her Woven Collection born out of her lifelong interest in lace and textile arts.
The annual members only exhibit opens Jan. 31 with a reception from 6 to 8 p.m. A dynamic exhibition of awe-inspiring artwork in a wide array of media. Enjoy a truly phenomenal display of work by our talented members. Each year just gets better and better. Help the center celebrate 29 years of great member art.
The first of three Bonita Springs National Arts Festivals will be held Jan. 11 and 12 at Riverside Park, 10451 Old 41 Road in Bonita Springs. Subsequent juried outdoor festivals will be held in February and March. The festival runs 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days.
