Two new exhibitions – “Seeing Red: The History and Emotions of a Color We Love” and “Artist As Muse: The 20th Anniversary Exhibition of Art Quilters Unlimited” – open April 12 in Shell Point’s Tribby Arts Center.
Seeing Red is a juried and judged exhibition that displays the very best art being produced by Shell Point artists and artisans today. With works in all mediums, including painting, photography, drawing, pottery, glass, textiles, collage, wood, and more, each piece in the Tribby’s Shell Point Gallery presents its artist’s unique interpretation of “seeing red.” A special component of the exhibition will present the works of Shell Point writers, reflecting on the same theme.

An art quilt presents its maker’s original design rather than a traditional pattern. It is a demanding genre, requiring the quilter to be both artist and superb needleworker. In Artist As Muse, Art Quilters Unlimited of Fort Myers is celebrating its 20th anniversary. In honor of the occasion, for this exhibition, each member was randomly assigned a major artist of the 20th century and then allowed to choose any artwork of that artist for which to create a textile homage. Works on display will include quilts and other textile creations in the Tribby’s Legacy and Overlook Galleries.
In addition to viewing the exhibition, visitors can explore the Serendipity gift shop, which offers a wide variety of jewelry, art, and art-inspired gift items for sale.
“Seeing Red” and “Artist As Muse” are on display through Saturday, June 22 and are open to the public free of charge from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays. Tribby Arts Center is located at 17281 On Par Blvd. within the Coastal Commons neighborhood of Shell Point.
