Area artists, students of art, and art enthusiasts, and local activists will be treated to a solo exhibition of Fort Myers artist Patricia Collins work this spring at the Florida Gulf Coast University’s ArtLab.
Action, Reaction and Interaction exhibit runs March 4 – April 7 with an opening reception and artist talk March 3 at 5 p.m.
Collins was born in Massachusetts, got her degree from the Pratt Institute, and lived and worked as an artist in New York prior to a move that brought her to Fort Myers many years ago. Since that time, she has been active in tri-county schools teaching art, shown at such honored institutions as the Ringling Museum, the Florida Museum for Women Artists, Scope Miami, and the Morean Arts Center. Her limited-edition artist book, “Urban Anxieties” is in the MoMA Queens Artists’ Books collection. Collins’ murals can be seen at Habitat for Humanity in North Fort Myers and the Kappa Development Foundation in Fort Myers. She also serves on the City of Fort Myers Public Art Committee.
Collins’ work reflects on the challenges of communication in daily life and the myriad of emotions triggered while navigating the landscape of issues, images and events encountered along the way.
The ArtLab is located on the west side of FGCU’s Bradshaw Library building in the heart of campus. Call 239-590-7199 for more details or go to www.fgcu.edu/artgalleries.
