The Cape Coral Art Center invites the public to be a part of the growing arts community by participating in November events including a photography exhibit by Quinn Miller, workshops, classes and its annual holiday fine art sale.
Intangible: A solo exhibition by Q. Miller Photography will be on display Nov. 3 – 21. An opening reception is planned for Nov. 10 from 5 to 7 p.m.
Quinn Miller was born and raised in Clewiston. He discovered his love for photography during middle school when exposed to the work of Erik Johansson. This led him to pursuing an education in the arts, where he found himself at South Florida Community College and Florida Gulf Coast University, attaining a bachelor’s in the arts. He currently resides in Lake Worth and teaches art at the high school level.
“My style relies on surreal elements, and the incorporation of obscured faces to promote the idea of anonymity so that viewers can insert themselves into the images,” Miller says.
Galleries are free and open to the public Monday through Saturday 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
ArtSocial evening workshops with George Hobbs is scheduled for Nov. 2 and 16 at 6 p.m. The art center believes in expanding your creative horizons and providing you with new skills to add to your toolbox. With George Hobbs as your guide, each month you’ll have the opportunity to learn a brand-new skill and unleash your inner artist. This November, participants will create paper beads, a fantastic way to transform simple paper into stunning jewelry pieces.
ArtSocial is the perfect excuse for a girls’ night out, a unique date night, or simply a way to unwind and relax after a busy week. Put your worries aside and let your creativity flow in a fun and supportive environment. All materials are included. Guests are welcome to bring drinks and snacks.
Workshops are $27 per person. Registration is required by calling 239-574-0802.
