In the month of April, DAAS Co-Op Art Gallery & Gifts is showcasing the art of visual artist and local business owner Whitney Hackett.
The opening reception is scheduled for Friday, April 1 from 6 to 9:30 p.m. in conjunction with the monthly Fort Myers Art Walk event. The exhibition will be on display through Sunday, May 1.
Whitney Hackett grew up in Fort Myers, where she currently lives and works as an artist. She is currently the owner of Quartz and Clover – an eclectic store in the heart of downtown. Her paintings are full of vibrancy, with a vintage feel. She explores memory and nostalgia through her body of dreamy and celebratory paintings. Her innocent appreciation for everyday life encourages a childlike playfulness in her work. Through the enshrinement of simple things, she elevates the ordinary to extraordinary. The juxtaposition of her imagery speaks to the interconnectedness of all life, the way we assign meaning to the material world, and the honoring of our existence.
DAAS Co-Op Art Gallery & Gifts is located at 1815 Fowler St. in the Butterfly Estates complex in Fort Myers.
The gallery’s business hours are Wednesday to Sunday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. More information about the venue can be found at www.daascoop.com or by calling 239-590-8645.
