ART EXHIBIT COMING TO HISTORICAL VILLAGE IN FEBRUARY

[vc_single_image image=”5303″ img_size=”full” css=”.vc_custom_1642533210375{margin-bottom: 30px !important;}”]January 18, 2022 – Preparations continue for the Sanibel Historical Museum & Village and the Sanibel-Captiva Art League plein air exhibit in February. Members of the Art League over the past months have been painting plein air (in the outdoors) on the Historical Village property. Paintings displayed will showcase the various historical structures. Works are done in watercolor, acrylic, gouache (opaque watercolor), and oil.

Paintings will be on sale at the exhibit. “The exhibit offers a great opportunity to own original artwork of the village,” said Historical Village Executive Director Emilie Alfino. “We enjoy hosting the painters coming often to the village and watching them painting our unique and wonderful buildings. It’s a delight to have them exhibit their work at the Village.”

Artist Kathy Taylor said, “I have painted on site at the Historical Village many times. My favorite building is the little old Post Office. The vegetation surrounding the Post Office sets it off beautifully, as does the little mailbox at the side.”

The exhibit runs February 5 through 24 in the Shore Haven building at the historical village. The art show is open to the public at no charge. Admission to the Historical Village is available for the regular $10 fee per adult. The exhibit and Historical Village are open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The Art League plein air painters meet weekly on Thursday mornings on both Sanibel and Captiva as well as Fort Myers from October to May. The group gathers to paint the local landscape scenery and architecture.

Sanibel Historical Museum and Village is open Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. The Sanibel Historical Village is located at 950 Dunlop Road (next to BIG ARTS) and there is handicap access to eight of the nine buildings. Admission is FREE for SHMV members and $15 for non-members (adults ages 18 years and up).  For more information, call 472-4648 during museum hours or visit www.sanibelmuseum.org.
