January 28, 2022 – The Sanibel Historical Museum & Village and the Sanibel-Captiva Art League plein air exhibit begins February 5 and runs through February 24. 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.”
The exhibit will be located 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.
