What a thrill having two of my paintings juried into the Southwest Florida Annual Painting Exhibit - November 17, 2016 to January 26, 2017 at the Gallery at Rookery Bay National Marine Estuarine Research Reserve, 300 Tower Road, Naples, Florida.
The next delight was finding that SUNLIT COCONUTS was being featured for the poster advertising the show!
At the beautiful reception held November 17, Juror Anica Sturdivant presented me with the Juror’s Choice Award for Excellence - a monetary award (2nd place) and I did a happy dance!! This was my first foray into the art community of Naples in Collier County, Florida but not my last. An honorable one year membership to the United Arts Council of Collier County was included with the award! What a lovely way to end the year.
