During the Alliance for the Arts’ Second Annual Artists Studio Tour on Saturday, April 13, guests will have the opportunity to get up close and personal with seven Cape Coral Artists in their studios and homes. This daylong, self-guided tour is an educational, inspirational and FUN way to get to know local artists, while helping to support cultural and educational programming at the same time.
The day begins at the Alliance’s 10-acre campus on the corner of
McGregor & Colonial in Fort Myers, where ticket holders will enjoy a
complimentary continental breakfast from 9–11AM and get their map to
the artists’ studios. While they’re at the Alliance, they can also
check out the artist studios in the Edwards Building, including the
Logan Studio, Gulf Coast Atelier, Studio 201 & Union Artist Studios,
all of which will be open.
Participants will then spend the day choosing the order and the amount
of time they wish spend at each location on the studio tour. They’ll
see a variety of artistic mediums, including painting, fiber, glass,
wood & wire work. This year’s featured artists are: Paul Adamick,
Paula Eckerty, Petra Kaiser, Phil Krym, Shirley Hales, Alicia Schmidt
& Rose Young. They day will conclude at the Cape Coral Arts Studio on
Coronado Parkway with an Arty Hour hors d'oeuvres and wine tasting
reception from 3-4PM, with several more artists demonstrating
silversmithing, stone and clay work!
