Member Gallery: Art(ist) Teacher’s Exhibit
Works of art created by students across Lee County will fill the gallery walls at the Alliance for the Arts throughout the month of April. This is the 22nd year the Alliance has partnered with the Lee Arts Educators Association (LAEA) to provide students with an opportunity to display their artwork in a formal exhibit. This annual show features more than forty schools and hundreds of pieces of art in a wide variety of mediums. Artwork by elementary and middle school students will be on display from April 2-11 with an opening reception on Wednesday, April 2 from 5-7PM. Work created by high school students will then be exhibited with a second opening reception on Wednesday, April 16 from 5-7PM. Judges will select winners in several categories and award a Best in Show. The high school work will remain on display until April 25. Refreshments for the high school reception will be provided by Evan’s Neighborhood Pizza in Fort Myers.
LAEA is a group of art teachers who work to recognize and promote students who show an interest and aptitude in the visual arts. Artwork by LAEA member teachers will be on display in the Alliance Member Gallery. The Theatre Lobby will feature “Broadsides: Poetry off the Shelf,” works created by artists and poets.
Join your friends and neighbors at the Alliance on April 2 and April 16 to support these youth artists, or come by anytime to peruse the exhibits while they’re on display. The Alliance galleries are open Monday through Friday from 9AM-5PM and Saturdays from 9AM-1PM and are free and open to the public.
