Following a 10 year tradition, the Alliance for the Arts GreenMarket will host free summer workshops series at 10091 McGregor Blvd. Fort Myers, FL 33919. The first workshop begins June 8 at 10:30 a.m. with a presentation by local grower, edible and medicinal herb expert and raw food enthusiast Tatiana Logvinova.

Logvinova will discuss Vegetables and Herbs During the Florida Summer, exploring how to grow healthy food in hot weather and educating on new ways to prepare it. Logvinova’s classes are always sure to educate and amuse.

Although workshops are free, small donations are welcomed. The Alliance for the Arts GreenMarket strives to support local growers, bakers and artisans. Workshops are rain or shine on the Greenmarket grounds or inside a classroom if weather is inclement.

The Alliance for the Arts is excited to announce the return of its annual fundraiser Arts On Tap on Saturday, Nov. 9 on the Alliance campus at 10091 McGregor Blvd. Fort Myers, FL 33919 from 7 – 10 p.m. The announcement comes alongside the nationwide celebration of American Craft Beer Week. Arts On Tap, now in its third year, is a taste of creativity in the Alliance gallery featuring the craft of local brewers and hand-selected wines benefiting the Alliance for the Arts.

Participating crafters include Big Blue Brewing, Bury Me Brewing, Coastal Dayz Brewery, Eight Foot Brewing, Millennial Brewing Company, Momentum Brewhouse, Naples Beach Brewery, Palm City Brewing, and  Point Ybel Brewing Company. For one night only, guests can delight their senses with locally-handcrafted beers, hand-selected wines and culinary creations in our vibrant gallery. The evening will also feature an exclusive new brew born from a creative collaboration between the Alliance and the award-winning brewmasters at Momentum Brewhouse.

“The Alliance for the Arts is all about supporting small, independent makers who have a story,” says development and marketing director Jessica Wisdom.  “As our local art scene and burgeoning craft beer scene has grown, so has Arts On tap. In our never-ending quest to outdo ourselves, this year’s event will be bigger and better with more art, more fun and of course more beer!”

Last year, Arts On Tap attracted 200 guests. Tickets are $100 and include unlimited tastings from participating breweries and distilleries, culinary creations, pub snacks, gallery admission, music, a silent auction and games.
