Welcome to Southwest Florida’s New Arts & Cultural District!
McGregor Blvd, Colonial Blvd, Summerlin Road and Royal Palm make a perfect square! Here you’ll find a hub for artists, arts advocates, musicians, actors and more! Join us in December for the SoCo Second Saturday event featuring local artists in a night filled with fun, family and artful entertainment.
Saturday, December 10th
Theatre Conspiracy will present The Country Wife at 8 PM: A classic comedy by William Wycherley. ‘He’s a fool that marries, but he’s a greater fool that does not marry a fool.’ This bawdy, hilarious, subversive and wickedly satirical comedy pokes fun at the humorless, the jealous, and the adulterous alike. It features a country wife, Margery, whose husband believes she is too naive to cuckold him; and Horner, who pretends to be impotent in order to have unrestrained access to the women keen on ‘the sport’.
Prior to The Country Wife, Theatre Conspiracy will be performing the short one-act play REVENGE OF THE MAGI by Jeff Goode.
Stop by and come see the Off the Wall: 200 Under $200 exhibit! Coinciding with the onset of the holiday shopping season, this non-traditional art show features works of all mediums priced at $200 or less. All sales are “cash and carry,” meaning purchasers will get to take the piece with them when they buy it, instead of waiting until the end of the exhibit. This exhibit is kindly sponsored by Clif & Tina Parker.
Artists Marilyn Hedlund and Shawn Holiday will demo onsite. Marilyn Hedlund’s impressionist style with acrylics began in Gale Bennett’s classes in Southwest Florida and grew in France at his 2001 Art Study Giverny summer session. Shawn Holiday has been teaching area residents, students and visitors how to make baskets using the spade of the royal palm frond for 10 years.
