The Alliance for the Arts and Southwest Florida International Airport Present Newest Art In Flight Exhibit: Pop of Color

MacKechnie - Botany of Desire - Acrylic - 24x24_800For the last 15 years, the Alliance for the Arts, a nonprofit visual and performing arts center in the heart of Fort Myers, and the Lee County Port Authority have partnered on a project called Art In Flight, which brings art to the public spaces and the millions of travelers at Southwest Florida International Airport.

The current exhibit, Pop of Color, features a diverse collection of 29 artworks that use line, shape, texture and color to amaze the senses. With a varied collection of styles and media, artists on display demonstrate the wide possibilities of abstract art from clean and crisp edges to wild and energetic strokes of paint.  Various materials and their textures are explored as well with everything from found objects to sculptural, low relief mixed media. Pop of Color will exhibit now until May 2021.

“We are thankful for this continued partnership with the Southwest Florida International Airport to present the Art in Flight exhibit,” says gallery director Ehren Gerhard. “Each year, millions of travelers are welcomed to southwest Florida. The Alliance for the Arts is honored to share the beautiful work of our local artists and celebrate the unique creativity of our region.”
