Fort Myers Beach Art Association invites visitors and residents to support the arts and local art students through their student scholarship program by attending an exhibit and reception celebrating Student Scholarship Awards.
The gallery will display submitted artworks from potential scholarship recipients from April 9-13 at the FMBAA gallery located at 3030 Shell Mound Blvd, Fort Myers Beach. This exhibit will contain works from college bound seniors from Cypress Lake Center for the Arts, Cypress Lake High School as well as the work of 6th-8th graders from Cypress Lake Middle School.
A reception will be held at the gallery April 10th from 3-5pm and the FMBAA invites all art lovers to attend. Winners will be announced and awards presented at the reception.
The FMBAA held an Art Bazaar at Santini Plaza on March 20th with proceeds contributing a significant percentage of the scholarship funds awarded annually totaling over $3000. The FMBAA presents the scholarships and cash awards to area college-bound students who will be studying the arts and have submitted an artwork entry to the FMBAA Gallery.
