Paint Around


    Fort Myers Beach Art Association held a Paint Around Student Scholarship Fundraiser this week at their working gallery on Donora St, Fort Myers Beach. The Paint Around involved four award-winning artists, Sue Pink, Cheryl Fausel, Kathleen A Taylor and Terry Shattuck, each beginning a watercolor work, and then rotating each artwork every several minutes until back to the original artist. All four artists signed the artwork as contributors, with a silent auction taking place throughout the painting process.

    Proceeds of the auction support the Art Scholarship Fund that provides scholarships to graduating seniors in the spring. A Student Art Show will be on exhibit at the Gallery beginning March 25th. The mission of the FMBAA is to promote the study, practice and appreciation of art, and to hold art exhibitions and programs open to the public.

    Approximately 100 bidders and others attended, and enjoyed a fun party atmosphere with refreshments and hors d’oeuvres
