— Naples artists and residents full and part time mingled with more artists and other collectors from around the globe.

Vietnamese artist Le Thanh Sun's "Early Morning" was on display. Collectors like Prince Andrew and Bill Gates own his work.

Naples artist Kerri Meehan and sister-in-law Debi Beauregard came to see larger than life "Breaking Face" by Martin Varowho.

One theme of the show was large colorful three dimensional pieces. Those with an interest in Dali and Warhol were happy too as originals by both famous artists hung for all to see.

One of these, "Ellipse Eclipse," a rotating piece of Art by Tom Brewitz, was constructed of stainless steel wheels that oscillated slowly during the show.

Prices ranged widely, some more than certain condos all over Florida. Whether traditional oil on canvas, metal sculptures, glasswork, photography or oscillating stainless steel art is your cup of tea, you'll find it runneth over at this sophisticated show with both artists and gallery reps expressing happiness about the size and eagerness of the attendees.
