There are juried art shows in Southwest Florida this time of year, with national rankings, high-dollar price tags, and hotshot artists with their slick brochures and professionally crafted booths.
And then there's Art in the Glades.
This down-home festival, put on largely by locals for locals, with a critical mass of visitors as well as most of the exhibitors coming from Everglades City and its environs, returned to McLeod Park in downtown Everglades City Saturday. It is a distinctly low-key, not to say lowbrow, cultural event, with most artists' booths consisting of little more than a card table set up under the low wooden roof of the community center next to the old Collier County courthouse.
