Art was all over the place this weekend at the Marco Island Center for the Arts.
The parking lot held a “Fine Crafts,” or fine art and crafts show “Fine crafts fits on the signs better,” said organizer Pam Patullo.
Over 30 artists, craftspeople and at least one game maker, hawking a hybrid of golf and badminton, all showed their creations, in a well-attended show on a beautiful day.
Inside the building, the Calusa Garden Club displayed their “Asian Fusion” show, with artistic arrangements of plants and flowers inspired by Eastern themes, along with an exhibit of Oriental brush paintings by Marco Island’s own Edythe Newbourne in La Petite Galerie. To round things out, the Clay Guild’s members put on display, and for sale, ceramic works created by the group, within the Arts Center’s headquarters and gallery is located at 1010 Winterberry Drive.
