At the Center for the Arts: Road trips and big adventures


Marco Island Center for the Arts invites the public to experience the visual travel log of the artists from the current exhibition called “Oh the Places You Have Been” from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m., Monday through Friday through Oct. 31.

First place: JoAnn Sanborn

This judged exhibition is taking place in the Lauritzen and Rush galleries. The opening reception called “2nd Tuesday” is from 5:30 until 7 p.m., Oct. 10. No reservations are required. There is a suggested $10 donation for non-members.

These showcased art works reveal “being present in the moment and capturing the senses of the place where you stand and view.” It is a snapshot, an engaging photo, a montage or a painting that immerses you in the spirit of a location.
