1. Friday: Exhibition: ‘Rock, Paper, Scissors’

Marco Island Center for the Arts invites the public to Rock Paper Scissors, an exhibition of work by three artists that will be on view at the Lauritzen and Rush galleries from May 4 through May 29.

Fiber artist Joanna Sunshine uses handmade papers, objects from nature, and found material to weave together storytelling and abstract art into a surprising collage for the paper section.

The exhibition will include work by Lucrezia Bieler, Angelika Kade and Joanna Sunshine. The show’s title refers to the ancient hand game of Chinese origin and is a popular recreation enjoyed by children and adults the world over. The show is divided into three sections. Rock or stone has been used since early times for sculpture. Paper is known for its flexible nature for 2D and 3D art. Scissors are used for the cutting and folding of various materials.

In the La Petite Galerie: Billie Granneman showcases her art of book making design.

Second Tuesday: The exhibition reception is from 5:30 until 7 p.m., May 8. There is a suggested $10 donation for non-members.
