Arts for Act

The yearly art auction to benefit the Abuse Counseling and Treatment Center here in Fort Myers was held last night. The Arts For Act event offers raffle, silent auction, and active bidding on fantastic pieces of art that have been donated to benefit the cause.

I donated a couple of pieces of my flower collages on watercolor paper and canvas that we're inspired by artist Traci Bautista. Claudia Goode, the clever curator of the gallery downtown and head of this event, offered my collage works as part of the
raffle. She paired my paintings with a monthly supply of beautiful flower arrangements that would be delivered by a local florist. The little glass jar in front of the display is filled with little pink tickets. I was pleased with the presentation and honored to be a part of the event.
