"Artists with Heart" Fundraiser at ACT Gallery Opens February 1

Artists with Heart!
JoAnn Bedient - Raku Heart Shoe
A Group Exhibit raising money fond ACT Gallery
A call to local artists was sent in late December asking for donations of art to help raise money for ACT Gallery and ACT.   The donated art could be no larger than 12” X 12” and must have at least one heart or an endearment incorporated into the created piece.  The money generated from the sell of these pieces would benefit ACT and ACT Gallery.  ACT Gallery is a project of Abuse Counseling and Treatment, Inc., which has two shelters in Lee County, supporting and housing the victims of human trafficking, domestic violence, sexual assault and their children.  ACT Gallery helps generate income for ACT.  It has been in existence for 10 years in downtown Fort Myers. Our local artists have really given us a lot of their heart.  So far 29 artists have paid it forward and have completed and delivered over 45 pieces of heartfelt works!  Exhibiting artists are Cheryl Fausel, Honey Costa, Paula Eckerty, Kim Roenigk, JoAnne Bedient, Linda Benson, Claudia Goode, Peg Cullen, Barb Mintz, Vicki Baker, Karen Jarsted, Beth Ivens, Pat Cleveland, Katherine Boren, the artist Zaki, Helen Andrejev, Scott Guelcher, Dale Weber, Eileen McGrath, Mary Widner, Scott Guelcher, Dale Weber, Eileen McGrath, Annette, Michelle Rothaker, Lisa Freidus, Terry Gardiner, Marilyn Hedlund, George F. Draper Harris, Marie Cahill and Andrew Miller.  Come down, see what each artist created with love and buy a piece of art for your Valentine!  Let’s all pay it forward!!
