Center for the Arts of Bonita Springs

Upcoming Exhibitions

 

Each year the Centers for the Arts Bonita Springs presents a dynamic and wide-ranging selection of exhibitions which both appeal to and enlighten our membership and visitors. While some exhibitions feature member, faculty or student artists from our own community, other shows feature traveling exhibitions from national institutions in the U.S. or artworks from around the world.

 

Our schedule provides events that focus on a particular theme, medium or concept. Summers feature regional artists, Fall features a traveling exhibition, and February features our Annual Members' Exhibition.

“Surf and Turf” Exhibition

● March 11 - 24, 2016

● Opening Reception: Friday, March 11, 2016, 6pm-8pm

● This show opens in conjuction with a campus wide Open House

● Originating from the culinary reference to combine crustaceans and beefsteak in a single meal, Surf and Turf also aims to “mix it up” a little. The theme may be interpreted directly with subjects from either land or sea. Other artists may choose to venture out into untread waters by exploring the opposition of seemingly disparate objects. Who thought of mixing steak with seafood in the first place? Through the contrast of opposing subjects artists can create new relationships and meaning. The audience responds to these associations and is free to develop their own conclusions. So whether you love the design elements of plated food, have a knack for representing the land or sea, or are a deep thinker with something to say this exhibition should prove to be a hearty main course!
