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.
