This month the Herons Glen Artist Group will display acrylic, oils, and water color originals in Commissioner Tammy Hall's downtown Fort Myers office until April 2, 2010. The nine artists: Barb Stein, Lois Smith, Madelyn Moffet, Tootie Stark, Judy Tyler, Judith Biddle, Dee Fugere, Bunny Carter, and Gary Olsen all live in the Herons Glen Community. The public is welcome to view the artwork and learn more about the artists. Call 533-2226 to confirm office hours for viewing the artwork.
"The arts are an important part of the cultural and development of our community" Hall said. "I believe that government can play an important role in public awareness, developing the use of public spaces for display and interaction of art, and for the encouragement and commitment of continued financial support both public and private of all the arts."
Other local artists will be featured every four to six weeks. Hall's office is on the first floor of the Old County Courthouse, 2120 Main Street in downtown Fort Myers.
Hall is the recipient of the Angel of the Arts Award Business Sponsor 2009. She was elected to the Board of Lee County Commissioners in 2004 and re-elected in 2006. Her district includes North Fort Myers and the central and northern portions of Cape Coral. For more information on this program, contact Carmen Salom, executive assistant, at 239-533-2226.
