Heron’s Glen to host annual art show this Sunday

Some of the best painters in the large community of Heron's Glen will show off their work and offer it for sale this weekend.

The Herons Glen Artist Group will present its 21st annual Fine Art Show on Sunday, March 10, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Heron's Glen Ballroom.

Meet and purchase directly from the artists. Watercolors, oils, acrylics, pencil, photography and several other medias of artworks will be for sale. A record 37 artists will present their work from a group that is almost double the size.

While anyone in the artist group can participate, the show is juried, with the best pieces earning ribbons and honorable mentions in each category.

Show organizer Tom Rogers said he goes to other art shows in this region of the country and that this group can give most of those artists a run for their money.

"It's a very active group and this year's entries are the best ever and most accomplished," said Rogers, who is now running the show after Ruth Maine did so for several years. "There will be a heavy emphasis on watercolors and oils and acrylics."

The Herons Glen Artist Group formed in 1998. There were some professional painters who came here and members learned a lot from them.

"All year long, they took workshops from professional painters and it's been a continuing learning process, like professionals do their whole life," Rogers said. "They are teaching or taking, because art keeps evolving."

Herons Glen is located four miles north of the Shell Factory on U.S. 41 in North Fort Myers.
