If you are an artist, I invite you to consider participating in the Fort Myers Founding Females Exhibition that I am curating with the Portrait and Figure Painters Society of SW Florida. Here’s the call to artists and Roster of Fort Myers Founding Females from which to choose …. although Berne Davis, Barbara Mann, Dr. Ella Mae Piper and Veronica Shoemaker are already spoken for. But that leaves plenty of interesting women from which to choose.
Hope all’s well.
