Call to Artists for September’s Juried Exhibit
We believe in the healing power of art. In the aftermath of Hurricane Ian, we have seen
a great need for healing in our community. We are asking artists to create artwork about
their experiences during or after the storm in any capacity. It may be stories of resilience
or trauma or loss. It can evoke a wide range of emotions. It is meant to be cathartic and
therapeutic and shareable, something everyone can relate to in some way.
Artists may submit 1 – 3 pieces for consideration for this exhibition. There is no entry
fee. We encourage artists to submit 2D and 3D artwork using found objects and recycled
materials collected after Hurricane Ian. Alternatively, we ask artists to submit artwork
expressing their experiences during and after Hurricane Ian. All media will be accepted,
such as paint, collage, photo, drawing, print, etc. Only original artwork will be accepted.
All entries must be submitted online no later than August 7 at 5pm. No materials will be
accepted at the Alliance – this exhibit is online entries only. Full details can be found on

In the Gallery
Joan Sonnenberg: A Retrospective Exhibition
June 16-July 29
Opening Reception: June 16, 5-7pm • See it first. See it free. This event is open to the public.
Come meet your neighbors and enjoy light refreshments provided by Jayne Baker at this free event!
At the age of 5, Joan became interested in the real and imaginary facets of art and life which have
formed the basis of her artwork ever since. The 92-year-old artist maintains her lifelong daily art
practice and four-mile walks to this day. Interested in geometric patterns achieved through multiple
reverse etching processes, Joan superimposes and stacks up to ten images on top of each other,
creating a complex montage of lines, shapes and patterns.
Theatre Lobby Gallery: Christian de Jesus
Christian De Jesus is an artist from Fort Myers Florida, who has placed and won in many art shows
in the area. His medium of choice is acrylic paint on canvas or cardboard, but he also uses clay and
spray paints on occasion. His art work introduces a deep look into real world things such as life and
death. His art takes inspiration from artists like Jean-Michel Basquiat, David Choe, Andy Warhol, and
movies like, Halloween, House of 1000 Corpses, and Girl interrupted. Christian hopes to one day open
a gallery of his own.
