Closing reception:

Join us to honor and memorialize the one year anniversary of Hurricane Ian making landfall.  

Our September Gallery is a year in the making. This Juried Exhibition is in conjunction with the
oral history project, Storm Stories. We created this project in the wake of Hurricane Ian. We saw
a great need for healing in our community after the devastating storm. By collecting stories of
people’s experiences during the storm and by asking local artists to use their experiences to create
art, we hope to help our community find beauty and begin the process of healing.  

Theatre Gallery Artist: Hope:

The Others Side of Hurricane Ian shows how the deadly storm united people in the one thing that
couldn’t be destroyed. Hope. Families, friends and volunteers across Southwest Florida met moments
of hurt with hopeful acts of caring. Nonprofits, businesses and government agencies provided vital
resources and infrastructure repairs. These compelling moments captured in pictures, reflect the
endured hurt and shared determination of people — to keep hope alive.  

In the Member’s Gallery: Tamara Culp and Jodi Enders  

In the Theatre: For those of us who live at the shoreline by Sasha Wortzel
