October Featured Artist - Lee Mears
LEE MEARS to exhibit “Flights of Fantasy” Mixed Media paintings as October Featured Artist This event occurs @ 10:00 am – 5:00 pm from October 1st 2018 to October 31st 2018 Island Gallery West Lee Mears, a Bradenton mixed-media artist, has been named featured artist for October at Island Gallery West. The theme of her display is "Flights of Fantasy". Painting is a source of happiness for Lee Mears, and she feels she has always been an artist at heart. Originally from New York City, her move to Bradenton, Florida, in 1968 gave her an opportunity to study with several noted local artists including Leona Sherwood, Diane Schmidt and Barbara Simmons. A reverence for nature can be seen in her paintings of spectacular Florida skies, beaches and wetlands. She also enjoys working in mixed media and collage, allowing these works “to just happen.” Regular gallery hours are 10 AM-5 PM, Mon.-Sat. and Sundays, 10 AM-5 PM from Nov. through the end of April.
