Rookery Bay’s Ninth Annual Juried Painting Exhibition

The Friends of Rookery Bay and the United Arts Council of Collier County present the ninth annual Juried Painting Exhibition from November 6 through January 22. With a theme dedicated to landscape, local artists from Collier and Lee Counties submitted works that represent the national estuarine research reserve’s mission, which is the preservation of this vital marine ecosystem.

   Richard Mueller, Professor of Art at Nova Scotia College of Art and Design, juried the exhibition, ensuring that each piece of art hung on the gallery walls relayed most acutely the artistic expression and mission of the reserve.

An opening reception of the “Juried Painting Exhibition” is scheduled for November 6 from 5:30 to 7 p.m. The evening will include wine, hors d’oeuvres, and a chance for the public to meet the artists behind the art. Space is limited, reservations are recommended. To RSVP, click here.

  • Admission to opening night is $3. General admission from November 7 through January 22 costs $5, which includes admission to the reserve.
