LEE MEARS to exhibit “Flights of Fantasy” Mixed Media paintings as October Featured ArtistIsland 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.”
Island Gallery West is located at 5368 Gulf Dr., Holmes Beach, FL, Trolley Stop 15 on Anna Maria Island. Lee’s exhibit runs through October 31. Regular gallery hours are 10 AM-5 PM, Mon.-Sat. and Sundays, 10 AM-5 PM from Nov. through the end of April.
