Cape Coral resident, artist, author, and scholar Dr. Kyra Belan will be featured by Arts for ACT Gallery in the River District during the month of September. Dr Belan will exhibit oil and acrylic paintings, drawings, digital art and mixed media artworks in the gallery's main Soho-style exhibition space in a show that opens at 6 p.m. Friday, September 6, during Fort Myers Art Walk.
Belan's career has been distinguished by numerous awards, honors and grants, and her artworks are in public and private collections. Most recently, Dr. Belan won the Special Merit Award at the Botanicals Exhibition featured during the month of August at Light, Space & Time Online Gallery. The art competition is their 3rd annual botanicals exhibition and it challenged participating artists to interpret a floral theme. Over 700 artists from 41 states, the District of Colombia and 27 different countries submitted entries to the show. Belan's winning entry, Sophia Maria, is an acrylic painting on canvas that measures 40 x 30 inches.
Dr. Belan's books can be found in the libraries across the world, book stores, college campuses, and on Amazon.com. You can view more information about the artist on her website at www.kyrabelan.com. During her Arts for ACT opening, the artist will sign copies of her recently published book, Lucid Future.
