Artist and author Katie Gardenia is having a one day trunk show at the Edison Ford Shoppe in the Bell Tower Shops from 1-5 p.m. on January 18. With a history that includes starting Captiva’s Bubble Room Restaurant and her book of art, memories and recipes, A Bubble Moment, Gardenia is also creating unique textile sculpture, steam punk art and jewelry. Besides using industrial materials, Gardenia hand dyes her textiles with coffee and herbs for her final art piece.

A Bubble Moment has been described as "a treasure hunt for readers as they journey through a collection of fond memories, short and tall stories, recollections and envelopes of secret recipes." Fort Gardenia, writing the 117-page book and gathering the included photos and recipes was a way of gaining closure on a magical period during a life as full of ups and downs as a Busch Gardens rollercoaster.

Gardenia's one-day trunk show at the Edison Ford Shoppe, which is free and open to the public, includes a dazzling one-day exhibit of her work and a book signing. Open since April of 2013, the Edison Ford Shoppe is located in the Fountain Plaza at the Bell Tower Shops in Fort Myers. For directions or more information, please telephone 239-334-7419.
