Reverie & Rock Art Gallery features digital surrealism by Kathy Kuser and rock and country concert photography by Jamie Kuser. "With my art, I want to bring a fresh and contemporary twist to a long established medium - surrealism," says Kathy Kuser. "I find that through tragedy comes hurt and healing. At 50, I am at a point of re-evaluating life's direction and I find myself invigorated by my new form of artistic expression. Using my skills as a graphic designer, I create 2D/3D digital surrealism. Through a mystical and fantasy driven vision, a story emerges from my canvas. I use stark details with transitional blending; thus my art takes flight."
The new downtown Fort Myers art space also showcases the concert photography of Jamie Kuser. For more than 15 years, Jamie has been photographing national recording artists while they perform on stage. From AC/DC to ZZ Top, and from Alan Jackson to Sugarland, Jamie has photographed more than 150 national artists live in concert. His photos have appeared on national tour T-shirts, VH1’s Behind the Music, the Associated Press Photo Archives, published in daily newspapers and, of course, in Southwest Florida's own Happenings Magazine.
Ocasiocasa Studio Gallery presents “Nuevo,” a collection of seven new altered art dolls.

Ocasiocasa is located at 1540 Broadway, between First & Main, in the Fort Myers River District.
