During Art Walk's 5-year anniversary celebration on October 4, there will be a special "UNIT A Trolley" for art lovers who don't want to lose their parking spaces in order to make the short drive over to Marcus Jansen's UNIT A Contemporary Art Space at 1922 Evans Avenue. The trolley is free and runs every 15 minutes from 6 through 10 p.m.
"The Fort Myers community gets to see first what others have to wait for," notes artist advisor Terry Tincher. "UNIT A is showing all-new never-before-seen Jansen works on paper and canvas before they depart for upcoming exhibitions in Europe and the United States."
Openings of new Jansen works on first Fridays are always for limited time. Those not sold during these limited engagements leave the UNIT for shows in other locations, such as the prestigious Art Verona International Art Fair, where Jansen's European gallery Bianca Maria Rizzi & Matthias Ritter will introduce his modern urban landscapes and Anonymous portraits to the Italian art market beginning October 10.
Jonas Stirner is also showing his new "Virgin White" series of sculptures for limited time at UNIT A. For more than 14 years, Striner worked directly with artist Robert Rauschenberg on Captiva Island as an Artist Assistant. He is also the son of renowned artist Karl Stirner. Known for captivating metal sculptures, Stirner has been collaborating with Jansen on multiple projects since early this year. Stirner previously collaborated with artist Shepard Fairey, producing more than one hundred fine art prints of Fairey's art work by Fairey to benefit the New York City Coalition for the Homeless.
For those who don't mind the drive, parking at UNIT A is free. For more information or to arrange private showings, please contact Terry Tincher at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.unitaspace.com.
