The Artist's Choice opened today at the Cape Coral - Lee County Public Library. The exhibition features work by Renate M. Reuter, Wanda Carter, Jean Eaton, Robert Pavon, Ray Randlett and Dot Lingren.
"This exhibition is different," maintains Reuter, who serves as President of the Portrait and Figure Painters Society of SW Florida, which is co-sponsoring the exhibition. "We are promoting better art and rare talents [in the genres of] realism, classicism and traditional art," which Reuter believes is experiencing a renaissance all over the world.
The show features eclectic, one-of-a-kind landscapes, seascapes and still life paintings by Reuter, Carter, Eaton, Pavon and Randlett, as well as unique jewelry and ceramic sculptures by Dot Lingren. There will be a reception for the artists from 4-6 p.m. on March 10. The exhibit will remain on display through March 31.

It is the mission of the Portrait and Figure Painters Society of SW Florida to foster, enhance and upgrade aesthetics, culture, and technical knowledge of fine art portraiture and figurative work by instilling individuals with feelings of self-worth, positive attitudes, new possibilities, and help coping with change and caring. "We like to support this with scholarship programs for deserving and talented aspiring artists, affordable training and study opportunities assisted or provided by this organization," notes Reuter. "We try to build bridges between communities, generations, and nationalities."
Also known as PFPS, President and Founder Renate M Reuter created the Society in October of 2007 to contribute to the community at large through educational programs and studies for students, aspiring and professional fine artists, and the general public.
