BIG ARTS will feature “Art Vibe: A Free Celebration of Art, Food and Music” on Dec. 1 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
The free event, which will feature live music by the Kate Skales Band in the Boler Garden, will serve as the opening night reception for two fine art exhibits: “Altered Realties” and “Handmade: the Art of Ceramics.”
In the Phillips Gallery, “Altered Realites” is a surrealist show that reveals the ways that different artists manipulate underlying form to express their unique, abstracted vision of the world before them. The show features works that represent abnormal or manipulated realities. In the Founders Gallery, “Handmade: the Art of Ceramics” will feature ceramics that are not only functionally beautiful, but also uniquely created. The show explores the possibilities of the medium beyond functionality. Awards for both exhibits will be announced during the event.
There will be hors d’oeuvres from the Paper Fig Kitchen, craft beer by Point Ybel Brewing Company, wine from Bailey’s General Store and coffee by Shift Coffee Bar.
The BIG ARTS main campus is at 900 Dunlop Road, Sanibel. For more information, visit online at www.bigarts.org or call 239-395-0900.
