The Southwest Florida Community Foundation recently hosted two artist receptions for “Coming Abstraction,” a solo show by printmaker and painter Barbara J. Yeomans, where four of her one-of-a-kind hand pulled prints and paintings were sold, and 35 percent of sales were donated to The Fund for the Arts of Southwest Florida, a fund the Community Foundation.
The exhibit will be open Mondays through Fridays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. through Jan. 31, 2016, at the Community Foundation, located at 8771 College Parkway, Suite 201 in Fort Myers.
