The Naples Art Association had a very busy October, as it kicked off its exciting 2012-2013 season of events, art exhibitions, classes and lectures. Before the month sneaks by us too far, let’s revisit all the fun we’ve had.

On Oct. 19 at the preview reception for the NAA Faculty Biennial 2012 and the Members’ Gallery Small Works Show, we welcomed 300 guests to meet the artists, learn about different art classes we offer and discover many new pieces of artwork. Three of our member artists were surprised with awards for their artwork in the Small Works Show. It was one of many wonderful opportunities friends of the arts had to gather at The von Liebig Art Center this month.

Fiber Art instructor Jean Marie Baldwin’s class, Shibori, has attracted a group of excited students who will each complete beautiful silk scarves during the 4-week course. Shibori is one of 12 classes taking place in Session One this season.


Rashmi Sharma M.D. gave a lecture on Peripheral Vascular Disease on Oct. 23. The event was the first of Physicians Regional Healthcare System’s series to be held at The von Liebig Art Center.

October was the kick-off month for our educational programs, featuring 12 different classes.

Partnering with Physicians Regional Healthcare System, we hosted an informative lecture, the first of several this year. 

Author and life coach Shelly Aristizabal hosted a book signing for “This is Your Year,” where she encouraged a crowd of about 30 people to make the most of their lives and fulfill their dreams.

Artichoke and Company hosted their Welcome Back event, “Art and Wine,” with a fun and culture-loving crowd.

October is almost behind us, and the schedule is only getting more exciting as the year moves along! Watch here for details and alerts about the wide variety of activities going on at The von Liebig Art Center.
