A December to Remember at the Naples Art Association

Rounding out 2012 with a great variety of fine art (both in gallery exhibition and an outdoor art festival), the Naples Art Association celebrated member artists and engaged creative enthusiasts within the community. December 2012 events included the opening of two  new exhibitions, Art in the Park, educational classes and workshops such as Wine and Dezine as well as community-coordinated activities including the Fifth Avenue South Tree Lighting on Dec. 6, 2012. For the tree lighting, Home Depot generously donated six fraiser fir trees to the Naples Art Association. These trees were decorated by attendees, and the fully decorated trees were delivered to families in need in Collier County. Event attendees to Art in the Park on Dec. 1, 2012 not only had the chance to see great art and build make-and-take art projects, but they were also invited to help glaze ceramic bowls, made by instructor and artist David Hammel. The finished bowls will be donated to the Harry Chapin Food Bank for their 2013 Empty Bowls fundraiser, which helps to feed the hungry in Collier County. Naples Art Association also awarded more than $2,500 in cash prizes to exhibiting artists in the National Art Encounter 2012-13 and the Members’ Gallery All-Media show.
