To the editor:
The Fort Myers Beach Art Association would like to thank all of you in the area publishing business for including our press releases and news articles in your publications this past season. Without your help, our nonprofit otganization would not be able to reach as many people to inform them of the artistic events and opportunities we provide. Thank you for the photos, attendance, articles and personal attention. We are especially grateful to Bob Petcher from the Beach Observer and Bob and Missy Layfield from the Island Sand Paper for their extensive support.
I would like to thank you all personally for working with me these past nine years as I learned how to do my PR job with the art association. The job will now be handed over to the capable hands of Pam Flaherty. She can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org .
The Fort Myers Beach Art Association will be open now until mid-October from 9 to noon each Wednesday and Thursday. Regular gallery hours will resume mid-October. Artists have hung new works for the summer show and sale. More information can be obtained about workshops, classes and the 2014/15 season on www.fortmyersbeachart.com .
Registration for Paint the Beach, Nov. 3-9, 2014, will begin mid-July. The gallery is located at Donora and Shell Mound boulevards, after taking a left at the blinking light on Estero Boulvard. Call us at 463-3909.
