Art in the Park…Bonita Springs, FL


The Festival was held at the Promenade at Bonita Bay. The Center of the Arts hosts an exceptional outdoor exhibition featuring 211 nationally and internationally acclaimed artists every year.

A spectacular festival, known for first-rate originality and excellence features one of a kind paintings, glass, jewelry, clay works, mixed media, sculpture and photography. This high quality Fine Art & Fine Craft event offers a rare opportunity for art lovers in Southwest Florida to meet and obtain the work of exceptional, award-winning artists from 33 states, Canada and Europe. Out of all the art venues down here in the south, this one is our favorite. We have been going for several years now and it has never let us down. The above image was one of our favorite booths this year. Their design alone, stood out how they displayed their art. If you get a chance, visit Nicole Wayne Adornment Designs.


It is like a walking tour of exceptional art galleries, but this one is set up outside in sunny Florida.” Sigwarth Glass so many beautiful items for the garden and home.


One of my favorite things to do is share the beauty of life that artists create. Here you are seeing the creation of Wellman and Welsch Pottery Designsout of Lutz, FL. and Cheboygan, MI.

Tip of the day for Bloggers/Photographers:

One of the important elements of a blog is a SEARCH bar! How simple right?
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve gone to a blog from pinterest or something similar and all
that’s there is the most recent posts. Your readers are not going to the bottom to “older posts” and keep
searching until they find it.  So include a way to find a certain topic. You DO need to include a search bar.
If you have WordPress: go to appearance, then to widgets and add your search box.

Thanks for stopping by…If this is your first visit…I’m truly honored to have you here!

Does the arts have a special place in your life?

  1. Wonderful pictures of art, Laurie! I love the quote. Yes, art is special in our home. I have several of my mom’s paintings hanging up plus some limited editions of another artist we like (we bought back in the days before dentist bills and music lessons…). Creating things has always been part of my life, and I suspect it’s the same with you! 😉

    Blessings ~ Wendy

  2. What neat images of the local art, Laurie. I so enjoy wandering among outdoor art venues, but haven’t done it in a while. Thanks for reminding me … and visiting Walk and Click Wednesday! BTW, I’m a night owl; hence, my 11pm pictures!! ;->

  3. Every year we go to Apple Hill Days in Placerville, CA. Apple and pear farms galore and food and vendors from throughout the west. So many farms, so many vendors. Your post makes me yearn for Fall again and we’ve only just hit Spring.

  4. How cool! My favorite art display is that of the walking sticks. That’s amazing how someone can carve such things like that. Great fun post!

  5. Oh these are beautiful! I love all the colored glass. I wish I had a chance to see more of the arts community in Bonita Springs last month. We only fished there for half a day…which isn’t my thing. 🙂

  6. Looks like a really good art market. Love those, when each booth is so unique. I loved the originality of the display at Nicole Wayne. So did you by something pretty that day? I hope so.

  7. Hi Laurie, SO many beautiful creations – my eyes caught the lovely round-shaped vases and the hand-carved staffs! It must have been a very nice day – walking around, admiring the creativity all around!
    A Happy and Blessed Easter to you my friend!

  8. hi laurie…looks like a wonderful place to stroll thru! I just moved my dear mother from her home down there…i am so going to miss the area. Reading your blog is now such a great reminder of all your area has to offer!!

  9. Oh gosh…. what a terrific place to be! I think I would have “loitered” for quite a while there. How fortunate you had your camera with you LOL.

  10. These are really nice. My in-laws make their own crafts and sell them, they do a really great job too. It’s fun to go to the shows sometimes and see what others are making too.

Please share your thoughts...and thank you for the love!
