“Florida Artists Group, Inc. Juried Exhibition” features Southwest Florida artists whose work has attained national or state-wide recognition. The works included in this show range from acrylic paintings, etchings, mixed media to sculptures.

“We hope this exhibit inspires a deeper understanding of our cultural heritage by some of Southwest Florida’s premiere artists,” said Museum Manager Jennifer Perry.

FLAG was incorporated in 1949 as a non-profit organization of professional artists. Made up of artists whose work has attained national or state-wide recognition, the group’s purpose is to stimulate attainment of the highest standards of creative art within the State of Florida.
Long famous for its Key Marco Cat - one of the most remarkable and influential discoveries in North American archaeology - the Marco Island Historical Museum explores Southwest Florida’s Calusa Indians and brings this vanished civilization to life with informative displays and an exciting recreated village scene. Temporary and traveling exhibits trace the settlement of this subtropical island paradise from its early pioneer roots as a fishing village, pineapple plantation and clam cannery, through its explosive growth and development in the 1960s by the Miami-based Deltona Corporation.
