      EVENT DETAILS
      Carolyn Johns & Suzanne Bennett Art Exhibit

      Suzanne Bennett and Carolyn Johns are exhibiting artwork for the months of July and August at the Sanibel Community House located at 2173 Periwinkle Way. The public is invited to view their work Monday-Friday from 9am-3pm.

      Suzanne Bennett’s primary medium is pastel. With degrees from Rollins College and Parsons School of Design, she worked as a graphic designer in New York City and in Monmouth County, New Jersey, for many years. In 2010 Suzanne and her husband moved to the Fort Myers, FL, area. She has often exhibited in the galleries at Big Arts on Sanibel Island and in October, 2018, had an exhibition at the Founders Gallery, Big Arts, called “Passion for Pastels.” She describes her work as loose and impressionistic.
      Having always lived by the sea, Bennett uses beaches, waves, and reflections on water as frequent subjects. The brilliance and purity of pastels (“those chunks of pure pigment”) are exhilarating for her. Suzanne paints regularly with the San Cap Art League and the Lee County plein aire painters and says, “For me it's an adventure. I'll hike along a path with all my painting equipment in a big canvas bag to find the perfect spot… a place where I can get clouds and and shadows to hold still, for just one moment. That's the challenge.”

      Carolyn Johns is a retired art teacher and has taught art classes in public schools and universities for many years. An award-winning painter working primarily in acrylics, she features local views of Sanibel and Captiva in her work. Carolyn has exhibited in numerous solo and group shows regionally and nationally. Her paintings are displayed in many corporate and private collections throughout the country. As an avid plein aire painter, Johns feels that "painting nature provides a wonderful challenge in an ever-changing landscape".

      Members of the San Cap Art League, both Bennett and Johns exhibit their work locally on Sanibel and Captiva.
