It's coming up on the time when the warm sun will welcoming, and instead of standing under palm trees looking for a breeze when we stop to chat we'll be willingly standing in the warm sun. I think staying out of the sun has come just a little too far, and that we'd all be happier and healthier with just a half hour of warm sun a week!

The Artist Colony at the Esplanade recently sent out a letter to about 25 groups/clubs and fraternal organizations on Marco Island. We've invited them to arrange a special group visit to the Artist Colony. We'll do it for you, too!

Depending on the interests and needs of a group, we can develop a unique visit just for your organization. This might include a tour of the three studios let by one of our artists, a demonstration by an artists, a behind the scenes tour, a presentation regarding various art topics with a question/answer session and/or refreshments. We are also ope to making arrangements to donate a percentage of sales made during these group tours to your organization or the charity of your choice.

The visit could be during our regular hours from Wednesday through Saturday, or a private tour when the studios are not open to the public. Since we have several outstanding restaurants at the Esplanade, a special visit to the Art Colony combined with lunch or dinner at a restaurant might be another option for a group visit.

If you would like to arrange to bring at least 25 people for a special visit, let us know and we'll have fun tailoring a tour just for you!

Here's Naples designer Libby Marks of Interior Decorating International, winner of a door prize of one of my paintings at just such a meeting. The International Design Society, Naples Chapter held a very successful meeting at the Esplanade and the members had a great time meeting the artists and seeing our work.
