April 5th 2024 Anna Forrest Fischler at ACT Gallery

Join Arts for ACT Gallery, located at 2265 First Street in downtown Fort Myers on Friday, April 5, 2024, from 5 to 9 pm for the opening reception and Meet the Artist for the April Fort Myers Art Walk. This month, ACT Gallery will feature the ACT Artist Anna Forrest Fischler.
Featured Artist – Anna Forrest Fischler Anna Forrest Fischler, born in 2002, is a Fort Myers local currently in her 3rd year studying Illustration at the Rhode Island School of Design. Her work represents a caring and compulsive urge to catalog her relationships and surroundings before the impermanence of college life lets them pass by. She uses a variety of media and a visual style that leans toward realism with a fondness for saturated colors, geometric shapes, and camouflage-like layering. In this series, she used observation en plein air and quilt patterns to commemorate nostalgic views. Most of these pieces are a combination of gouache and colored pencil, using salt water from each scene to mix the paint as she worked, imbuing each piece with a physical connection to the location. Anna had her first exhibit at Arts for ACT Gallery when she was a high school student, four years ago. That exhibit was a “sell out”! Come see her latest creations! ACT gallery is curated by Claudia Goode with the help of ACT Artists and Volunteers. The gallery is currently seeking volunteers and new artists!
