Exhibits in the Cape Coral Library’s large art gallery are sponsored by the Friends of the Cape Coral Library and are designed to give local artists the opportunity to share their work in this public forum. The library is at 921 S.W. 39th Terrace, off of Mohawk Parkway, and the current show will be open during regular business hours through April 29.

Be sure to visit and view artwork by students in the Visual Arts Classes of Cape Coral Oasis Schools. The walls, as well as the three lighted display cases of the library gallery, are filled with projects created by the young artists, and you’ll be impressed.

Some examples of the artwork now on exhibit at the library include the huge fish sculpture made from trash and titled “All Washed Up” won the “Rethink Waste Award” and $200 towards art supplies at ArtFest in Fort Myers this February.

Recently, three other Oasis Middle School students placed in the Leave the Scene Clean art contest with the Keep Lee County Beautiful organization.

Sixth Grader Dianna Davis won first place in her division, and her artwork will appear on a Waste Pro truck and will also be available on reusable tote bags this fall! Sixth grader Dihia Benaziz and 7th grader Michaela Murphy won honorable mentions in their divisions in the contest. These talented students art teacher is April Gibson.

The Friends of the Cape Coral Library say thank you to teachers Susan Schaefer of Oasis Elementary South, Dawn Oliver of Oasis Elementary North, April Gibson of Oasis Middle School, and Sherri Dahl of Oasis High School for inspiring their students’ creativity and for sharing the artwork with library visitors.
