Fort Myers, FL – In the month of April, DAAS CO-OP Art Gallery & Gifts is showcasing the art of visual artist and local business owner Whitney Hackett. The opening reception is scheduled for Friday, April 1, 2022, from 6:00pm to 9:30pm, in conjunction with the monthly Fort Myers Art Walk event. The exhibition will be on display through Sunday, May 1, 2022.
Whitney Hackett grew up in Fort Myers, where she currently lives and works as an artist. She is currently the owner of Quartz and Clover – an eclectic store in the heart of downtown. Her paintings are full of vibrancy, with a vintage feel. She explores memory and nostalgia through her body of dreamy and celebratory paintings. Her innocent appreciation for everyday life encourages a childlike playfulness in her work. Through the enshrinement of simple things, she elevates the ordinary to extraordinary. The juxtaposition of her imagery speaks to the interconnectedness of all life, the way we assign meaning to the material world, and the honoring of our existence.
Art lovers, collectors and enthusiasts are invited to meet the artist during the Fort Myers Art Walk reception, scheduled on the first Friday of April from 6:00pm to 9:30pm.
DAAS CO-OP Art Gallery & Gifts is located at 1815 Fowler Street, in the Butterfly Estates complex in Fort Myers, FL. The gallery’s business hours are Wednesday to Sunday from 10am to 3pm. More information about the venue can be found at daascoop.com or by calling 239-590-8645.
