Receptions & Open Houses

Each year the Centers for the Arts Bonita Springs presents a dynamic and wide-ranging selection of exhibitions which both appeal to and enlighten our membership and visitors.


To recognize the hard work of the exhibiting artists we begin each exhibition with an open reception, generally the Friday after receiving from 6:00-8:00pm. This is a chance for members and guests to enjoy an evening of socializing, art and light hors d’oeuvres.


Some receptions throughout the year are held in conjunction with a campus-wide open house. Students and faculty members display and sell their art in the studio/classrooms during the evening. Several instructors also provide artists demonstrations of the work taught in their classes.
