The Rotary Club of Cape Coral is thrilled to announce local Fort Myers talent, David King as the official poster artist for the 27th Annual Cape Coral Festival of the Arts. David King is a wildlife and natural landscape artist whose medium is watercolors specializing in scenery and wildlife paintings.
King was a part of the Artist-in-Residence program at the Denali National Park. The Artist-in-Residence program is a national program that enables established artists to reside in a park while they create park-related art. Artists have played a significant role in raising public awareness of the natural wonders preserved within the National Park System and the need for their protection since the creation of Yellowstone National Park. King stayed in the historic East Fork cabin at Mile 43 on the Park Road for ten days between June and September.
The festival will take place on Saturday and Sunday, January 14th and 15th from 10 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. This event showcases the works of over 300 juried artists and artisans featuring fine art, sculpture, pottery, jewelry, photography, metal works, mixed media and much more.
The festival is held on Cape Coral Parkway in downtown Cape Coral between Del Prado Boulevard and Vincennes. Free admission and parking will be provided along with area’s largest collection of art, food and fun for the whole family.
