"Autumn Storm" by Frank Saso
TREASURE ISLAND – Members of the Art Guild of Treasure Island offer a new exhibit through Thursday, Nov. 3. Artists Bobbie Alford, George Avery, Frank Saso, Ethel Wagner and Agnes Wilson bring us watercolors, acrylics and mixed media for our enjoyment.

Bobbie Alford, a Georgia native, strives to capture the beauty of nature in both acrylic and oils. Her love of color is evident in the paintings “Beauty In Bloom,” “Spring Iris” and “Peace and Harmony.” Her “One Room School House” captures the breeze as it lifts an American flag.

George Avery brings us fun, laughter and his delightful fantasies.

“I paint pictures that enchant me and make me happy,” he said.

"One Room School House" by Bobbie Alford
It is easy to see why viewers also enjoy that reaction. “Grass Is Always Greener” and “Festival dia de los Muertos” intrigue us with a bit of philosophy added to the whimsy. We can almost taste the candy in “The Peppermint Tree.” In “Elsie’s Garden,” George shares a nostalgic story with his viewers. One of his neighbors, a Canadian visitor, loves Florida but misses her lovely garden, so George painted her this confection to hang on the wall of her winter home.

Frank Saso has achieved success in both fine and commercial art. For the show he has brought three acrylics and a nostalgic work in graphite pencil depicting the many faces of W.C. Fields. In “The Sanctuary” Frank used a monotone treatment of an icy winter scene. Next, a small town is almost lost in the vast open spaces of “Back Home.” In “Afternoon Storm,” Frank uses a low horizon line and dramatic, threatening clouds to pull the viewer into the impending danger.

We are pleased to welcome new member Ethel Owens Wagner who is adventuresome, versatile and creative. Her artwork and beautiful fabric pieces are well known to local art lovers who enjoy her talents through Suntan Art Center. Working in acrylic, oil or mixed media, Ethel brings us bold colors and interesting textures, exemplified by “Hidden Splendor.” In this powerful painting she combines rich colors, texture and dramatic composition to achieve a three dimensional effect.

Former art critic and teacher Agnes Wilson graces the walls of the Community Center with three well-executed watercolors: a family “On the Beach,” her mosaic-like “Sea Shells” and a graceful composition of two birds, “Breakfast.” Aggie has titled her final entry “Wild and Free.” This mixed media work brightens each of the workshops she attends, both Still Life and Portrait.

The Community Center is at Park Boulevard and 106th Avenue. Call 547-4575.
