Call to Artists: “Natives in the Gardens” Exhibit Returns

October 12, 2021

SCCF and the Sanibel-Captiva Art League are once again teaming up for an outdoor art exhibit at SCCF’s Bailey Homestead Preserve. With the theme of “Natives in the Garden,” artists are encouraged to create unique works of art that represent SCCF’s mission of protecting and caring for Southwest Florida’s coastal ecosystems. The selected weather-resistant artwork will be displayed throughout the native demonstration gardens at Bailey Homestead from Nov. 1 through March 31. Initial entry drop-off is scheduled for Monday, Oct. 25, 9am-11am, at the Bailey Homestead (1300 Periwinkle Way, Sanibel). There is no entry fee.

Participants must be a member of either SCCF or the art league. Please click here to review and download the prospectus and exhibitor’s contract. If you have questions, please contact Jenny Evans at
