A new group exhibition titled, “Abstracted” is coming to the Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center in downtown Fort Myers in August. The show features abstract works from artists Yvonne Krystman, Karen Gozzo Nolan, Michael Pohlman and Fort Myers-based painter Jeffrey Scott Lewis.  The show challenges the artists to create meaning through their own interpretation of the abstract works selected for the show.  Lewis joins us in studio to explore his broad portfolio of works covering more than three decades as a professional painter as well as the deeply personal narrative behind his most recent works.

The “Sounds of Summer” concert series at the Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center in downtown Fort Myers continues July 27 with a performance from Southwest Florida Hip Hop artist Chris Daniels.  The concert also serves as the official release party for Daniels’ new album, “Sweet Release: When Doves Cry Too.”  We’ll get a sneak preview as we hear tracks from the new album and explore our region’s vibrant hip hop scene and the deeply personal meanings and experiences that have inspired Daniels’ music.

My guest today is Dr. Ernesto Lasso de la Vega. He’s a local biologist who was born in Panama, but is now a US citizen. He’s worked at the Lee County Hyacinth Control District for more than 25 years, where he works to minimize aquatic weeds in public waters, and educate the public to that effect as well.
