IS SOUTHWEST FLORIDA BEAUTIFUL ENOUGH? WATCH IT TURN UP A NOTCH AT CAROL MCARDLE’S SOLO ART SHOW AT SHANGRI-LA SPRINGS
Through her artwork Carol McArdle has been a herald for our local, natural beauty. Her vibrant paintings are a joyous shout out, proclaiming the beauty of Southwest Florida’s tropical scenery and wildlife. If you already know Carol McArdle’s work then this show will not disappoint. If this is your first encounter with her art, her unique depictions of mangrove roots, sea grape trees, beach scenes, birds and more are waiting to greet you.
McArdle’s fascination and keen insight of the beauty of the fast disappearing natural Florida is what guides her creative hand.

Carol McArdle will be at the opening reception for her show at the Shangri-La Springs, Bonita Springs to meet the guests. She says, "I am looking forward to meeting some new art and nature lovers at my first solo show at the historical and beautiful Shangri-La Springs”
