Jennifer’s boutique will host a book signing by artist Myra Roberts and author Brian Johnson on Thursday, April 13 from 2:00 p.m. until 6:00 p.m. Roberts is one of the best-selling artists in Southwest Florida. Since moving to Sanibel in 1999, her vintage-style paintings have evolved from quintessential flirtatious beach fun to tackle serious subjects such as Hurricane Charley, lost island landmarks and the horrors of the Holocaust. Roberts collaborated with author Brian Johnson on three books that will be available for purchase:
Roberts will also have her original artwork on display. Her paintings are in public and private collections across the United States and Europe, including the estate of Robert Rauschenberg. Roberts received letters of endorsement for her “Faces of Anne Frank” project from former Secretary of State Hilary Rodham Clinton, and the Jane Goodall Institute. Roberts does exhibitions and lectures about her art, much of which is based on interviews of Holocaust survivors and heroes. WGCU Public Media, in partnership with the Southwest Florida Community Foundation and the Women’s Fund of Southwest Florida, chose Roberts as one of five “2016 Makers: Women Who Make Southwest Florida,” based on her impact in the arts and social justice in Southwest Florida.
Complimentary wine, champagne and cupcakes will be served.
