See the works of six fine artists at this annual showing on Sunday.

 

 

 

Some of us homebodies would love to stroll art show after art show—minus the overwhelming, rubbernecking, shepherding crowds. Enter the annual 5 Painters and a Potter, on March 19, which offers a good range in media but with a much more intimate setting and relaxed pace. (Think chatter, music, snacks and flip-flops under some leafy shade.) The six local artists unite in the courtyard of ceramicist Jim Rice’s gallery and working studio, The Clay Place, for a gathering that’s somewhat like an ode to Florida—both in its collection of Gulfshore-inspired works and reunion of longtime and native Neapolitans. Rice exhibits alongside local favorites Paul Arsenault, Phil Fisher, Natalie Guess, Tara O’Neill and Rob Wobbe, bringing forth works from tropically hued oil paintings to Rice’s handspun fish pottery to dreamy watercolors to brilliant stained glass and more. naplesclayplace.com
