Hilton, Causey artwork on display at Burroughs Home

By Staff | Sep 11, 2009

It’s not too late to visit the Burroughs Home in Fort Myers to view the art of two Shell Point Retirement Community artists.

The paintings of residents Phil Hilton and Dorothy Causey will be on display through Thursday, Sept. 17 between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. weekdays and on evenings and weekends by appointment.

The two artists’ paintings were part of the September 4 Art Walk in downtown Fort Myers. They will be donating 50 percent of their proceeds to the Uncommon Friends Foundation.

Hilton, who has received awards in six states, will be displaying his watercolor paintings. Causey’s medium of choice is oil on canvas; she was the 2005 winner of the Angels of the Arts Award for lifetime achievement, presented by the Alliance of the Art. Both Shell Point residents, in addition to creating their own beautiful pieces of art work, help instruct others who may be new to the hobby.

Evening and weekend appointments to view the art work may be made by calling the Uncommon Friends Foundation at 239-337-9505.

The Uncommon Friends Foundation, established in 1993, is a character education foundation whose mission is to instill ethics, moral values and a sense of purpose in tomorrow’s leaders. The foundation is dedicated to enriching society by promoting the positive values author James D. Newton discovered in five unique men and their wives – Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, Harvey Firestone, Dr. Alexis Carrel and Charles Lindbergh – intellectual giants who helped shape the 20th Century.
